As part of our 'throw your own 3st' for July, we've put together a bunch of fireworks-themed cocktails. Though it may take a little prep and planning, this cocktail is worth the effort.
And just like we think any cocktail collection must have something with bourbon or whiskey, we feel the same about TEQUILA!
This one is really serving a few purposes. Obviously the booze has a specific role to play, and the fruit in the ice cubes is borderline fruit salad. But the coconut water in the mixer is the ideal way to stay hydrated during your summer cocktail sessions! Isn't it some sort of super food or something?
To make your ice cubes, place a few berries (we used blueberries and raspberries) in your ice cube trays and fill with water. Freeze 'em overnight and they're done. So, go ahead, make the store run now... you can thank us later when people are complimenting your patriotic ice cubes.
ice cube trays (for the fruit cubes)
2 oz Cabo Wabo Blanco Tequila
.5 oz fresh lime juice
.5 oz simple syrup
4 oz coconut water
fruit ice cubes
Place the tequila, lime juice, simple syrup and coconut water in your cocktail shaker with plain ice cubes. Shake to chill and strain into your glass with those fancy-ass fruit ice cubes. Serve and gloat in your cocktail glory.
