This is my final recipe in the 5-part series of summertime cocktails I created for Free People. It has been such a delight creating all of these fun and unique drinks that are equally as delicious without any alcohol. It has also been a fun creative challenge to use ingredients differently than my usual cooking and baking. And of course as with all of my recipes, all of the mocktails that I shared are without any mixes, refined sugar or other processed ingredients, celebrating what is in season now, whenever possible! I hope all of you have enjoyed the drinks as much as I have enjoyed making them.
For this final drink I collaborated with my good friend, Brian Kruglak, for a unique mocktail to end things in style. This drink is a unique blend of so many of my favorite flavors, chipotle, ginger, cucumber, lime and if you are going for a spirited version, chipotle infused blanco tequila. It is refreshing with a little surprise and smoky kick, it really cannot get much better than that.
