CharlieMac Sunday Drink Specials
Its hot out there, right? How about some nice cold drinks to take the edge of the heat? Just so you know, ice is used in all the recipes listed and you should definitely have some ready when you begin your At Home Bartendering. Let's Get Mixin'!
Moscato Margarita (original source)
¼ c Granulated Sugar
1 c Strawberries (chopped)
1 c tequila
1 c Moscato
1 c Triple Sec
½ c Lime Juice
Rim your chosen glass by sliding a lime wedge around the rim and dipping it in the sugar. Now, in a blender with ice you are going to add the ingredients and blend until smooth (add more ice if you think it isn’t slushy enough). Pour into a glass and garnish with any left over lime wedges.
(Well, there WAS a full one...)
Bikini Martini (original source)
4 oz Coconut Rum
4 oz Pineapple Juice
2 oz Vodka
1 oz Grenadine
Garnish – Maraschino Cherries, Pineapple Wedge
In a shaker with ice add the ingredients (except the garnish), minus the grenadine, and strain into either two martini glasses or one very big martini glass. Next, slowly pour in the grenadine so it sits on the bottom and garnish with cherries and pineapple.
Salted Caramel Pudding Shots (original source)
1 (3oz) box Vanilla Pudding
2/3 c Milk
¾ c Vodka
1 (8oz) tub Cool Whip
½ c Caramel Sauce (also have some extra on standby for garnish)
1 tbsp Flaky Sea Salt
Start by mixing together the pudding mix, milk and vodka in a large mixing bowl. Let the mixture refrigerate for about five minutes (05:00) then add in half a cup of Cool Whip and the caramel sauce and mix. Finally, disperse the mixture among several shot glasses, adding a dollop of Cool Whip on each one, a little bit of caramel drizzle and finally sprinkle on the sea salt on all the shots.
Fizzy Lifting Drink (original source)
1 c Sprite
1 c Vodka
1 Pixy Stix
1 Rocky Candy Stick
In a glass with ice add all the ingredients and stir it up with the rock candy stick.
Mimosa Float (original source)
¼ c Melted White Chocolate
½ c Rainbow Sprinkles
1 (750ml) bottle Champagne (ex. Prosecco)
1 qt Rainbow Sherbet
Rim your choice of glass by dipping the glass rim into the melted white chocolate and then dipping it into the sprinkles. Now, add one to two scoops of rainbow sherbet to the glass and top it off with the champagne.
All, if not most, of these drink ingredients can be found at your local liquor store. Keep in mind that the summer heat is unforgiving and you need to make sure to drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and cool. Townsquare Media and KIXS 108 do not condone underage drinking and encourage you to drink responsibly. Have a safe and fun weekend!
