NOTHING beats a fresh margarita... fresh lime juice plz... none of this pre-mixed B.S. they sell... yuck


Frozen watermelon mojitos! Yum!!! :D


I make my own cucumber infused vodka.  One 1/2 gallon of Trader Joe's Vodka of the Gods and 1 large English cucmber sliced about 1/4 inch.  Put these two ingredients in a glass jar (I have an infuser jar but a sun tea jar would work, too as long as you can get the lid on airtight).  Let this sit for 2 weeks, shaking once a day.  On the 14th day, strain the cucumbers out and put the vodka back into the original bottle (make sure to save it). Then, here's what I do with it...

Make the best bloody mary EVER!  Use the cucumber slices for garnish.  In my bloody mary I also add JD's bacon flavored salt and wizard's worchestershire sauce plus fresh grated horseraddish.  You can't beat the cucumber taste in the bloddy mary! ;)b

Enjoy responsibly!


strawberry daiquiris, for sure. I just went strawberry picking last week, then had some friends over and we made so tasty! Even better when you put a whole berry or two on top. mmm


tequila sunrise is my all time fav, I look making them and putting extra cherries in it. :)


I started drinking micheladas in Mexico-- it's a beer cocktail, basically.

You start with a cold mug, then rim the glass with salt and chili pepper. Then in the bottom you throw a bit of lime juice, vegan Worcestershire sauce (yeah Wizard!), and a dash of hot sauce, then add ice and the beer. Stir, and serve! Sounds weird, but I LOVE IT. I'm not much for sweet cocktails, so other than the bloody mary, there's not too much out there for the savory crowd, but I adore this one.


The winner is GFVeganmom with:

Lemonade + gingerale + Raspberry vodka = ahhhhhhhhh!

And any blended margarita will do.  Its like a slushee with booze!

Yay! Congratulations GFVeganmom! I'll be in contact soon to get your mailing address so we can get you your prize!
