Top Mixed Drinks For The Summer
Summer’s coming, and you know what that means…. It’s time for me to get some cool cocktails!
Here are some of my favorites that are quick and easy, and will have you saying “Fun-Fun” in no time!
Have you ever had a prairie chicken? It’s a great way to start off your day. It’s breakfast in a drink from, and you don’t have to cook it. All that you need is an ounce of gin, an egg (no, I won’t lay one for you), salt and pepper. Break the egg and gently pour it in a wine glass, pour the cheap liquor over it, and add salt and pepper to taste. Or, if you prefer, give it to a chick, and just drink cheap beer for breakfast.
How about a breakfast margarita? Take a half of a can of concentrated orange juice, 5 ounces of tequila, 3 ounces of a ginger-flavored cheap liquor, 2 cups of ice and a 1/2 teaspoon of grated ginger, then blend them together until the ice is crushed. Mix a tablespoon of orange juice concentrate and a tablespoon of kosher salt on a plate, then dip the rims of two glasses into them to coat them. Pour the mixture into the glasses and you have a gingery-orangey breakfast margarita. No eggs required!
I might like worms all year round, but I’ve been known to eat a bit of fruit when it gets hot out. If you’re in a festive kind of mood, think about adding some cheap wine to your cheap liquor and making a nice fruity white wine sangria. Here’s my secret recipe: I take a pint of strawberries, a couple of oranges, a couple of lemons, three peaches, and three bottles of white wine (I love Sweet Cheeks Sweet White wine). I cut up the fruit, get rid of the peels, and throw it and the wine in a big bowl to sit from 4 to 24 hours. Room temperature is best, so I leave it right in my coop (you might want to try your kitchen counter, though). Once I’m ready to serve it, I add a quart of sparkling water and some ice to be ladled into people’s cups with fruit in it. Yum!
All of the recipes have one important thing in common. They all taste best — and cost less – when you use cheap liquor from me at Dirt Cheap. Come on down, and I’ll help get your summer time cluckin’ with some cheap-cheap, fun-fun; just the way you like it!
