Drink of the Day: Amaretto Cooler

April 26, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Since it’s Sunday, and we are getting close to having the weather in the Midwest to enjoy a good barbecue, I felt that today would be a good day to show you a cocktail that you can enjoy while cooking up some fine cuisine on the grill.

Amaretto is a nice addition to your beverage on a kick back and relax kind of day.  A soothing addition to any drink.  Add some vanilla vodka and cola and you can guarantee your mindset will be to do just that.  Just be sure to find enough energy to take the cover off the grill and cook up some burgers and dogs for your friends and family.

We are less than a week away from May.  The leaves in my area are finally showing up on the trees and the birds are singing that springtime tune.  Winter is finally a memory as we get are yards and homes prepared for the coming seasons.  I can’t think of a better way than to enjoy a relaxing beverage after spending time in the yard.

Enjoy your Sunday while giving your taste buds something to get excited about.  Cheers!
