Thirsty Thursday!-Week 5-Alamo Splash

Welcome to Thirsty Thursday! This week was the "Alamo Splash".

  • 1.5 oz. Tequila 
  • 1.5 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 1 oz Orange Juice
  • A dash of Sprite or lemon-lime soda

Okay here's what I learned about the ingredients:
 1) Only get 100% de agave tequila, the other stuff is not as good. (It's mixed with food coloring and everclear type stuff). This information was given to me by the super helpful lady at the liquor store. 
2) I really like tequila! I just had to say it. 

Okay so the rating scale is on five different categories and a couple of open-ended questions. The categories are judged on a scale from 1-5. 1=terrible 2=bad 3=okay 4=good 5=awesome. 

We have some new judges! Everyone, meet Brandon and Kaitlin. They are our "married couple friends" even though we knew them before they were married. :)
