|Behold! The Crocktail!|
Add in a record outbreak of the flu, and that means tonight is a great night for ordering in a pizza, checking out the 'ole pay-per-view and preparing something warm and soothing for the soul. We are talking about getting crocked.
Look in your kitchen cupboards right now. Chances are there's an old Crock-Pot in the back. It's probably a birthday/graduation/wedding/housewarming gift from your Aunt Mildred. You might have made chili or cheese dip in it once or twice and relegated it to the back of a closet. We've got a brand new use for that baby -- the Crocktail!
Milagros tequila brand ambassadors Jamie Salas and Gaston Martinez have come up with three warm cocktails that can be made in a Crock-Pot. Salas told Short Order that he loves these drinks because they're all easy to make. "Essentially, you put most of the ingredients into the Crock-Pot or Saucepan, heat, and serve."
The drinks are soothing, delicious, and perfect to warm you up on a chilly evening.
We made the Milagro Hot Cider, which filled the entire house with the scents of apples and spices. Each recipe calls for Milagro tequila but would probably work just as well with a favorite rum.
Best of all? Since Crock-Pots are portable, you can make a batch and take it over to a friends house. Beats a pot of chicken soup any day!
