I am officially on my new host. Seduction is now on its own private server instead of shared hosting. This was the first week of the new hosting and I can see a huge difference. The speed alone is incredible.
That was a nice surprise! It was nice waking up to see this sudden surge. Then I saw it was because they featured this macaroni salad recipe.
Drinks To Relax
I work hard. Sometimes I need drinks to relax with. I admit cocktail recipes make the perfect drinks to relax with.
So how did this sunrise cocktail come about? Well, I was sent some samples of a tequila, Codigo 1530 for recipe development. You know me I love creating cocktail recipes.
Plus I love just making recipes with alcohol. So I love it when a PR company sends me samples so I can play around with for a recipe. Like I said, I like drinks to relax with.
Easy Drinks With Tequila
Anyway, one of the samples was this wonderful Rosa tequila. To quote the Codigo 1530 website about this Rosa:
Código 1530 Rosa begins with the purity of our Blanco, then rested for 1 month in an uncharred Napa Cabernet French White Oak barrels. The result is a refined spirit with a natural color as beautiful as its taste. Our Rosa has rested just long enough in our fine cabernet barrels to enrich the natural agave juice, yet not too long to prevent overpowering its delicate floral notes.
This sounds like it would be perfect to make easy drinks with tequila! The flavor of this tequila is amzing.
Tequila Sunrise Cocktail
Some type of tropical tequila sunrise cocktail recipe came to mind. I had made some fresh strawberry sorbet in the freezer. Pineapple juice was in the fridge, strawberry tequila drink was born.
Red Skies At Night Sailors Delight
The sunset that night was beautiful here in Cleveland. So I mixed up this sunrise cocktail, I thought it looked like that beautiful sunset in a glass. That was when the sailors delight quote: “Red Sky In The Morning, Sailors, Take Warning. Red Skies At Night, Sailor’s Delight.” Came into my mind.
There was no other title that could fit this strawberry cocktail recipe other than that, Sailor’s Delight. This strawberry tequila sunrise not only great to relax with, but tastes so wonderful. So cheers to this sunrise cocktail.
Sailor's Delight is an easy cocktail that is based on the old saying: "Red Sky In The Morning, Sailors, Take Warning. Red Skies At Night, Sailor's Delight.
