The days are long and hot.
And as the sun begins to set, you are looking for something to help you make it through the night.
You need to chill and you need something to help you cool down.
Let me recommend a concoction I came up with on the eve of the Fourth of July.
Now I am not suggesting I invented this alcoholic beverage (that can be made prohibition style) but settle in and let me mix you up a Bloogave.
2 Shots Vodka
1 Lemon quartered
1 Lime quartered
1 Mandarin Orange thinly sliced
1 Bottle Perrier
2 Shots Blue Agave Nectar
Infuse vodka with lemon. Mix lime using a muddler in a tall glass. Pour lime mixture over infused vodka and muddle mixture. Add Blue Agave Nectar and stir. Fill two 8 ounce glasses with ice. Pour half of vodka – fruit mixture over ice in each glass. Fill each glass with 1/2 Bottle of Perrier. Stir. Now, just muddle through summer.
