Hey Yall! It’s been a while since I served you up a good acholic beverage. The past couple of weeks has brought several new visitors to the site to check out The Southern Porch Sipper, which was the first cocktail I featured on the site back in I believe June of 2014. The SMIRNOFF® SOURS bottle caught my eye as I was making my rounds through the spirits section of the Wine and Spirits store and I had to bring it home. I love sweet and sour candy and so I figured I could an amazing cocktail version, and thus Pucker Up was born.
Pucker Up is one of those drinks that hits you hard at first with a tangy sour punch but then softens to a sweet tasting enjoyable cocktail. It almost reminds me of a fruit n sour jolly rancher. The SMIRNOFF® SOURS come in three flavors. For this recipe, I decided to use Fruit Punch as I wanted to create a drink that had a tropical feel. I mean hey, we’re dealing with snow and negative temperatures here! Another great thing about the SMIRNOFF® SOURS is that you can drink them on their own as a straight shot! So what are you waiting for Pucker up! Oh, I might want to mention that this is one of those drinks that sneak up on you because it’s so good. As always when drinking please drink responsibly.
