Our friend Stephanie sent us this recipe after she attended the demo Brian hosted last Friday at Provisions. If you haven’t been to this relatively new store on Crafts Ave. in downtown Northampton, you are in for a treat! We think Stephanie’s cocktail is just perfect for celebrating the beginning of Spring, how ’bout you?
Spicy Limeade Cocktail
- 2 oz of vodka (I used Absolute)
- 1 oz of Fire Cider
- 5 oz of limeade (I used Simply Limeade brand. If you’re really motivated you could make your own by creating a simple syrup, then adding it once cooled to fresh-squeezed lime juice.)
Combine all ingredients, shake or stir, and serve on the rocks. Add a sprig of fresh cilantro if you like.
Note: I really didn’t measure–I just made it to taste. But I would say this is probably a good starting point.
- For a refreshing drink, anytime, just omit the vodka and add a few ounces of soda water instead.
- Substitute 2 oz of your favorite tequila in place of the vodka.
