3 Cool Ways To Get Your Drink On This Summer

Cool down while getting turnt up.

Tequila Sunrise Pops
▪ 2 cups pineapple juice
▪ 1 lb, fresh pineapple, peeled and pureed
▪ 3/4 cup tequila
▪ 1/4 cup grenadine
1. Combine and stir pineapple juice, pureed pineapple and tequila. Fill popsicle wells 3/4 way up with pineapple mixture. Pour 1 teaspoon of grenadine into each well.
2. **NOTES** (1) The recipe makes a total of 32 oz. The amount of popsicles it yields will vary on the mold used. The mold used in the photo yields sixteen 3oz popsicles. (2) If your popsicle mold does not have a top, cover the top with foil and outline each well with your fingers. Cut a tiny slit in the middle of each well and insert popsicle stick.

Frozen Sangria
Serves: 4

• 1 ½ cup red wine (I used Cabernet)
• 1 ½ oz dark rum
• ¼ cup orange juice
• 3 rings of slice pineapple, canned is fine
• 1 peach, pitted and skin removed
• 2 tbsp sugar
• ⅛ tsp cinnamon
• Ice

1. Combine wine, rum, orange juice, cinnamon, and sugar in a pitcher and stir to combine. Add fruit.
2. Dump pitcher contents into blender. Blend to puree fruit.
3. Unless you have a really big blender you will probably need to pour half the mixture back into the pitcher and work in batches.
4. With half of the sangria mixture in the blender add about 2 cups of ice and blend. Add more ice if necessary.
5. Pour in glasses and garnish with lime wedge.

Billy Leighton | Head Blender for Jameson Whiskey

With almost a decade of experience as Master Blender behind him, Billy’s precision can be traced back to his first role, as a trainee accountant at Irish Distillers’ Old Bush Mill Distillery. When given the opportunity to move into production, Billy went from calculating VAT to the Vatting House, where he prepared the whiskey for bottling.

“You don’t set out to become a whiskey blender from day one,” says Billy. "What helped was the experience I gathered with my whiskey production, but perhaps most specifically, from the blending point of view, the intimate knowledge of my stocks proved most valuable.”
