So yet another month has passed us by very quickly. This month was filled with fun and friends and some very good drink choices. I’m very sad that some of the drinks I had this month aren’t easily found which means I will only be able to think about how good they were in the future.
Ciderboys Lemon Cello Hard Cider: So I’m a cider girl, as I’ve grown older it’s just what I seem to gravitate more towards. It’s crisp and fruity, and depending on what you get not overly sweet or overly filling. I think this cider is hands down my new favorite cider and I’m sad that I’ve looked around to see if I could find it anywhere to buy it and I have had no luck. It’s hint of lemon in the apple cider and it was amazing. I had it at Disney at the Food and Wine Festival so the plus is that since the festival is going on for a little while longer I can at least go back and get some in the near future.
Strawberry Basil Lemonade: Oh, my, goodness. I’ve had a non alcoholic version of this years ago in Tennessee and I remember being slightly obsessed and not happy that I couldn’t make it or find a decent recipe for it. Well in Charleston this past weekend we went to “The Rooftop bar at Vendue” and they had a strawberry basil lemonade cocktail. I was immediately sold, (as were most of the girls I was with). It did not disappoint. It’s made with Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka, House Made Basil Strawberry Lemonade, Fresh Basil Leaves. Once again I find myself wanting to find this recipe for the lemonade and making it at home. Sadly I didn’t take a photo of it because it was gone before I realized it would be making an appearance in the blog.
Key lime colada: This is basically a key lime pie in a glass. At least to me that’s what I gathered from it. It’s lime juice, a piña colada and a graham cracker rim. We got it at Rita’s Surfside Grill in Folly Beach, South Carolina. I can’t say enough good things about this. It was a tad on the sweet side so I was only able to drink one, but if my stomach could have handled more I would have gotten more. It’s that perfect cold drink on a hot day sort of drink. And that dash of lime juice to give it the tartness was unbelievably good.
By far I think this month has been my favorite month so far for new drinks. October has some big shoes to fill.
