TODDI LEMON VODKA
IYKYK — if you don’t, a chancla is Spanish for “sandal” or “flip-flop.” This drink takes you back to when your mom would pull off her chancla and swat you if you were acting up. Allison and I received lots of La Chancla as kids. Our Toddi La Chancla will provide a different kind of butt-whoopin’. You may (or may not) want to share La Chancla with a friend. Drink up, y’all!
4 oz Toddi Lemon Lime Vodka
2 oz strong brewed hibiscus tea
1 oz Cointreau
juice of 1 fresh lemon (~1 oz)
juice of 1 fresh lime (~1 oz)
1/4 oz agave nectar (adjust to your own taste)
2-4 oz sparkling water
lime wheel for garnish
Tajin seasoning for glass rim or a sugar+salt combo for a non-spicy option
Combine all ingredients (except soda) in a shaker over ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a tall glass over fresh ice. Top with sparkling water. This drink is easily “thinned” with sparkling water for a lighter Agua Fresca de Jamaica type drink that can be served in a large insulated tumbler.
