So this week I’m late by a day again, but here to bring you a very interesting mix. The Kool Aid is nothing like the name suggests. It’s not very attractive nor very tasty. While it is a decent drink, I was confused on how exactly to place the taste. The flavors don’t really meld together that well, and your left tasting each of them a little at a time. This is one of those drinks like the “watermelon” that I certainly wouldn’t serve first. Try it if you’re looking for something different, but it’s not something I can recommend very much. There are two versions of this drink found in my recipe book. The first is without the “optional” ingredients. The second is with both of them. Maybe this recipe just needs tweaking a bit. My guess is to ditch the amaretto as it’s the strangest ingredient of the set.
1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Midori
1/2 oz Amaretto
2 oz Cranberry Juice
1/2 oz Southern Comfort (Optional)
Splash of Grenadine (Optional)
Straight build in an iced tumbler.
