Siglocktail 10-05-2020: Margarita

October came in pretty hot in Southern California, so I’m making a refreshing margarita for this week’s SIGLERinPLACE Siglocktail!

Goodness margaritas are wonderful. Four ingredients (sometimes just three!) and truly refreshing, drinkable and fun. There are tons of my pals who “can’t drink tequila” but I’ve only met one actual human who would also resist this easy, lovely, tasty version of tequila’s classic drink.

As ever, livestream is tomorrow night and Thursday night at 6pm PST and we’ll be toasting with these yummy cocktails. Feel free to make this one (send us pics here if you do!) but as ever, you drink whatever you like best, or nothing at all, no worries!

MARGARITA RECIPE:
Ingredients:

  • 2-ounces tequila blanco
  • 1/2-ounce triple sec
  • 1-ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2-ounce agave syrup

Siglocktail 09-28-2020: the Painkiller

Here we are the end of September, with our last rum drink for the month.

This week’s Siglocktail is the Painkiller.

The Painkiller was created at a swim up bar in the British Virgin Islands called the Soggy Dollar Bar. (Since it was a swim up bar, cash was always wet!) I love this drink for it’s simplicity and scalability: a perfect mix of fruit juices that adjusts to different amounts of rum and still tastes delicious.

As ever, livestream is tomorrow night and Thursday night at 6pm PST and we’ll be toasting with these yummy cocktails. Feel free to make this one (send us pics here if you do!) but as ever, you drink whatever you like best, or nothing at all, no worries!

Ingredients:

  • 2-ounces (60 ml) Pusser’s Rum
  • 4-ounces (120 ml) pineapple juice
  • 1-ounce (30 ml) orange juice

  • Freshly grated nutmeg
