Drink Du Jour- Nuevo Chi Chi
Yeah, yeah, I know, a Chi Chi is a vodka Pina Colada, but I hate that drink and wanted to rethink how its made. Recently, and in spite of my usual predelictions, I've been playing with vodka a lot recently. In fact, I rather like 42 Below vodka, and I've just received some interesting samples of Three Olives vodka's newest flavors (root beer, tomato, and triple espresso). I've also recently discovered coconut water, which in addition to being tasty, is incredibly healthy as well. So here is my loose interpretation of what the Chi Chi should be.
Nuevo Chi Chi
2 oz 42 Below Vodka
4 oz One Coconut Water
3 dashes Angostura Orange Bitters
Build over ice in a double rocks glass, stir to incorporate and enjoy.
