Tired of the same old poolside cocktails this summer? We know we are.
Sure, we love a piña colada, margarita or freshly pressed watermelon-cucumber-mint vodka spritzer with dewberry foam as much as the next gay, but sometimes we crave something different. Unexpected. Caramel.
Introducing Lovoka, a knock-your-socks-off-in-a-good-way 60-proof caramel liqueur crafted in South Africa and now available in the United States.
The delectable spirit is simply magnificent on the rocks or as a chilled shot (the aluminum bottle makes it chill faster and stay cold longer).
But we’ve found an even better way to enjoy it: The Lovoka Aloha (recipe below). It’s the ideal combination of tropical summer flavors blended with the sophistication and flavor depth of caramel. It tastes a lot like pineapple upside-down cake, but even richer. And far more refreshing.
It’s even great in iced coffee if you need a little pick-me-up and don’t want anyone to know you’re boozin’.
Not that we’ve ever been drunk on the job.
2 oz Lovoka
2 oz Pineapple Juice
1 oz Club Soda
Shake Lovoka and pineapple juice over ice. Add club soda and garnish with pineapple or a cherry.
