Toby Keith’s Swamp Water with a Twist!

I stumbled upon this drink by Toby Keith on Pinterest that had been originally pinned by GAC. It is for his drink Swamp Water. Anyone who has ever heard of this drink knows that it is a particularly dangerous due to 5 out of 8 ounces of the liquid in it being of the alcohol variety! I wanted something special to kick off Chicago Bears Preseason Football and this drink was it. Now, the original drink calls for Mezcal which I am not a fan of, but I swapped that out for tequila which I am a fan of! It worked fine. The drink had a tiny bit of a melon margarita flare to it. The thing with this drink though is that COLDNESS IS KEY! I store ingredients in the freezer prior to making and return them to the freezer if there is a second round! Another thing…grab a couple of Mason jars..they really add to the essence of the drink. So, here we go!:Ingredients:1.25 oz Blanco Tequila
2.5 oz Pucker Apple
.75 oz Simple Syrup
1 oz Midori Melon Liquor
Sweet and Sour Mix

Directions:

1) In a standard sized shaker, fill with ice and add first 4 ingredients. Shake for 60 seconds and pour into a very chilled mason jar. Mine normally have a layer of frost on them.

2) Add more ice and fill to rim with Sweet and Sour Mix. Garnish with lime slices and cherries.

3) Be really careful. These things are AWESOME, but they are one of those drinks that sneak up and nip in the rear end!

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
