Mojito Mexicano – Tequila Cocktail

With all of the heat and humidity this week, I decided to concoct a light cocktail that would quench my thirst. With the help of fresh mint from the garden, the Mojito Mexicano was born. Not only is it a refreshing, fun tequila cocktail, but also it is also less than 100 calories! With only four ingredients, the Mojito Mexicano is the perfect tequila cocktail for any summer diet!

Patrón Silver is the key ingredient in this cocktail. With a less potent bite than many other types of tequila, patron silver is the perfect liquor for a summer mojito. For a sweeter drink, try the Patrón Anejo that has more of a whiskey-like quality.

The second ingredient is Izze Sparkling Clementine! This mixer is perfect and low calorie for everyone trying to work on their bikini bodies this summer! Izze Sparkling Clementine hits the spot in this tequila cocktail with its refreshing bubbles.

Mint is the ingredient that ties our whole tequila cocktail together! Perfect for a light drink, mint crisps this cocktail with all of the right flavors.

To mix this drink, add the mint leaves and ice at the same time so you almost layer the mint leaves throughout the drink. Add the Patrón Silver, and then top off with Izze Sparkling Clementine! Be sure to stir your drink, stirring will cause the mint to be crushed by the ice which will release it’s minty flavor to create your tequila cocktail! Don’t forget to add a lime to garnish your drink!

The ingredients that I used are pictured below! Feel free to comment or contact me with any additional questions, concerns, or suggestions. Remember to mix & chill over ice! Enjoy!

The Crownberry – Whiskey Cocktail

In search of a crisp and cool summer drink, I came across one so refreshing that I had to share. Perfect for a dinner party, brunch, or a hot day; the Crown-berry is a quick and easy mixed drink suitable for any taste. With only three ingredients, this whiskey cocktail took my brunch from ordinary to tasteful.

The first and most important ingredient is Crown Royal Regal Apple Whiskey. Crown Royal whiskey is very sweet and smooth, but the apple flavoring gives it a tart bite. The tart-ness is perfect for mixing to create a lively and dimensional whiskey cocktail for any occasion.

Cranberry juice is the base of the entire drink. This chilled drink uses cranberry juice as its base of taste, but also to curb the intensity of the apple whiskey. The cranberry juice perfectly compliments the apple and adds a summer tone to this whiskey cocktail.

The last ingredient I used is not entirely necessary, but added great taste and a summery vibe. I used pineapple to not only garnish the drink, but also to line the rim of the glass in pineapple juice. The fresh hint of pineapple added a sweet change-up to this sour cocktail—making it perfect for a day drink. For a more night cocktail, try adding accents of apple slices, lemons, or even limes {my favorite} to add flavor and presence to this drink.
