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.

Ingredients

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
