Summer of 2014. Hot days, Mosquitos, Flooded basements. The joys of late June in the midwest. How fondly I remember the 80’s. Summer days were filled listening to Culture Club, Kenny Loggins and Prince. Tanning with baby oil. I’m not sure if my music tastes have improved but I am still the poster child for unsafe sun consumption. I do wear sunscreen but as I slather my child with SPH50, I spritz a SPH4 on myself and deeply inhale the fake coconut fumes. Last week I was invited for a little R&R at a friends pool. Inviting me to your pool guarantees a fantastic cocktail. I was really excited by the cherry tequila I made this week. With Fourth of July on it’s way, I had to give it a patriotic name,
Cherry Serrano Sparkler
2 shots of cherry tequila
1 can of diet 7 up
1 tsp of maraschino cherry juice.
3 slices of serrano pepper.
Combine in Tall glass with lots of ice. As the drink sits the peppers give you a bit of heat. At the end of this cocktail it is very spicy and you need to drink another.. You can triple the quantities to make a pitcher.
Sorry about the lack of photos. Had too much fun at the pool.
Happy July 4th!!!
