"Healthy" Fruity Cocktails.
Wednesday, April 03, 2013
It's no secret that I enjoy drinking! After baby's in bed it's mommy time! And that means I run for an hour or that it's happy hour. Sometimes both. :-)
Now, usually I'll go for either a dark beer (one I can chew! Lol) or a glass or two of wine, but sometimes I get in the mood for a cocktail. And when your food is (mostly) healthy, you start thinking, "Why not my drinks, also?" That's how all this came up!
There are some basic switches you can make, and I included them at the bottom. But first! The fancy stuff!
Makes a pitcher! Great for girls night!
2 12oz bottle of Odwalla Mango Lime Twist
4 cups Tequila
1 16 oz bottle of Bolthouse Farms Amazing Mango
1 cup Triple Sec
Throw it in a pitcher and mix well. Serve over ice!
I didn't always like mai tais since I'm not a fan of rum. But this is good!
1 oz Light Rum
1/5 oz Triple Sec
1 1/2 oz Odwalla Serious Tropical Energy
1 1/2 oz Bolthouse Farms Passion Orange Guava
1/2 Dark Rum
Dash of grenadine
Mix up everything except the dark rum and pour in glass. Add dark rum on top.
Beautiful to see, delicious to drink.
4 oz Bolthouse Farms Orange Carrot Juice
2 oz Tequila
1/2 oz Grenadine
Add tequila and orange carrot juice to glass. Stir. SLOWLY add grenadine.
Okay, I've tortured you enough. Maybe I'll make another blog post with more recipes. I got a mad mango mojito, a green bloody mary, and sex on the beach. I'm trying to make a washington apple, since my husband loves them, but so far no luck.
Anyway, here's a good list of replacement mixers!
Orange juice for Bolthouse Farms orange carrot juice
Cranberry for Bolthouse Farms açaí 10 superblend
Pineapple for Odwalla seriouse tropical energy OR Bolthouse Farms passion orange guava
