It has been unseasonably gorgeous and warm here in the Seattle area, which has me summer party planning! When Keurig
reached out to see if I was interested in checking out the KEURIG® KOLD™, visions of creating boozy floats, adult twists on classic soda floats, started dancing in my head. The KEURIG® KOLD™ makes all your favorite cold drinks at home (perfectly carbonated without a CO2 canister) from craft sodas to iced teas and my favorite, drink mixers from margaritas to mojitos.
So whether it is me time (yeah, I need a cocktail or two with middle and high school boys) or entertaining a crowd, having beverages on tap is always a plus. Even better, you don't need ice if you don’t want (or forget to get more) since the drink flows out ice cold!
So I put it to the test to whip up 3 boozy float recipes guaranteed to keep you cool this summer with the KEURIG® KOLD™ Rita’s & Tina’s Strawberry Margarita, Union Street Lounge Mojito and Union Street Lounge Moscow Mule.
Mango Strawberry Margarita Float (serves 1)
Rita’s & Tina’s Strawberry Margarita pod
salt for rimming
fresh strawberries and mangoes for garnish
2 oz vodka
Rim your glass with salt, them make a strawberry margarita as directed with your KEURIG® KOLD™. Add vodka and a large scoop of mango sorbet, then garnish with strawberry and mango slices.
Lemon Mojito Float (serves 1)
Union Street Lounge Mojito pod
lemon slices and mint for garnish
2 oz white rum
Make a mojito as directed with your KEURIG® KOLD™. Add rum and a large scoop of lemon sorbet, then garnish with lemon slices and mint
Moscow Mule Float (serves 1)
Union Street Lounge Moscow Mule pod
2 lime popsicles
lime slices and mint for garnish
2 oz vodka
Make a Moscow Mule as directed with your KEURIG® KOLD™. Add vodka and popsicles, cut into large chunks, then garnish with lime slices and mint. If you can find lime sherbet (which I couldn't find anywhere!) substitute a large scoop for the popsicles.
So easy and fun! I hope you are inspired...these boozy floats are perfect for your upcoming Cinco De Mayo party! Speaking of which, be sure and tuned for more party ideas coming your way this week.
