Tailgate Friday: Peach Mango Vol-garita

Happy Friday! Like I could get more than two weeks into Tailgate Friday and not introduce a new cocktail. In fact, it’s a wonder I made it this long…

As it is still hot hot hot in K-town, an icy (and orange) drink seemed perfectly appropriate to sip while watching my Vols beat Oregon. On the flip side, the tequila, cleverly hidden behind a curtain of fresh mango and sweet peach, will hopefully aid in numbing my pain as I watch Tennessee lose their first game (hey, I’m optimistic not delusional).

In all seriousness though, you will have a difficult time reminding yourself that there is a decent amount of booze in this drink as it tastes like a refreshing smoothie. So sip with caution my friends, or you’ll get clobbered by the evil tequila monster.

Ok, Less life advice, more drinking.
