Ah, Friday...what we look forward to all week! And what better way to kick off a summer weekend than with another fresh cocktail of the week?

We've teamed up with Absolut to bring you a Summer on the Rocks! You can still enter to win that trip to see Lady Gaga in Sweden!

Look for me out with the Point Crew next Friday from 4-6 p.m. at the Spirits Unlimited in Ortley Beach for bonus chances to enter and to score some Absolut swag and Point prizes!

Now, let's get to mixing up some Absolut Mandrin Punch!

Absolutdrinks.com

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz. Absolut Mandrin vodka
  • 2 oz ginger ale
  • 1.5 oz pineapple juice
  • lime wheel (to garnish)
  • lemon wheel (to garnish)

Combine all ingredients over ice in a tall glass. Garnish with fresh lemon and lime (or some candied ginger!)

Switch it up:

Use more or less vodka, soda, or juice to suit your tastes.
Use orange juice instead of pineapple for a different flavor.
Try Absolut Orient Apple (apple ginger) or Absolut Citron (lemon) instead of Mandrin.
