Liqueur de Tequila Rose Strawberry Cream
It is a strawberry cream liqueur with just a hint of Tequila.
You can serve it at room temperature, or chilled, which is probably the best way, to be honest.
My wife is not a particular fan of either strawberries or Tequila for that matter, so her liking for Liqueur de Tequila Rose Strawberry Cream is a matter of some wonder.
Basically, it is a strawberry based cream drink with just enough Tequila to make things a little bit more interesting.
You can use it to make cocktails (we'll include some recipes) but many people just prefer to chill it and sip it. Sat outside on a hot, summer's day, there's nothing like a chilled bottle of Liqueur de Tequila Rose Strawberry Cream to help the day pass more smoothly.
And at only15% alcohol by volume, it's lighter on the alcohol than you might think.
So, what about these recipes, then?
Mix it with Irish cream, or coconut flavoured rum, or vanilla or toffee flavoured vodka, serve with ice, crushed or chunked, add some real dairy cream and you have a wide and perhaps wild range of cocktails.
And here's an off the wall idea, when you are making a strawberry cheesecake, add some Liqueur de Tequila Rose Strawberry Cream into the mix and chill well before serving. Obviously you'll need some glasses of chilled Liqueur de Tequila Rose Strawberry Cream to help it go down!
It's distilled in Missouri and is imported exclusively into the UK by those very nice folks at Halewood International in Liverpool.
It should be available in all good stores throughout the UK.
