Yesterday was the swearing in of Barack Obama for his second term as the US president (as if you didn’t already know that!), so I couldn’t resist sharing a cocktail recipe in celebration. Compliments of Polar Seltzer, “the zero calorie, zero carb, zero sugar, zero sodium and sugar-free beverage company” has created the OBAMA’RITA. The inspiration behind the drink noted below is based on the pres and his wife because they are “known to order matching margaritas and this recipe captures the first couple’s commitment to health-smart food choices and his Hawaiian origins.” Check it out:
1 part Patron Tequila
1 part Cointreau
1 part pineapple juice
1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
Pinch of sea salt
Polar Raspberry-Lime Seltzer
Fresh pineapple, garnish
Combine all of the ingredients, other than the seltzer in a cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Shake vigorously, until it shows condensation. Pour into glass. Top with Polar Seltzer, Garnish with skewered pineapple.
