Here in the Lowcountry, summertime is hot … we’re talkin’ sizzling hot. Lucky for us, the team at Tito’s Handmade Vodka shared a few recipes to help us cool down. As long as you’ve got a bottle of Tito’s, a pool and sunscreen, you’ll be set, but a pool-lovin’ pup is sure to take any party to the next level. If you’re in the market for a furry friend, check out this month’s Tito’s Handmade Vodka pet on page 26.
Pull out the shades and the SPF because it’s time to hit the pool. Between smooth black raspberry, a peachy splash of something sweet and a tart cranberry finish to keep your cocktail balanced, you’ll be sippin’ poolside all summer long. Sorry y’all, swimming pool not included.
1 ounce Tito’s Handmade Vodka
1/2 ounce black raspberry liqueur
1/2 ounce peach schnapps
2 ounces cranberry juice
2 ounces orange juice
1 ounce sour mix
Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a pint glass over fresh ice. Garnish with an orange slice.
