Death Of A Matador – Mocktail/Cocktail

Death Of A Matador  - Mocktail/Cocktail

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.

Death Of A Matador  - Mocktail/Cocktail

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.

To read more about this drink that Brian calls, Death of a Matador, and for the full recipe – check out my post on Free People blog. Thanks again to Free People for having me this month, look for me again next month with an all new series of recipes!

i saw this on Free People’s blog, it looks amazing! i think i’ll make this tomorrow AM! do you think i can cut up a small amount of fresh jalapeno and use instead of using chipotle pepper? (simply because i’ve got a ton of peppers in my garden!)

Crista thanks for stopping by! Yeh I think jalapeño would work, you won’t get the smokey flavor but you will definitely get the heat! Sounds delicious, let me know what you think!
