Entertaining outdoors is one of the best parts of summer. The warm breeze, the cool nights, who doesn't love a good backyard dinner party? But nothing kills the vibe more than those pesky insects buzzing around your ears and biting your freaking ankles.
Flavored vodka hasn't made an appearance in my bar cart since the good ol' college days, but all that changed when I discovered the most fantastic grapefruit infused vodka. So, naturally, I've been mixing it in with everything I have in my refrigerator - namely Arizona Pomegranate Ice Tea. Here is my latest & greatest cocktail mixture - the Desert Sunrise.
THE ARIZONA RUBY
1. Arizona Ice Tea
2. Absolut Ruby Red Vodka
3. Club Soda
1. Place a couple of ice cubes into a glass
2. Pour a shot (or more) of Absolut Ruby Red in
3. Fill 2/3rds of Arizona Ice Tea into glass
4. Top of with club soda
