The Cactus Cooler Cocktail is an ideal summer drink, best enjoyed when you’re having a picnic with friends or lazing by the pool side. The cocktail can also be made into a shot.
As the name suggests, the Cactus Cooler is so cool and refreshing that it could quench even the thirst of a cactus frying under the desert sun. It is a very flavourful and energy-packed drink, and perfect to have with a bunch of friends at the bar. This chilling cocktail is surprisingly easy to throw back, and will bring you to life in the way water revives a cactus.
The Cactus Cooler is one of those rare drinks which cocktail enthusiasts and people new to drinking can both enjoy just as well. It is as potent as it is refreshing, and has the potential to knock you out if you’re not careful with the quantity. Some say that the taste is very similar to the American soft drink of the same name which many have enjoyed in their childhood.
The drink is an invigorating take on the standard cocktail recipes. It is a must-have on a summer drink list, anywhere, anytime, any occasion. So enjoyable is this drink that many call it their favourite cocktail of all time. When someone makes variations to the classic recipe, it is generally just to switch up the energy drink band based on personal taste. Otherwise, the cocktail has a complete recipe that needs no substitutions or variations.
