Put the Lime in the Coconut… Cocktail

In a last ditch effort to say goodbye to summer while the last few warm winds sweep through, I dreamt of a Goodbye Summer Cocktail with coconut and lime.  It tastes like an island!  At least I know I can make these and put little umbrellas in them to take a break from the coming winter weather.

Put the Lime in the Coconut… Cocktail

In a glass, combine:

  • 2 shots vanilla vodka
  • 1 tbsp. coconut syrup (or coconut rum)
  • one slice of lime, with a little squeeze
  • top off with zero calorie lemon lime soda
  • a couple ice cubes

 

Goodbye summer!

Sparkling Creamsicle

I kindly received a complimentary bottle of a newly launched sparkling aperitif, Il Spr!z.  It is an orange flavored sparkling wine.  What a refreshing summer combination!  At first, I thought it was going to be very sweet, but it certainly wasn’t… it was slightly bitter, very orange, and perfectly bubbly…and I really enjoyed it!

In addition to having a glass on its own, I decided to make a Sparkling Creamsicle by adding vanilla vodka to the orange sparkling wine.  YUM!  A great summer drink.

In a wine glass, add:

  • 2 shots vanilla vodka
  • fill the rest of the glass with orange sparkling wine
  • squeeze in an orange slice

In the fall, you could also add some cinnamon.

Cheers!
