Cocktail of The Day: The Cascade Ice Cosmpolitan!

Cascade Ice Assorted Flavors

Do you like making cocktails at home? I sure do. But sometimes I am too tired to do much more than put ice in a glass, pour a shot over that and then fill the glass with juice or soda. Bar tending is often best left to professionals. But a while back, Cascade Ice sent me an assortment of their one-step cocktail mixers and flavored sparkling waters, which make home mixology so easy!

One of many great things about Cascade Ice is that it is a super low calorie mixer — most of their flavors have zero calories! Using Cascade Ice Margarita Mixer, which has just 10 calories per serving, can knock down the calorie count of a standard Lime Margarita from around 600 to just 55 calories! That is so crazy! And yet, it is true.

Cascade Ice Cosmopolitan Ingredients

Of course, my cocktail of choice is the lovely pink Cosmopolitan, and Cascade Ice makes a Cosmo in a Bottle that only needs the addition of your favorite Vodka to make the magic happen! Above, you will see all of the ingredients and tools needed to make a refreshing, delicious and perfectly mixed Cosmo at home using Cascade Ice.

Prepared Cosmo

Other than the absence of a lemon slice — which I did not have in my home at the time — to add a dash of tartness and of course as a garnish, this drink is perfect! Of course, the Pink Palm Tree Cocktail Stirrer didn’t hurt!

If you follow any kid of restrictive diet, it is helpful and encouraging to know that all flavors of Cascade Ice are gluten free, sugar-free, sodium free, caffeine-free and have zero carbs. Visit Cascade Ice Water Dot Com for recipes and to find out where to purchase their products in your area!

Embody The Essence of Your Favorite Cocktail With Demeter Fragrance Library!


“I Smell Sex and Candy Here”

There are Three Golden Rules with regard to Sex on the Beach:

1. Pick a position and stick to it: Too much switching and swapping results in two bodies entirely coated in beach sand.
2. Bring a towel or blanket: Sand in your underwear is both uncomfortable and hard to explain.
3. Proceed with caution: that stretch of golden sand is always less secluded than you think.

Of course, you don’t need to pay these rules any mind if you’ve simply chosen to spray your skin lightly with Demeter Fragrance Library’s Sex On The Beach cologne spray – an inviting combination of Vodka, unsweetened Pineapple Juice, a touch of Raspberry liquor, a hint of Melon liquor and a splash of Cranberry that’s intoxicating on an entirely new level!

Happy National Margarita Day!

 

February 22nd is National Margarita Day, in case no one hipped you to that fact. Also, did you have any idea that the Margarita is the Number 1 cocktail drink in the US? I sure didn’t, as I am a Martini gal, myself. Still, I am not adverse to the occasional frozen fruit margarita (peach or mango being my favorite varieties) when the occasion presents itself. The recipe below might be a fun one to try out while relaxing at home this evening, and you don’t even need a blender! Ole!

Grapefruit Margarita
Total prep time: 10 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

Wedge of lime

2 teaspoons coarse margarita salt

14 ounces ruby red grapefruit juice, with pulp (about 3 medium grapefruits)

1 ounce lime juice

5 ounces reposado tequila

2 ounces triple sec

4 slices grapefruit or twists

1. Run a lime wedge halfway around the rims of four margarita glasses and dip into salt. Set aside.

2. Combine 7 ounces grapefruit juice, one-half ounce lime juice, 2 1/2 ounces tequila and 1 ounce triple sec in a cocktail shaker. Shake over ice until chilled. Strain into two ice-filled, salt-rimmed margarita glasses.
