Cool Down With A Cold Drink


Its August and its starting to get really, really hot! I was thinking the other day (as the sweat was pouring down my face)…I know gross, right?…that I should make a drink that can really cool me down. Then I remembered a Halloween drink recipe that I’d heard of from the House Of Blues. Its called Swamp Water and its supposed to be D-licious! You’ll need to buy some alcohol (sorry kids I don’t have a Shirley Temple version, but don’t let that stop you from being creative). Its also best if you can use mason jars for glasses to really give the drink that spooky bayou feel. Here’s the list of ingredients:

  1. 1 oz. Skyy Vodka

  2. splash of blue Curacao

  3. orange juice

Fill a very tall glass with ice, pour in alcohol, fill the rest of the way with orange juice, mix and enjoy! Use a plastic glow-stick as a swizzle stick, which gives the drinks an eerie, magical radiance. Bottoms Up!
