The Cactus Bite is June 12th Drink of the Day!!

June 12, 2014 | By | Add a Comment

Here’s a cocktail that gives you another opportunity to pull the Drambuie off the shelf other than using it in the Rusty Nail cocktail.  The Cactus Bite is an interesting combination of ingredients that fits nicely into an old fashioned glass, never staying off course from having the main ingredient, tequila, being the main focus.  Just using a slight measure of everything else to compliment this spirit is all you need to come up with a great summertime sipper.  Enhancing this very tasty spirit with a supporting cast will make you go to it even more when deciding on a cocktail of choice.

If you enjoy the flavor of tequila you will want to give this Drink of the Day a try.  Taking a little bite out of the alcohol and introducing flavors that compliment what this spirit has to offer is what you will get if you put the right measure of everything in.  Hope you find this as gratifying as I did.
