Welcome to our summer drink series: Cocktails and Mocktails.  We look forward to sharing some of our favorite cocktails and mocktails with you!  Keep in mind  some will be more creative than others.

Without further ado, I present to you Uncle Rico: A combination of “old man gin” with a hint of tropical vacation. I can’t really take credit for it as FBIL came up with this mix and my roommate helped me name this fresh, delicious cocktail.  Oh well, that’s why friends are for right?

  • 1 shot gin
  • 2 shots coconut juice
  • 1 shot tonic water
  • juice of one lime (reserve a slice to float in your drink!)

Combine coconut juice, gin and lime juice  into your shaken full of ice.  Give it a good shake.  I suggest you dance around your kitchen a bit while you do this–it makes it taste better.  Strain into your favorite cocktail glass, add tonic and slice of lime.  Walk outside and sit on your porch and enjoy some nice conversation and people watching!



P.S. What are some of your favorite cocktails?  Maybe we will feature them in the summer drink series!
