Summer Solstice

Today is Summer Solstice, which means only one thing – the season to relax is here! Throw on your swimsuit, mark your spot by the pool, and relish the taste of summer with a tropical cocktail in hand. Try a raspberry margarita. In a blender, mix 1 ½ ounces tequila, 1 ounce triple sec, 1 ounce lime juice, and ½ cup frozen raspberries with ice. Blend until frothy. Pour the mixture into a chilled highball glass and garnish with fresh raspberries. When using fresh fruit, add sugar to taste. If you like Piña Coladas, you’ll love the Mexicolada. Combine 1 ½ ounces tequila, ¾ ounce coffee liqueur, 2 ounces pineapple juice, ¼ ounce cream of coconut, ¾ ounce sweet cream, and 1 scoop of crushed ice in a blender or shaker. Pour into a highball glass and enjoy!
