Anti-Freeze Shots!

This weeks DOTW = Anti-Freeze!

In Madison WI this week it’s been as high as 61 degrees and lows in the 20’s; but there’s no such thing as climate change…

Anti-Freeze Shots; for two (2) shots grab:

* 2-tall shot glasses and rim with margarita salt (or, skip this step if you like)
* .75 oz. Blanco Tequila
* 1.0 oz. Apple Vodka
* .25 oz. Blue Curacao
* .25 oz. Sweetened Lime Juice
* Ginger Ale (optional)

In a Boston shaker with a scoop of ice add the top four (4) ingredients and SHAKE.  Strain into the shot glasses and, if you need training wheels (meaning the shot is stronger than you like) add a splash of ginger ale on top.

Please click the photo for the Video & subscribe to my channel and blog and comment on how you like the shot.
Enjoy! Salud! Cheers!
