Recipe of the day
Summer is all about refreshing cocktails, but sometimes mixologists go overboard with overly sweet concoctions. The "St. Ambrose Cup" is a cocktail that stays light with ingredients like lemon and cucumber, but still packs a serious boozy punch with tequila and Campari. It is reminicsent of a margarita, but the extra ingredients add a bit of complexity, and make it the kind of drink that will have guests asking for seconds (or thirds and fourths...)
To make sure you see every step and get tips along the way, watch the video above with Please Don't Tell's Jeff Bell. You can also follow the full recipe below:
