Beach Drinks - Bloody Mary & Pina Colada
Today (sadly) marks the end of my beach vacation, but to end things on a proper note, here are two simple cocktail recipes perfect for the beach, a vacation or just any time.
Lots of crushed ice
Horseradish (use to taste, between 1 tsp and 1 tbs usually)
Worshestershire sauce (a dash, perhaps a tsp?)
Salt and Pepper
Hot sauce (if desired, I like it spicy personally)
Juice of 1 lime (or lemon)
Celery stalks, lime or lemon slices, olives, dill pickle slices or whatever you prefer for garnish
Mix tomato juice to taste with flavorings, adjust as needed.
Meanwhile, fill a tall glass with crushed ice. Add vodka, then pour in tomato mixture, stir and serve!
Basic Pina Colada:
High quality light or dark rum
Simple syrup (equal parts sugar & water heated until all melts into a syrup)
Ground cinnamon for garnish, a slice of pineapple works too
Blend in a blender, adjust for taste and consistency, serve!
