Hey there guys! I’m here to give you some special tips when it comes to making the best signature cocktails. Who needs a traditional drink, when you can create your own. Not sure what type of drink you are? Well, me either! How to avoid this? Try taking a quick brainfall.com quiz. I took one, here’s what I found!
“You are Fruit Juice”
Some say you’re no fun, but you know better than to waste your time drinking. Not only does alcohol cut down on time better spent being productive, studies show it can have an adverse effect on your long-term health. You have plenty of friends, but you don’t get invited to the coolest parties. Sometimes you might wish you weren’t so different, but other times you consider yourself better than the rest.
Shocked? I’m not! I always knew girly drinks were my thing! Yea I said it, I’m a complete wuss. Please don’t make fun of me. I would love to lie and say I love a good stiff one, but in actuality, I’m sending smoke signals if my drink tastes like more than Juice with a hint of alcohol. If your anything like me, let me help you find a new fav…Goody!!
I typically don’t drink much however, i’m making it my New Years resolution to become more “fun.” Maybe then I can hang with the “cool kids” Lol! I’m always that one at the bar staring down the menu for 10+ minutes trying to decide what I want only to completely pick apart whichever drink I choose. In other words, creating my own. So I thought, well, why not just make my own recipe to take with me. You should try it this week.
First off, my perfect blend must absolutely have pineapple juice. My goto-A Malibu Bay Breeze. Lame? I know right! I’m an old soul. I’m going to turn things up a bit though. I’m challenging that one by making it, my own.
Here’s my suggestion; 1 part malibu rum, 1/2 strawberry liqueur, 1 1/2 Pineapple juice, 1 part lychee juice, and 1 half strawberry. Perfection! It should come out looking pretty orange colored but if you want to make it just a bit more colorful, add some maraschino cherry juice. What to call it? A Malibu Caribbean Jewel. Too prissy for you? No problem. I’ll take it a bit further into the deep side by altering it up a bit.
Here’s the alter ego. 1/2 part Green Chartreuse, 1/2 part Lemon juice, 1 1/2 parts whiskey, 1 whole Marachino Berry, 1 wedge Pineapple. Who says you can’t hang with the guys? “The Whiskey Fix” .
Take these recipe’s with you this Thursday. Gotta love Thirsty Thursday’s right? Perfecto!
