Friends, how is it not the weekend yet? If we’re being honest I haven’t had a full day off in a month so this week is dragging on and on and on. Jeesh! J and I have completely different tastes when it comes to cocktails. He sticks to old fashions while I prefer something with lots of juice. Hence, today’s post – a summer drink for him and a summer drink for her!
A Cuba Libre For Him
Let’s start with his. Ladies and gentleman, meet the Cuba Libre. Filled with coca cola, rum, and a touch of lime – he’s going to LOVE it. I found the recipe a few years ago and have been making it for J ever since because he loves coca cola so much. Needless to say, it’s become quite the staple around our house.
2 oz dark rum
Topped with Coca Cola
Add all ingredients to a highball glass and add ice. Enjoy!
A Madras for Her
Now, on to her drink – and, my personal favorite. Meet the Madras! A lovely, ladylike drink made with lots and lots of juice so it’s not too boozy. It’s such a simple summer cocktail, and is perfect for mixing up on a whim while laying out by the pool. Trust me, you’re absolutely going to love it!
2 oz vodka
2 oz cranberry juice
1 oz orange juice
Add ingredients to a highball glass filled with ice. Stir and garnish with a lime wedge!
