Recipe Notes and Tips
To make a big batch:
None of the ingredients are carbonated or delicate. So you can mix all the ingredients in advance in large quantities.
Just make sure to store the mixture in the fridge and take it out right before serving.
A good party batch quantity would be a cup of each ingredient, evenly mixed.
To make as a cocktail:
Simply, fill a glass with some ice, Then, pour in the same measurements as making a shot. (Or double it up depending on how strong you want the cocktail.)
Finally, top off the glass with sparkling water, tonic water, or lemon lime soda.
