Tasty Beverage

One of my absolute favorite summer activities is boating. There are quite a few lakes in the foothills where I am from, and many of my friends have boats. Most weekends were spent lounging at the sandbar, wakeboarding, or floating in a cove. I think I am my happiest out on the lake with my family and friends.

Quite a few years ago, before my sister and brother in law had a boat, we were out on the lake with my cousin. As usual, cocktails were involved. I don't quite remember how we came up with this little creation , but I'm so happy we did! My sister and I brought the supplies with us, and mixed our drinks on the boat. My cousin Steve was intrigued and asked for a sip. After he took a taste, he looked at us and said, "now that's a tasty beverage!" And that my friends, is how our cocktail was named.

Since that summer, my sister and I have deemed this our summer cocktail. We even bought cute little "sippy cups" to keep on the boat for our Tasty Beverages. It's a simple, and refreshing drink. Perfect for a day on the boat, poolside BBQ, or any hot summer day. I promise you want to try this before summer is over.




Tasty Beverage: (makes 1 cocktail)
2oz. Absolut Ruby Red Vodka
Juice from 1/2 Lime  
1c  Club Soda
Splash of Lemon Lime Soda

Directions:
Pour Ruby Red vodka, lime juice, and club soda into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake lightly to mix, (be careful not to shake too much because of the carbonation in the club soda). Pour over ice and top with a splash of lemon lime soda (I prefer 7-Up). Garnish with lime, and serve.







I hope you all enjoy this classic summer cocktail as much as we do! It's a favorite for my sister and I, and always reminds me of our best summers out on the lake.

I'm so excited because tonight after work, we're heading up to Auburn to go camping on the lake and spend the weekend with my sister, brother in law, and friends! I cannot wait to hold my precious nephew and get all his lovin'! I haven't been out on the boat nearly enough in the past few years, and I am so looking forward to wakeboarding and spending time with my sister. And you better believe I packed everything to make a few Tasty Beverages!





Cheers!

  1. Hmm, I would definitely be interested to try this drink. For some reason, I just assume that I'm not going to like tonic, but with the flavored vodka, I might actually like it!
