Some drinks prove there is never just one clear recipe for success when it comes to mixing cocktails and pleasing a person’s palate. Jack Sudimack suggested the Antifreeze drink would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day with its green melon liqueur coloring. Green melon liqueur didn’t ring a bell with me regarding the Antifreeze drink, so I took a look around at variations. This is where finding out what other people are suggesting and drinking is a terrific idea. Everyone learns something new; even me! Thanks Jack!
The Antifreeze recipe works as a shot, on the rocks drink or tall drink depending upon your preference. It’s also good for anytime sipping even if it is green.
