The Summer Daze – Memorial Day

IMG_4715

Happy summer everyone! Right now I’m in Palm Springs and it is appropriately hot and sunny. So, a drink to celebrate the new season, whether it’s already arrived where you are, or if it’s coming soon.

The Summer Daze

  • 2 oz tequila
  • 1 oz key lime juice
  • 10 drops “Lindsay” pecan, habanero, magnolia bitters (I understand if you don’t have this; the spice and nut flavors are the most important so many substitutions can apply)
  • 4-5 oz apple soda (this I found at a craft cocktail festival, but there are definitely many options I’ve seen)
  1. Combine all ingredients in a glass with ice.
  2. Stir gently to mix.
  3. Enjoy, while poolside with a giant inflatable donut.

Tasting Notes:

BN: I liked this more than the individual ingredients. The apple soda which was too strong and candy-esque (tasted just like a Jolly Rancher) was nicely tempered by the lime, and altogether it was a really nice summer drink. Sort of like a slightly appley margarita. The bitters are AWESOME, and if you can get your hands on them, do! 

PiC: I love tequila, and I love key lime, so the chances were good that I would like this – and I did. It was almost like drinking sour apple candy (big fan of the sour candy over here) but still crisp and refreshing. I would drink many of these.
