Guys I am so behind on recipe posting! I have a ton in my little notebook of stuff that I need to get written up and published ASAP! So be prepared for a recipe posting spree over the next few weeks, K?
I again bring your attention to the fact that it’s summertime and that means HOT. Or if you live where I do, it means HUMID with a side of sticky. You don’t really want to do much of anything except take time out to sip on something delicious and preferably very cold.
I do not drink mixed drinks because that kind of alcohol always seems a little heavy on my stomach. Plus a lot of drinks are made so they are super sweet and I’m not one for sweet. Even with wine I do not like sweet. Scott on the other hand likes mixed drinks a great deal and I will occasionally make him a little sumptin’ sumptin’ to sip on while dinner cooks or perhaps while he’s manning the grill out back.
This new drink just came to me not that long ago and it ended up being a beautiful combo. Scott loves it and it’s super easy to make.
Andrea’s Coconut Lime Spritzer
- The juice of half a fresh lime + one slice for garnish
- 2oz of Coconut Rum
- Lime Seltzer
In a small tumbler squeeze in the lime juice and add the rum. Fill the glass the rest of the way with the lime seltzer. Stir, add the lime slice for a garnish and serve!
Does it get any easier? Even I can take a few sips of this drink and be very happy about it! The drink is cool and has a crisp taste from the lime and the seltzer. The rum isn’t overpowering and the drink doesn’t come across as overly sweet. It’s a nice sipping cocktail and perfect for a hot day.
Having a party? Make this your signature drink! One of the best party tips is that if you are going to serve drinks, consider making a signature drink to serve instead of having multiple types of beer or wine available. This way it helps you stretch a buck while still entertaining your guests with class.
This drink is perfect for that! Because does it get any cheaper than seltzer? You can get liters of it for under a $1. Most stores will even offer up deals where you can buy 5 for $5. I know that Giant Eagle and Whole Foods both have such deals. I prefer the Whole Foods seltzer because it’s a bit fizzier in my opinion but any seltzer will work!
Now you have a nice refreshing drink for Thirsty Thursday!
Have fun guys, and remember, always play with your food drinks! Enjoy!
