Seis de Mayo

I know you’re all probably thinking, come on, you’re a day late to the party. However, I am sure a lot of you were like myself and unable to fully celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this lovely holiday falling on a Monday night. Or, maybe you love Mexican food and Margaritas, but wanted to avoid the large crowds of rowdy people in sombreros shaking maracas.  Or maybe you had such a good time celebrating last night that you’re ready for round dos. Whatever the case may be, I have provided some delicious Margarita recipes that are refreshing and satisfying no matter the occasion!

Classic Margarita

  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Triple Sec
  • 2 parts Avion Tequila
  • 1 part Fresh Lime Juice

Shake & strain into a salt-rimmed rocks glass.

Maplerita

  • 2 parts Avion Reposado Tequila
  • 2 parts Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • .5 part simple syrup

Add all ingredients to shaker with ice. Strain over ice in highball glass and serve

Cheers!

Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day!

As I was catching up on exciting daily happenings, as provided by Twitter this morning, I realized that St. Patrick’s day is only 6 months away from today! As someone who is just about half Irish, I find it fully acceptable to celebrate the halfway mark to such a great holiday! Tonight after work I fully intend to open up some Jameson and mix myself up a (or maybe two) delicious whiskey cocktail(s).

First up, will be a perfect cocktail to accompany the fall weather and autumn mindset:

Apple Crumble Martini
  • 1.5 parts Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • .75 part Hiram Walker Butterscotch Schnapps
  • 1.5 parts Pressed Apple Juice
  • .5 part Lime Juice
  • 1 part Sugar Syrup
 Shake and strain.

Next up will be a fun drink from Mama Walker’s breakfast flavored liqueurs: Mama said WHAT?!

  • 2 parts Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon Liqueur
  • 1 part Jameson Irish Whiskey

Shake all ingredients in shaker with ice, strain into chilled shot glass and serve

Friday Feature Cocktail: Mama’s Barbados Holiday

Today is National Rum Day (as I’m sure you’ve seen all over the internet by now). Rather than feature a classic Daiquiri or Mojito, I want to feature a delicious and nontraditional rum drink: Mama’s Barbados Holiday! For those of you with the philosophy that bacon makes everything better, you’ll love this cocktail that takes your tropical rum drink and adds in a touch of savory bacon flavor (yes you read correctly, bacon!)

Mama’s Barbados Holiday:

  •     1 part Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon
  •     1 part Malibu Rum
  •     3 parts pineapple Juice
  •     Splash of grenadine
  •     Splash of orange juice

Mix in a shaker over ice. Serve in a shot glass.

Enjoy and Happy National Rum Day!

Friday Feature Cocktail: Watermelon Margarita

Today’s featured cocktail is inspired by the favorite fruit of summer, the watermelon. The refreshing and sweet taste of watermelon is the perfect addition to any summertime cocktail, including the summer favorite Margarita. A classic Margarita on the rocks is always a perfect choice, but once August rolls around you may be looking to switch it up, which is where I come in with the Watermelon Margarita:

Watermelon Margarita

Watermelon Margarita

  • 1 part Avion® Silver Tequila
  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Watermelon Schnapps
  • 3/4 part Hiram Walker® Triple-Sec
  • Fresh lime juice

Shake with ice. Strain into glass.

If you REALLY want to shake up your Margaritas and you’re a big fan of bacon (and it seems like most people are these days) you can also give the Maplerita a try!

  • 2 parts Reposado Tequila
  • 2 parts Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • .5 part simple syrup

Add all ingredients to shaker with ice. Strain over ice in highball glass and serve

Happy Friday & Enjoy 🙂

July 4th Sparklers!

4th of July is just around the corner, and when I think of the perfect way to spend the holiday I think of hamburgers, pasta salad, fireworks, sparklers, and of course, cocktails! It’s never too early to start planning your drink menu, and below are some festive “sparkler” cocktails to pair with your July 4th festivities!

Pink Berry Sparkler

  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 5 raspberries
  • 3 oz. Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Moscato Rose

In a mixing glass, muddle the raspberries.  Add the pineapple juice and Moscato Rose, with ice, and stir briefly.  Strain into a chilled champagne flute and top off with extra Moscato Rose. Garnish with a raspberry

Mango Peach Sparkler

  • 1.5 oz Absolut Mango
  • .5 oz Hiram Walker Peach Schnapps
  • Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Moscato Rosé

Build in a rocks glass over ice or frozen mango cubes

And why not throw in a little boozy dessert?

Mama Say Mama Sa Ma-Ma-Ma-Su-Ka
• 3 parts Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon Liqueur
• 3 scoops Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
• 3 tsp Chocolate Syrup
Put all ingredients in blender and blend with ice. Pour into highball glass for this frozen treat. Add 1 or 2 sticks of bacon for garnish.

As a disclaimer, I am NOT suggesting drinking sparklers while playing with sparklers, that could get dangerous 🙂 SPARKLERS_-_sparklers_5-9-09_white_bursting_LARGE
