If you’re hosting a dinner party, it might be handy to know how to make a Limey Cocktail. The mix of light rum and lime liqueur is a great drink to serve pool side at at barbecue or around a dinner party table full of ethnic or spicy food. Here’s how to make a Limey Cocktail for your family and friends the next time they are headed over.
- 1 oz. light rum
- 1 oz. lime liqueur
- 1/2 oz. triple sec
- 2 tsp. lime juice
- 3 oz. crushed ice
- Champagne flute
- Lime wedge
How to make a Limey Cocktail:
- Combine the lime liqueur, light rum, triple sec, lime juice and crushed ice in the blender. Cap the blender tightly.
- Blend the drink on low speed until well mixed. Remove the blender from the base.
- Pour into a champagne flute. Garnish the Limey Cocktail with a lime wedge and serve to thirsty guests.
- Garnish using different types of fruit, such as fresh berries, in the glass
If you’re hosting a large party, it can be tough to make sure everyone always has a fresh beverage in their hand. Between the mixing and pouring and the mixing and pouring, rather than enjoying your party, you turn into a de facto bartender. In order to solve this problem, make a Limey Cocktail the signature drink of the evening. In a pitcher add 10 to 15 servings of the light rum, lime liqueur, lime juice and triple sec. Then as guests arrive simply pour that mixture into the blender, fill to the top at once with crushed ice, and blend multiple drinks.
A twist on the Limey cocktail is to substitute the light rum with vodka. The flavor profile of vodka will nicely absorb the triple sec, lime liqueur and lime juice. Tequila is another interesting twist, since the light or clear tequila will interact nicely with the lime flavor profile.
