Drink of the week: Iowa Sunset

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

It’s the beginning of July, and people across the country are celebrating this holiday weekend on a beach somewhere. For those of us who aren’t lucky enough to be watching the sunset on sand, I give you the Sunset in Iowa. It’s sweet, tangy, and will give you a taste of the tropics.

EXPERIENCE: Squeeze two slices of lime and two slices of orange into a glass. Dump the rinds in, and add ice. Poor equal parts cranberry juice and grapefruit juice to the mix. Finally, add a shot of gold tequila for that extra punch. Grab a knife or spoon and give it a mix, and it’s ready to enjoy.

ADVICE: If you can’t stomach the taste of tequila, swap it out for a dash of vodka. If you’re really feeling Iowa’s July heat, blend the ice, juice, and tequila into an icy mix. Also, the more the merrier. This is a great drink to share with friends.
