The 3 Amigas – Delicious but Feisty Drinks!

Strip & Go Naked

This stuff has a kick and will kick you in the butt before you know it! Keep it slow ladies and gents, because before you know it you’ll be stripping…… and going….. naked…… the next morning will be full of awkward, embarrassing moments from the night before. Get ready.

1 Can Frozen Fruit Concentrate Lemonade Style (We used Raspberry Lemonade)
6 Cans Cold Beer
2 Cups Vodka (Fruity flavored is alright by us!)
Fruit it up! Raspberries, Blackberries, Strawberries, and Lime are always welcome!

Mix & Serve Over Ice!

Sex & the Sangria

This “Six Dollar Sangria” recipe is a version I worked out this summer when a desire hit for something different, refreshing and cheap.  It’s my personal opinion that sangria is kind of like chili -everyone has their own way of making it – so as long as you have all the basic ingredients (wine, brandy, some sort of sweetener, and fruit) you can adjust the recipe any way you like it!  Here’s how I like it:

  • 2 bottles red wine (Something like 2 Buck Chuck* keeps it cheap, and tastes good!)
  • 2 shots brandy
  • about 1/3 cup simple syrup
  • 1 large or 2 medium oranges sliced
  • 1 lime sliced
  • handful of blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries (whatever you like/have on hand! Frozen berries are great, too, as they help keep the sangria chilled)

Mix all the ingredients in a large pitcher, chill and enjoy!  It can also easily be doubled for a bigger gathering, like a bachelorette party!

Whoopie Juice

Okay, it’s not REALLY called whoopie juice, we made that up. It’s actually wapatui or, for short, Wop. There might be a legitimate recipe out there with measurements and proper ingredients, but that’s never how we’ve done it! This drink is a good catch-all for those liquors that you bought to make that one drink that sounded interesting but you don’t make it that often so now you have  this mostly-full bottle of mango vodka that you want to get rid of. But beware this tends to be really powerful without tasting like it. And since you’ll likely end up making several gallons worth, i would only suggest making this drink if there are going to be a lot of people consuming it with you.

Here’s how you do it:
Step one: open liquor cabinet
Step two: grab random partial bottles of alcohol. Avoid gin and whiskey whenever possible and opt for any variety of vodka, rum, or fruit flavored liqueur.
Step three: dump alcohol into very large container. In the past I’ve used a Gatorade dispenser, a wheeled cooler, and a giant blue bucket that I think is meant to hold pool toys.
Step four: add juice. Any kind of juice! Hawaiian Punch is a good go-to option. Using frozen juice concentrate with help to chill your drink.
Step five: chop up fruit, lots of fruit, (preferably some pineapple) and throw it into the vat of your concoction. The sugars in the fruit will start to ferment, making it alcoholic fruit! The longer it sits, the stronger it will get.
Step six: Serve with a ladle.

Hosts and hostesses beware, this drink will sneak up on you and your guests, so it’s probably a good idea to confiscate car keys upon arrival and have them walk a straight line before departing. After all, our motto here at OnceAMonth is “safety first!”
