Like the original, our julep features bourbon infused with mint. But this drink's signature sweetness is tempered by the tartness of blackberries, which also tint it a gorgeous shade of purple. Another twist: Our cocktail is blended with -- rather than served over -- ice, creating a slushy texture.
A good margarita depends on the quality
of its ingredients; always use the best tequila
you can find. You'll get excellent results using
a citrus reamer, a small, fluted cylindrical
wooden tool, to extract every last drop of juice
from the limes.
These icy bloody Marys are a refreshing summer cocktail. To make yellow and orange Marys, use a juice extractor to remove juice from orange and yellow tomatoes; omit bottled juice, reduce the amount of Worcestershire sauce to one teaspoon, and use more of the same tomatoes for freezing. For best results, freeze the tomato chunks overnight in a sealed container.
