Mix It Up Monday: Maxine


Today’s Mix It Up Monday cocktail is called Maxine, as in Maxine Waters. After being tickled by the interviews Congresswoman Waters gave throughout January, I just knew I needed to make a cocktail after her. Maxine is a delicious tequila-based cocktail where berry flavors are enhanced with a bite.


2 oz of quality tequila

1/2 oz of simple syrup


raspberry ginger beer (Reed’s is preferred)


In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, muddle a handful of blackberries in simple syrup. Next, add in the tequila and shake well. Pour mixture into a glass of ice and fill the remaining part of the glass with the raspberry ginger beer.

Enjoy! And be careful to not be as sassy as Mrs. Waters.
