SoCo Limeade—SO Much Better Than Your 21st Birthday Shot

There’s a reason lots of folks choose a SoCo & Lime as their first shot when they turn 21: Southern Comfort may be strong, but it’s got enough sweetness and fruitiness that it’s palatable. In fact, cut with some citrus it’s actually pretty delicious! So of course we decided to turn it into a cocktail. It’s all the fun of a special-occasion shot, in a respectably sippable form. Bottoms up!

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
