Winter lovin’ (happened so fast)

I’m not generally one to gloat, boast or brag, so allow me just this one…it’s 74 degrees here right now, I’m sitting on my front porch writing this, and I f-ing LOVE IT! This past Sunday we had a little backyard, chili & cornbread get together – where we burned two Christmas trees and shenanigans ensued – and I had shorts and a t-shirt on! Having lived in New York for a damn long time, I can safely say that living in a warm climate is just superior and no one can tell me otherwise. Basically, this is just a disclaimer to all of you that if I’m ever thinking of moving somewhere like Minneapolis, remind me that I once wrote these words and that I should vehemently reconsider.

But I digress. Let’s get back to the important things like making delicious cocktails. This one is in honor of the sunshine – it’s light, refreshing and pretty damn tasty. So let’s get to it.

Gulf of MexicoGulf of Mexico

*2 parts tequila blanco
*1 part Aperol
*2 parts cranberry juice (make it fancy!)
*1 part ginger beer
*1 part seltzer
*1/2 part Jack Rudy Tonic (I honestly can’t get enough of this stuff)
*A few dashes of orange bitters

Mix it all together in your favorite glass, give it a stir, and enjoy. Even if it’s 27 degrees where you are, it’s okay! This cocktail will make you feel like you’re in the tropics.

Okay, I’ll stop being a warm-weather asshole now. Whether you have snow on the ground or sun in the sky, as long as you like my drinks, I love all of you! Until next time.
