Tequila days are waiting; make a cocktail that will liven up any gathering. A ‘Keoki Coffee’ is strong and fierce. It’s made with 1 oz. tequila, 1 tsp. sugar, and coffee. Add the tequila and sugar to a footed mug, fill with coffee, and then stir well. For a fruity freshness, try ‘La Bomba;’ it’s made with 1.5 oz. tequila, ½ Cointreau, 1.5 oz. pineapple juice, 1.5 oz. orange juice, and a splash of Grenadine. Shake it all together well with ice and then strain into a cocktail glass. Have a pretty and wild drink to excite your palate; a ‘Long Beach Ice Tea’ is fun and tasty. It’s made with ½ oz. vodka, ½ oz. gin, ½ oz. rum, ½ oz. tequila, ½ oz. Triple Sec, ½ oz. Sweet & Sour, 1 oz. cranberry juice, and 7-Up. Pour all of the ingredients into a Collins glass with ice, stir, and then garnish with a cherry and cute mini umbrella.
