Cocktail?! Did I grab your attention yet? It’s Friday – the freakin’ weekend – and I’ve had a craving to pop a bottle of champagne all day. Weird? I think so, but maybe its the sunny weather, the blooming flowers, or the fact that I just feel like celebrating [nothing in particular].
When 4 pm rolled around, I decided I did enough work for the day [plus got a great workout in this morning] that I deserved a nice adult drink. I don’t drink often, mind you – some weeks/weekends I don’t even think about it – but there are times when having a cocktail, glass of wine, or a little bubbly sounds like a great idea. So, while I didn’t get to pop that bottle like I was thinking about this morning, I did grab a little tequila [which I always have on hand // tequila = poison of choice ♥], and whipped myself and a friend up a sweet little boozy drink.
“Sueños naranja” simply means “orange dreams” in Spanish. As soon as I tasted it, I thought this orange concoction is just . . dreamy. Although its a little different than my typical recipes, I’d highly recommend giving this unpretentious sipper a try this weekend! Or, heck, why not right now? It’s 5 o’clock somewhere. .
Sueños Naranja Cocktail
Makes 2 cocktails.
- 4 – 5 oranges [about 1 cup], freshly squeezed*
- 1/4 tbsp vanilla extract
- 4 – 6 ounces good quality tequila blanco [depending on how strong you prefer your cocktail]
Simply pour the orange juice, vanilla, and tequila in a shaker [I used a mason jar with a lid]; shake until its nicely mixed. Enjoy with some friends outside in the sunshine!
* If you don’t have the oranges/time to get freshly squeezed juice, bottled will work well also – but I always think fresh is best!!
Hope y’all have a fantastic weekend! And remember to always sip responsibly 🙂
