3.5 shots out of 5
WOW is it late!! For the record I started tonight's blog at 11:58pm, so I just made it in time! It's a late blog tonight because we had soccer, baseball and a birthday party today, so a nice cocktail is definitely needed now!
I gave the Wild Thing 3.5 shots out of 5. I do like the fruitier, sweeter (not not too sweet) cocktails and this one isn't really that. It's still a good cocktail though. Not one I'd order again, but I'm glad I tried it. The name of the cocktail is fun too! It always interests me when I see a cocktail recipe ask for vodka AND rum. As you know I used to be a vodka cran or rum & coke girl, so the fact that some of these recipes want me to mix the two absolutely baffled my mind at first. Not so much now. I have seen some cocktails mixing 3 or more different alcohols, so mixing two is old news to me now. I can't say that I would recommend this drink to my friends because they like more of the same kinds of cocktails I do, but for someone who likes the taste of the liqueurs and alcohols more then the mixes and juices, I would say to definitely go for it!
Here is the recipe for the Wild Thing:
- 1 1/2 shots vodka
- 1/2 shot rum
- 1/2 shot triple sec
- dash of lime juice
- dash of sweet & sour mix
- 2 1/2 shots cranberry juice
In a shaker add ice, vodka, rum, triple sec, lime juice and sweet & sour mix. Shake it up real good to get all of the ingredients mixed well. Strain it into a tall glass filled 3/4 with ice. Then add the cranberry juice.

Here's to a late night cocktail! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
