#DOTW: Boom Shaka Laka

I’m not even gonna pretend. I picked this cocktail for this Drink Of The Week simply because of it’s name. Of course I tried it, and it was delicious, but with a name like that I couldn’t resist. Despite all of the Fall fans getting excited, it’s still summer, and it’s still hot, so I’m still posting summer cocktails! This one more than qualifies!



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Absolut Citron (or lemon vodka of your choice)
  • 1 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 1/2 oz sour mix
  • splash of lemonade
  • splash of cranberry juice
  • splash of Mountain Dew

Assembly is simple! Combine all ingredients and pour over ice in a highball glass!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
