Summer Drink Recipes

Summer Drink Recipes

We offer you four summer drink recipes that are easy to make and taste great.


Michelada

Ingredients

  • 1 can Mexican lager (Tecate, Dos Equis, etc.)
  • 2 oz clamato juice
  • 1 oz tequila
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • dash Worcestershire sauce
  • as much hot sauce as you like (Tapatio is our favorite)
  • chile salt and lime slices for garnish

Instructions

Salt the rim of a pint glass then fill with ice. Add the clamato, tequila, lime juice, Worcestershire and hot sauce. Fill the remainder with the beer. Stir. Garnish with lime slice.


Limoncello

Ingredients

  • 10 lemons, just the zest
  • 1 (750 mL) bottle high-proof pure grain alcohol (we used 190 proof Everclear)
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar

Instructions

Scrub the lemons thoroughly. Using a microplane, zest the lemons. Be careful to get only the zest and none of the bitter white pith. This should yield 1.5-2 cups of zest. Place the zest in a gallon glass jar. Pour the bottle of alcohol into the jar and seal with a lid. Stash your jar away in a cool dark place for at least 3 weeks (or up to six weeks if steeping with lower proof vodka). After the waiting period, combine the water and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve sugar. Let the syrup cool to room temperature before adding to the alcohol. Give everything a good stir, and let it sit another week. The longer it sits, the more rounded the flavor. Strain the limoncello through a strainer lined with cheesecloth. Store the limoncello in your freezer.

 

Limoncello Moscato

  • 2 oz Limoncello
  • 6 oz Moscato, chilled

Instructions

Pour the moscato into a martini glass. Pour the limoncello on top.


La Doña Margarita

Ingredients

  • 3 oz tequila blanco
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1.5 oz lime juice
  • 0.5 oz honey syrup*
  • 2-4 drops arbol chile tincture*

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake. Pour over ice in a margarita glass.

*Honey Syrup: Equal parts honey and hot water. Dissolve the honey into the hot water. Let cool.

 

*Arbol Chile Tincture

  • 20 arbol chiles
  • 1 3/4 cup Everclear

Instructions

Combine ingredients in a pint sized mason jar. Place lid on jar. Let sit two weeks, shaking vigorously for 5-10 seconds every day.


Watermelon Agua Fresca

Ingredients

  • 12 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 lime, sliced
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 cup simple syrup (equal parts hot water and sugar, stir to dissolve sugar.)
  • White Rum (optional)

Instructions

Working in batches, combine the watermelon and water in the blender and purée until smooth. If you prefer a thicker consistency, pour the purée straight into a pitcher. For a smoother consistency, strain through a fine mesh strainer before placing in the pitcher. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Add an ounce or two of white rum to individual glasses and stir to combine, if desired.
