Woo Woo...

After the Boulder Jewish Festival yesterday we had an impromptu BBQ with some fellow Jews. And what is one thing that is necessary at any BBQ, regardless if you are Jewish or not is alcohol. Well, with Colorado’s blue laws and me not liking to keep surplus alcohol in the house, we were in a bit of a pickle. Looking in the liquor cupboard all I found was soy nuts, pickles, and snack packs – not liquor- some brandy, minuet amounts of old margarita mix, some tequila and grenadine. So, I did what any computer nerd woman would do and googled tequila and grenadine and found something called a Woo Woo. It was super yummy!

As I can never follow directions precisely here is my recipe for a Woo Woo.

To make 1 pitcher (2 quart size-be prepared to make more)
3 cups clear soda (Sierra mist free)
3 cups cranberry juice cocktail (Kirkland)
1/3 cup grenadine syrup (Rose’s)
1/3 cup tequila (Cazadores Reposado 100% de agave)
Ice to fill remaining pitcher room.

I served it in 6 oz. juice cups, which were refilled many times. And received comments from, “it tastes like Kool-aid” to “it is not to sweet, I like it” to “the cranberry juice makes it good for you!!” Overall, I would say it was a hit!
