Holiday Weekends Deserve Great Cocktails! Tasty Sips for Memorial Weekend

It’s a holiday weekend and it’s time to have a party- even if it’s a party of 1 or 2 or a group of 25-50! You can have a great time and generally speaking great weather on both coasts! We have all kinds of great cocktails for this weekend and we are starting off with the Sex and the City Cocktails– just because we can — so we will. Plus they are easy to make and easy to take to a party.

Want a more serious but fun drink? This is where it gets really interesting with some unusual concoctions featuring gin, tequila and something new from Bolivia!
Corzo White Sand Martini
Corzo-White-Sand.jpg
1.5 parts CORZO Silver Tequila
1.5parts White Grape Juice
.75parts St. GermainBombay Red, White, and Sapphire( this one is super-yummy!)
SAPPHIRE-Raspberry-Mint_fin.jpg
1.5 Parts Bombay Sapphire
1 Part Fresh Lemon Juice
.75 Parts Simple Syrup
3-4 Fresh Raspberries
3 Parts Club Soda
Garnish: Sprig of Mint Leafs
Muddle raspberries with simple syrup and lemon juice. Add ice, Bombay Sapphire and stir well. Add more ice and top with club soda.
Agwa de Bolivia– the coca plant derived liquor. (You have to try this to wrap your head, tongue and tastebuds around this experience. The “coca” has been removed from the spirit– but some of the buzz is still there)
AGWA_-Margarita.jpg
3 parts Tequila (Corzo or Cazadores are excellent choices)
1 part Agwa de Bolivia– maybe a smidge more if you like– for a more herbal/floral effect 1 part each fresh lime juice — like Volcano Liime Juice and Volcano Lemon Juice for jolts of serious citrus flavor.
Toss it into a cocktail shaker OR a blender and watch out for the buzz that hits you from the Agwa de Bolivia. It’s a fun drink. You can drink this straight up in a margarita glass, frozen in any kind of glass or on the rocks if you are using a shaker. Definitely a unique taste!
