Summer is just about here. Are you kicking those cocktails? Maybe some margarita’s. I’ve been looking over some ideas to make a margarita and mojito series here on the blog. With plenty of bartending experience I can lead my knowledge of some fresh make drinks with delicious fruits. My first thought though is to bring you a cocktail that I made recently. Since flamingos seem to be popping up everywhere I though this would be a wonderful fit here on the blog for you the readers. Here is the Feathered Flamingo in all the flamingo craze!
Yes, I serve my cocktails with plastic cubes. Why? They photography nicely and they don’t water down your drink. Plus, they come in some of the cutest shapes. I had hoped to share some flamingo ice cubes with you but my daughter won’t share. She loves to take them in her flamingo cup of course!
We like to use mini bottles for cocktails to easily show the reader just how much we are putting into them. Gives you the idea about a shot glass or so full of easy. Kinky is a naughty fusion of super premium vodka distilled 5 times with succulent mango, blood orange liqueur and passion fruit. We pair this along with the Malibu rum which is the taste of MALIBU is sunshine in a bottle – smooth, fresh coconut flavor with a sweet finish – perfect for bringing the sun-kissed island to anytime. These two combined give you the feeling that your sitting ocean side.
The adorable flamingo stir sticks are from the Dollar Tree. I just couldn’t resist and I know they will also look too cute in some upcoming margarita’s I will be making.
It’s all about the summer pineapples, umbrella’s, and too darn cute flamingos. I think I am even going to try and sneak a plastic flamingo onto my porch 😀
