The Fresca Experiment

I’m not usually a fan of citrusy things, but while we were in Mexico I decided on a whim to have a Fresca with my ceviche. I was surprised by how much I liked it. When we got home we bought a 2-liter bottle of Fresca and have had it sitting in the cabinet ever since. I decided that it was time to use it, so tonight we decided to do a bit of an experiment with Fresca, pineapple juice and booze.

I looked up some recipes, but most called for orange juice, and I don’t care for orange juice. We had pineapple juice on hand so I decided to just use that. We made 3 drinks, each with  2 parts Fresca, 1 part pineapple juice and 1 part either rum, tequila, or vodka. Because those were the main ingredients I found recommended.

Drinks
We just did small drinks since we both have to work tomorrow.

All of them were very good. Les’s favorite was the tequila, it tasted kind of like a grapefruit margarita. My favorite was the rum, but I’ve always been a rum girl, I thought it let the flavors of the soda and the juice through more than the flavor of the alcohol. The vodka one was good, but I think it would be better with a citrus flavored vodka because it was a bit strong even though we used the same amount in all of them.

I think we will continue to experiment, and also that we will start having Fresca on hand from now on. What better way could there be to spend a Sunday night?
