CharlieMac Saturday Drink Specials
Oh, lets just skip the annoying dialogue and get right to the drink mixing, yes? With that in mind, do remember that its hot out there and you should always accompany your alcoholic drink with water so you don't can stay hydrated. Also be sure to drink responsibly and safely. With that said, let's commence the at home bartendering.
Pineapple Colada (original source)
2 Pineapples (tops sliced off)
4 oz Light Rum
1 oz Dark Rum
4 oz Coconut Cream
1 splash (less than ½ oz) Pineapple Juice
1 splash (less than ½ oz) Coconut Milk
Garnish – Umbrella (critical for completion)
Gut out ¾ of the insides of a pineapple (and don’t pierce the walls otherwise your drink will leak). Take the pineapple fillings you cut out and put them into a blender with light and dark rum, coconut cream, pineapple juice, coconut milk and ice. Blend until the mixture is nice and slushy. Finally pour the contents into the hollowed-out pineapple and add an umbrella for pizzazz.
Firefly Lemonade (original source)
4 c Lemonade
4 c Tonic
1 c Blue Curacao
1 c Midori
½ c Vodka
Garnish – 4 Glowsticks
Add some crushed ice to a glass and then pour in the tonic, Blue Curacao, Midori and Vodka. Next, stir with a glow stick (make sure the stick is glowing otherwise it defeats the purpose of the glow stick’s involvement) and enjoy.
Rosé All Day Punch (original source)
1 (750ml) bottle Rosé Wine
1/3 c Vodka
3 (12 oz each) cans Spindrift Blackberry
1 oz Lime Juice
2 tbsp Honey
½ c Blackberries
¼ c Raspberries
¼ c Strawberries (sliced)
1 Lime (sliced)
Garnish – Blackberries, Raspberries, skewering stick (for the berries)
Combine all the ingredients into a pitcher with ice and stir. Then when the concoction is all mixed up, pour into a glass and garnish with a skewer of raspberries and blackberries. Since you made a pitcher full, feel free to share…or not…honestly its up to you and I have no judgement either way.
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!
