Sailor's Delight Title


Drink To Relax

I work hard. Sometimes I need a drink to relax with. I admit good fruity alcoholic drinks make a perfect drink to relax with.


Fruity Alcoholic Drinks

Being a typical woman, I like fruity alcoholic drinks. So when it came to making this sailors delight, I went the fruity alcoholic drinks route!

Codigo Tequila

So how did this sunrise cocktail come about? Well, I was sent some samples of Codigo tequila for recipe development. You know me I love creating cocktail recipes. So I played a bit with the Codigo tequila and came up with the delight drink!

Cooking Tip:

Easy Drinks With Tequila

Anyway, one of the samples from Codigo tequila 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 Sky 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 Sky At Night, Sailor’s Delight.” Came into my mind.
