I must admit, I'm a little late to this game, so if you've already experienced the joys of a "Cosmo In a Bucket", please forgive me. But for those interested in an easy, fun, and festive summer cocktail, I'd like to recommend a delightful little concoction you buy at the store and create in your icebox.
My mother introduced me to this concept a few weeks ago. At first glance, I was not impressed. "You've got to be kidding, you want me to serve drinks out of that thing?" I think were my exact words. But I should know by now to always trust my mother. "Just try it" she said "It's fun!" I had nothing to lose, so I dumped the vodka into the bucket, stirred, and threw it in the freezer. The next night we had a festive frosty fiesta!
These cocktail mixers are sold in buckets in a variety of flavors including; strawberry daiquiri, mango daiquiri, margarita, strawberry margarita, cosmopolitan, mojito, and pina colada. They provide the mix, you provide the alcohol. The mixture eventually freezes into a sorbet-like consistency which you scoop from the bucket right into your glass. Great for parties, the beach, the boat, or just your own backyard!
So tell me, what's your favorite summer drink?
