So while browsing the net I’ve come across a few pictures of what appears to be some new kind ofCorona. It’s in the regular Corona bottle, but instead of a yellowish hue it has more of a red one. I of course assumed that Corona was introducing some new kind of beer, but after doing a little research I found out that that’s not the case. It’s called the “Candy Corona” and it’s a regular bottle of Corona but with a splash of grenadine and vodka added to it. Apparently it’s the “new new.” I gotta be honest with you guys though, I’m sure I’ll give this a shot just to see what’s it’s about but it sounds pretty awful if you ask me.
Just the thought of Corona and grenadine is making my stomach do flips. Who came up with that? And to be honest I might feel a tad embarrassed asking a bartender to make a “Candy Corona.” I just pray that they know what it is and that I don’t have to explain to them that I want a bottle of Corona with a shot of vodka and grenadine it. That might just warrant an immediate call to AA. But I shall man up for the masses and give this very unique drink a try. Check for a review on here some time next week. And for those eager to try the “Candy Corona” check out the recipe below.
1 shot vodka
1 tbsp grenadine
1 bottle of Corona
A slice of lime
Drink your bottle of Corona a little bit past the neck. Add the shot of vodka and grenadine. Tightly cover the top of your bottle and shake to mix ingredients. Add a slice of lime.

I don’t even know how I came across this recipe on eHow.com, but I must say that you really have to be one lushworthy individual to think to combine vodka and gummy bears. But hey I’m not complaining. This is one recipe that will without a doubt be added to my growing Rolodex of drink and alcohol related recipes.
Step 1: Buy a pound of gummy bears and put them in a tall glass or mug.
Step 2: Pour vodka into the glass of gummy bears until it comes to the top of the gummy bears.
Step 3: Cover the mug with plastic wrap and put the mug in the fridge for about five days. Don’t get afraid after two days or so when there is a lot of sugary goo that is some remnants of the sugar from the gummy bears mixing with some of the remaining vodka. This will go away after the four days of soaking in the fridge, and all that will be left will be giant soaked vodka gummy bears.
It’s easy for a holiday like National Tequila Day to slip your mind when you live in a state where you can’t purchase alcohol from a liquor or grocery store on Sunday’s. And since National Tequila Day happened to fall on a Sunday this year I completely forgot about this lushworthy holiday. But I’m only one day late so I figure I can still celebrate a bit. And feel free to celebrate with me by mixing up one or more of these tequila-based drink recipes from Sauza Tequila.

Quite frankly, there usually aren’t many drink recipes for the cream liqueurs on the market. When it comes to cream liqueurs you usually throw in a few ice cubes, stir it up a bit, and call it a day.

And if you don’t have a serious sweet tooth you may want to pass on these recipes.

As far as I know this particular recipe doesn’t have a name and I don’t see why anything so delicious should go nameless. It’s just unfair. So make sure you refer to this drink as the “El Cuervo Fresco” if you ever want to order it at the bar. I’m so glad I was able to come across this cocktail while at an event because I would have never thought to combine tequila and lemonade. It’s almost similar to a margarita but much tastier in my opinion. And if you’re a fan of margaritas, but hate the bitter taste then you are going to absolutely love this drink. It’s not bitter at all and the Jose Cuervo Platino really makes for a smooth drink.
8fl oz. Jose Cuervo Platino
2½ pints lemonade
2 lemons (sliced thin)
Mix Jose Cuervo Platino, lemonade, and sliced lemons in a large jug. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve then pour into six short tumblers of ice.
