Rocky Point is famous for its tequila and delicious cerveza, but what if you get a little tired of having to go to the bar and store to buy your drinks? You should consider making some cocktails in the comfort of your condo, that way you can save money and also try your hand at bar tending (just kidding).
Sometimes it’s nice to try something a little out of the ordinary, so here are a few drink recipes that we thought you guys would enjoy and might spice up your next vacation to Rocky Point. The first recipe we wanted to share with you guys is the Raspberry Mimosa. This is a great way to start off brunch, or for a light drink at any point in the day! To prepare your Raspberry Mimosa you are going to want to start off with pouring 1 teaspoon of raspberry liquor into 8 champagne glasses. Fill the glasses halfway with orange juice and the rest with champagne and then add a raspberry for the finishing touch. Now enjoy!
Raspberry Mimosa is a great way to start off your day, but you might be looking for something a little different. If you are on vacation with your friends and family and bust out this cocktail you are sure to have everyone impressed with your cocktail creation skills. This next drink is called the Green Hornet. It takes a little longer to get going, but the end result is well worth your time. To start this drink you need to heat 1/3 of a cup of sugar and water in a sauce pan until the sugar is dissolved, once it’s done chill it. Pour this cold syrup into into a strainer with 1 cup of fresh mint and 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro and then strain it. Grab your 4 glasses and rub the rims of 4 glasses with a slice of jalapeno and a lime wedge. After you’re done dip them in salt and sugar. Prepare your glasses with ice. Get a cocktail shaker and pour half of your syrup, the juice of 1 lime and 1/2 cup of tequila in a shaker, shake it well and then strain into 2 glasses. To finish the cocktail top it off with some ginger beer. And there you have the Green Hornet!
If you are having a get together at your condo, or maybe hanging out with a lot of people at the beach perhaps it’s best you create a drink several people can enjoy at the same time. Our suggestion for you is to whip up some Mojito Lemonade. Everyone loves Mojitos, so why wouldn’t they enjoy some Mojito Lemonade. To get started you are going to need some mint leaves, lime wedges, and a large pitcher (depending on how much lemonade you want). Take your mint leaves and lime wedges and muddle them at the bottom of a large pitcher. Add lime-mint-syrup, rum (be careful you don’t want to make it too strong), lime juice, and more ice to make sure it’s as refreshing as can be when people are drinking it on the beach. Top it off with some club soda to add taste. Now your Mojito Lemonade is ready to be served. Depending on personal preference you can garnish each glass with a lime wedge and mint leaf for some extra taste and traditional mojito style.
