Today for Thirsty Thursday we’re playing with a fun blend of coconut, mango, and vodka. Sounds like a great drink, right? Well we haven’t even got to the mixing part since Voli Vodka (they sent us this awesome vodka for inspiration) is available in so many fun flavors – Mango Coconut Fusion is one of them! I almost didn’t want to do anything since it’s already packed with so much flavor. Taking shots is just as good as mixing it in my eyes.
I did make some Jello shots using a mix of Island Pineapple and Strawberry which came out delicious. These were a few weeks ago and we’ve had some time to experiment with the Voli Vodka a little more. This week I want to present you with the Tropical Fusion, which is Voli Mango Coconut FusionVodka, pineapple juice and a few squirts of Crystal Light Mango Passionfruit. Completely delish and intoxicatingly sweet.
What I love most about this drink is the lack of an alcohol taste. The flavors work perfectly to disguise any overwhelming alcohol flavor making it the perfect girly drink. I’m able to say that since I’m a girl drink kind of gal. I don’t like being able to taste alcohol in my drinks so this one is amazeballs. Wow – that’s a real word since my spell checker didn’t correct me – yay for urban word progression?
Anyways, let’s get back to the magic at hand. Let’s gather the ingredients:
- 2 ounces of Voli Mango Coconut Fusion Vodka
- 4 ounces of Pineapple Juice
- 3 – 4 squirts of Crystal Light Mango Passion Fruit (or any other liquid flavoring agent)
- 1 oz Grenadine (optional)
Combine the vodka and juice in a tall glass and stir in the Crystal Light. You can use more drops as needed but remember it is a concentrate so a little goes a long ways. Add enough ice to fill and shake or stir to combine thoroughly. At this point you can either pour it into smaller glasses (recommended) or drink it as it is. Totally up to you and your guest (if you’re entertaining.)
Be sure to join us next week for more Thirsty Thursday and be sure to tell us what you think of the Tropical Fusion in the comments below. Cheers to a happy Halloween weekend and remember to always drink responsibly.
