Mighty Thirst: Tangelo Cooler

My intent was to make this taste like a 50-50 bar, and? Nailed it. Here’s how you achieve the effect.


– Juice of one Tangelo (or orange)
– 1/2 shot Amaretto
– 1/2 shot Cointreau
– 1 shot vodka

Put a few ice cubes in your glass, add the booze, and squeeze in the juice of a Tangelo. Stir until the drink is chilled, sip, and try not to drink the rest in a single gulp. Seriously, maybe have a glass of water first.

Here’s to the water warming up, the light through the trees, and the guy at the fruit stand who always makes sure you get a good watermelon.

  1. Tangelos are weird? damn. Being a native, I guess I don’t know weird when I see it here. Now I want to know what areas have unusual fruit that natives don’t know is weird. Hidden treasures right under our nose.
