Melt away the summer heat with this awesomely refreshing margarita.

Cilantro, lime, tequila; compliment each other in this refreshing summer margarita.  Are you one of those people who shy’s away from tequila because of that one crazy night you had way back when…Banish those worries to the basement because it turns out that it’s a certain kind of tequila that makes some people go a little nuts.  You can take my word for it if you want, or go check this article out about the Tequila Sunrise, it goes into all the grimy details.  In one short summarized sentence: Stick to the silver tequila and you should be just fine.

Every gal’s got a lil cowgirl in ‘um

Get ready to add a little spunk to your step with the Cowgirl Koolaid.  Adapted and inspired by Dekuyper, this thirst quenchingly refreshing cocktail combines the tanginess of cranberry with the musky-ness of Whiskey.

So maybe you’re wondering what’s all this nonsense about Red Stag Black Cherry Whiskey by Jim Beam.  Long name, I know.

Star Spangled Shooters

fourth of July shooter recipes

Celebrate this 4th of july with this flight of three tasty red white and blue shooters.

America.  Land of the free, because of the brave.  We are a country that certainly has our issues, but we always manage to bond together and work through them.  Always united.  All of our blemishes and accomplishments are what make us the great country that we are.  Always growing, always changing.

The fourth of July is less than a week away! Oh how that crept up on me.  These three shots are not only festive, but also taste delicious!  They take tequila, vodka, and malibu rum to a whole new level.  The best part about them is that they can also be made into drinks too if shots aren’t your style.
