So grab your Collins glass, put on some sunnies, and unfold that lawn chair!
How Do You Make a Spiked Strawberry Palmer?
Let's get mixin'!
Step 1: Secure Summer Vibes
First things first, we need to curate some summer ambiance. Put on your summer playlist, slip into some beachy attire, and find a spot with a view. Whether it's your backyard, a sunny patio, or a sandy beach, make sure you're in the right mindset to enjoy every sip.
Step 2: Get Your Ingredients In Order
Now that you're in the mood, it's time to gather our ingredients. Reach for that trusty Collins glass and fill it to the brim with ice. Remember, the more ice, the colder and more refreshing your Spiked Strawberry Palmer will be.
Step 3: Mix Up Something Delicious
Here comes the fun part! Grab your Mixly and vodka and pour 2 ounces of each into the glass. This dynamic duo will bring a flavor punch that will surprise your taste buds. The smoothness of the vodka merges flawlessly with the fruity goodness of Mixly's strawberry pomegranate mixer, creating a harmonious flavor profile.
Step 4: Add a Splash of Sunshine
Now, it's time to add a touch of summer sunshine. Pour 2 ounces of organic Arnold Palmer (we used Just Ice Tea) into your glass, allowing the lemon and tea to mingle with the other ingredients. Adjust the amount of Arnold Palmer according to your taste preferences, adding a little extra if you prefer a more tea forward flavor profile or a lower ABV cocktail!
Step 5: Don't Forget The Garnish
No cocktail is complete without a garnish. Take a fresh lemon wheel and place it on the rim of your Collins glass. The vibrant yellow hue will not only make your cocktail cute as hell, but it will also add a subtle citrus aroma to each sip.
Step 6: Say "Cheers!"
You've done it! Raise your Spiked Strawberry Palmer high, clink glasses with your friends (or yourself), and watch those condensation beads roll down your glass with every sip.
