The Cocktail at the End of the Rainbow

Today I bring to you a multipurpose libation.

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I am sure many of you are looking for a good green cocktail.  Usually if an alcoholic drink is green it contains one of two things: green creme de menthe, or melon liquor.  I have nothing against either flavor, but if you are looking for something a little different you have come to the right place!

Remember Little Hugs?  Tiny barrels of sugar laden “fruit drink”…ahhh, childhood.  Well, the lemon-lime flavor is the perfect shade of green to make a lovely St. Patrick’s day drink while steering clear of the usual suspects.  I mixed it up with Pinnacle Whipped Vodka and some Sierra Mist.  Before I tried a sip, I named it the Whipped Leprechaun.

After I tried a sip, I realized I had something on my hands that transcended March 17th.  This thing tasted like one of those popsicles that I spent my summers slurping down as a kid. You know, the ones with the cream inside?   I renamed it the Whipped Popsicle.  Don’t want to box myself in you know.

This drink is perfect to celebrate St. Patty’s Day with or to sip by the pool come summertime, and I know from all the Facebook and Pinterest posts I’ve been seeing lately that a bunch of you are already thinking summer.

Whipped Popsicle

2 oz Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
Lemon-lime Little Hugs drink
Lemon-lime soda of your choice

Add vodka to glass.  Fill 3/4 of the glass with the lemon-lime Little Hugs drink, and then top off with lemon-lime soda.  Stir, add ice, consume (unless you are under 21 – in that case just go eat a popsicle and come back when you’re old enough!)
