Greetings and salutations pool people, lake friends, and ocean lovers. Our pool has officially opened and thus if you need me, you know where to find me. 😀
Our team has grown by two this week as we took on a new film intern and editor, who brought fresh perspective to the amount of content we’ll be creating for you, and also requested (as many of you have) that we do more drink recipes and alcohol education.
Therefore, we’ve decided to begin adding mini episodes to YouTube! We’ll be releasing Tutorial Tuesday videos consisting of tutorials relevant for the season, and Sippin’ Saturdays where we’ll share creative, and cool cocktail and mocktail recipes for the whole family.
This week, inspired by our time on the water we bring to you Fizzy Fishbowls! A sparkling, tiki take on the idea of a big, strong, community cocktail.
This is best served around a table of friends or with that significant other, and take heed because they are deceptively delicious. Each fishbowl boasts over a cup of blended alcohol so remember to keep things fun by drinking responsibly. Let’s get started!
First we’re going to need some fruit.
This is for placing into the fish bowl to soak up the rum and infuse the cocktail— but you’ll find yourself nibbling on it, so pick things you like.
According to the recipe instructions below, you’ll layer the fruit and ice in the fish bowl.
Then shake up the alcohol mix and pour it in…
Finally top off the drink with fresh herbs like mint, thai basil, and lavender buds!
Finish with bamboo straws and tropical drink umbrellas. 😀
