Chico | Cocktail Party

Chico

We’ve noticed that there aren’t as many options for tequila-drinking cocktail fans as there are for those who quaff other spirits, so we were thrilled to find this recipe in an issue of Saveur – sadly, it doesn’t seem to have much in the way of history or pedigree.

It’s a uniquely tasty drink, with blackberry liqueur providing a gorgeous ruby hue and fruity flavor, set off with lemon and fizzy water. Given the name, Topo Chico is a natural choice – but any sparkling water is good, and even a lightly-flavored sparkling water (like lemon La Croix or blackberry Bubly or Spindrift) will be excellent.

Instructions

Build up all the ingredients in a glass with ice, and top with sparkling water. This drink works equally well as a short or tall drink – just add more or less ice and sparkling water.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
