Making Dallas Even Better

The Perfect Dallas Summer Drink

Last week I hit the Dallas Farmers Market and picked up so much fruit I almost didn’t know what to do with it. After making blueberry and peach ice cream for the kids, I decided to use some of the leftovers for the adults. First, I squeezed a couple of fresh lemons into a glass, added a teaspoon-ish of sugar, an ounce-ish of Dr. Blueberry juice and a couple of fresh berries, and topped it with Tito’s Vodka and club soda. (I found the Dr. Blueberry Juice next to J.T. Lemley in Shed One.) Worked for me.

    That sounds tasty!

    I had plenty of blueberries left over from my trip to the Dallas Farmers Market on the 4th, and was tired of sweets and smoothies, so I made a blueberry salsa! It was very good!

    Tito’s is really good for teh summery drinks! from their site I found this one that has been my non-beer summer staple:

    1 1/2 oz Titos
    1/2 oz Triple Sec/orange Liquer
    1/2 fresh lime squeezed
    a dash or two of angustura bitters
    top off with soda (or ginger ale for a bit more sweetness)
