The Long-Face Dove

Lab Rating: 3.5 out 5

Although, this cocktail punch has a funny name and we here in the lab aren’t quite sure how the name relates to the actual cocktail itself, with Fall quickly approaching this is a great punch cocktail to enjoy with friends after a hard day at work to enjoy the last days of Summer.  This punch cocktail is a smooth drink that is meant to be enjoyed at a slow pace and does well as a drink that one can enjoy while recapping the day with colleagues and/or friends.  While the main ingredient in this cocktail is Tequila, the addition of grapefruit and lime juice does a great job at tempering the taste of the Tequila for those individuals that might be leery of Tequila cocktails. We here in the lab found this cocktail to be pleasantly smooth, enjoyable (especially with Tacos), and easy to make.  This is a cocktail for those that want to relax and enjoy the evening and while we here in the lab did get a nice buzz after finishing the pitcher, for those looking for a party cocktail punch you would be better off trying something else.  This is a cocktail that will be enjoyed a few more times before Fall completely sets in.  Give this cocktail a try before closing out this Summer 17!
