Sex in the Snow – A snow day cocktail!

Sex in the Snow

We have been having a rough winter here in Virginia!  The kids have been out of school for 3 days and it is not even winter yet.  So to cope with the snow and ice I figured it was time for a snow day cocktail.  This snow day cocktail is a fun play on a traditional piña colada.  I have removed pineapple and added sweetened coconut for a nice little bite.

Tom Collins

Tom Collins

My Father-in-law Bill is quite the mixologist and makes some mean cocktails (remember the Sangria).  So I asked if he could provide the recipe for his awesome Tom Collins to the blog.  He obliged and wrote an entire post!  So without further ado, here is Bill.

Nothing is more American than the 4th of July barbecue and with Rex around the cooking is well taken care of but the drinks are my department. I thought back to all the summer shindigs we used to have in my aunt’s backyard and the adults always started the party with their favorite summertime cocktail, the Tom Collins and no one liked them or made them better than my grandmother.
