Chilly Berry Margarita

Mixed Drinks with Limoncello , Tequila Limoncello Drinks

Nothing beats the summer heat like this Chilly Berry Margarita. I once had one in Florida at an early dinner (~3:15pm) and received a brief respite from the sensation that I was being deep fried by the Florida sun. Florida isn't for Scandinavians, just sayin'...

Now this recipe makes two drinks, so don't be a stingy lush like me and try to keep them both because they melt. Also, strawberries contain a lot of pesticides so be sure to buy organic if you're feeling ridiculous.

The Ariana Grande

Mixed Drinks with Limoncello , Tequila Limoncello Drinks

Behold, the Ariana Grande...so named because you think it's Mexican but really it's 100% Italian. Actually, it's a mix of both but I'm keeping the name 'cuz it's funny.

Since Mexico stole (and bedazzled) the Italian flag, we're going to return the favor by borrowing a few ingredients from south of the border. Normally I love jalapeños and cilantro like the President loves Puerto Rico, but in this drink the flavors just meld together and work.

I love this photo because it appears to be poured down from heaven (just like Ariana). And if you look closely you can see that even the margarita glass is very excited about this drink.

Party Thyme Cocktail

Gin Limoncello Drinks , Mixed Drinks with Limoncello

Out of all the drinks on this site, this one is the punniest, so I apologize if that offends you. Of course if you're that easily offended, you won't be following my blog for long, so...

This cocktail makes use of the huge piles of herbs growing in my garden. Herbs are by far the easiest plant you can grow in a garden. So I grow huge piles of them and declare myself a master gardener (never you mind the wilted tomato plants and mold-covered squash leaves). Sort of like how I throw four ingredients together and declare myself a master liqueur maker--how you behave in one area of life is how you behave in all of them I guess.
