The SOB Blenheim CocktailOne of our loyal and long time Blenheim Ginger Ale fanatics sent us this recipe for his favorite mixed drink. He calls his cocktail creation “The S.O.B;” surely named after where our production plant is located on the grounds of the famed South of the Border tourist attraction in Hamer, South Carolina. Ok, we’re not really sure about that fact, but that’s our story and we are sticking to it! His recipe for the “The S.O.B” is pretty simple, but has a very complex flavor combination that provides equal parts of sweet, spicy and sour which come together to form a drink that kicks back like an angry mule.

The recipe:

Using a standard old-fashioned glass or a Collins glass with a couple of ice cubes in it, add a jigger (1.5oz) of your favorite anejo or gold tequila, a ¼ cup (4oz) Blenheim Old #3 Hot, and  .5oz of fresh lime juice and stir slowly so you don’t lose all the bubbles and fizz of the soda. Add a slice of lime wedge on the rim, then sit back, relax and sip away with your favorite Mexican food, some Buffalo wings, or a big juicy steak hot off the grill.

What’s the craziest thing you have done to get a taste of Blenheim in your life? Send us your story and we might just add it to our Blog in the future.

    Hey I haven’t tried you product yet, but I did start mixing Ginger Ale in my Margaritas recently just for fun. Do you have “Blenhein Margarita” recipe yet, would love to try it. Maybe you can make that one of your feature drinks in Key West this November. Glad to see you’ll be joining the rest of us Parrot Heads in paradise

    We will have to do some experimenting to develop a Blenheim Margarita. It might take a while though, we need to do a LOT of testing….for “quality control” purposes of course. ;)

    Tried this ginger ale for the first time. An employee at Abbott Farms coerced me into trying it. Wonderful…I am sad that I only bought 1 six pack. I only get to Abbott Farms once a year.
