I was just getting myself a drink while I multitask away my evening doing boring things. I’ve got a recipe for you if you like tequila like I do.
Fresca is a grapefruit based citrus drink akin to Squirt. It is one of THE best mixes for alcoholic drinks. I couldn’t get the bar I worked at to carry it, but you can substitute Tom Collins for it. Of course it’s not as good.
Since Covid, ya know – BC, Fresca has been VERY hard to find. I knew I should have bought 5 bottles last week when it was finally in stock. I swear I opened the first bottle and just drank half of it down in one swig. It was like water that had been kissed by the flavor fairies. HA! That’s funny right thar.
So, here is the recipe cuz I know you’re dying to try it. Tell me how it tastes.
- 8 Oz Fresca
- 2 Oz Tart Cherry Juice
- 1.5 Oz Tequila
Tart Cherry Juice is supposed to have something that’s really good to help relieve pain. So of course I bought some. The article said 12 ounces a day, I think. I poured myself a glass and drank it. After about a half hour, my lips stopped puckering.
Usually I’d make this with cranberry juice. Basically you want something tart.
The reason Fresca makes such a great mixer is due to the fact that it is calorie free. As a diabetic, a bartender, and an occasional drinker, I can’t OD on the sugar liquids. So, along with those 4 bottles of Fresca, there was a bottle of Jose Cuervo. I’ve got enough left for one more drink.
Excuse me, please…. ♥
