As far as I know this particular recipe doesn’t have a name and I don’t see why anything so delicious should go nameless. It’s just unfair. So make sure you refer to this drink as the “El Cuervo Fresco” if you ever want to order it at the bar. I’m so glad I was able to come across this cocktail while at an event because I would have never thought to combine tequila and lemonade. It’s almost similar to a margarita but much tastier in my opinion. And if you’re a fan of margaritas, but hate the bitter taste then you are going to absolutely love this drink. It’s not bitter at all and the Jose Cuervo Platino really makes for a smooth drink.

INGREDIENTS

8fl oz. Jose Cuervo Platino

2½ pints lemonade

2 lemons (sliced thin)

Ice

DIRECTIONS 

Mix Jose Cuervo Platino, lemonade, and sliced lemons in a large jug. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve then pour into six short tumblers of ice.

It’s Not Your Average Cognac – A lot of people are turned off by the strong taste of cognac and I won’t name names, but a lot of people can’t handle their cognac either. But unlike most cognac’s Courvoisier Rosé offers a much more smooth, refreshing taste. And if you’ve yet to try cognac before this would be a great starting point.

It’s Easy On The Wallet – At only $24.99 for a 750ml bottle Courvoisier Rosé really is a steal. So feel free to spend that extra dough you saved on some snackage.

Mixer? What Mixer? – Courvoisier Rosé is one of few liquors that can really be enjoyed by itself or on the rocks. With notes of blackberry, black currant, and a touch of cherry as well as vanilla, honey, and vine-peach flavors you can see why Courvoisier Rosé can easily be enjoyed sans the mixers.

Appease The Picky – I’m sure we’ve all had that moment when you found yourself feeling overwhelmed in the liquor store because you have absolutely no idea what to buy for a friends dinner/house party. Since Courvoisier Rosé is made from both Courvoisier cognac and premium French red wine grapes it really is an ideal choice. You’ve got both your wine lovers and cognac connoisseurs covered with just one product.

If you find yourself wanting to give Courvoisier Rosé a shot feel free to check out one of the recipes below. I feel like the “Pink Slipper” has my name written all over it.

Now when I think of whisky there honestly isn’t anything summery that comes to mind. When you think of summer cocktails the types of liquors that you’re reminded of are usually rums or fruit-flavored vodkas. But believe it or not there’s actually quite a few refreshing whisky cocktails that are more than perfect for beating that summertime heat. Canadian Club Whisky in particular boasts quite a few fruity drink recipes. Check out a few of their summer drink recipes below.

Every now and then you come across a drink recipe that you just know is gonna be amazing. Take for instance the extremely easy to make “Whippet.” Created by the makers of Whynatte the “Whippet” is so good that it’s said to cause pure madness in those who drink it.  Now I’m not sure about all that, but it does sound quite tasty. I wasn’t able to find a “Whippet” recipe online, but I do know that you just combine Whynatte and Pinnacle Whipped Vodka. I’m just unsure of the exact amounts so feel free to add however much you like (just don’t get too carried away folks).

2-parts Whynatte

1-part Pinnacle Whipped Vodka

DIRECTIONS

Combine both Whynatte and Pinnacle Whipped Vodka in a small glass, mix, and ice (optional).
