Hokies know that even when the tailgate gear is packed away, school spirit endures year round. A great example of this is the Hokie Highball drink, which can be enjoyed no matter which season it is. This light and fruity cocktail is mixed with Southern Comfort, so do not let the sprite and cranberry juice deceive you of its powerful punch. The juice has a dark maroon hue in the bottom of the glass to create colorful cheers in true Hokie spirit. I suggest substituting the lime wedge with an orange one to complete the picture. Until the fall colors surround us and we gather together in Lane Stadium again, you can mix the Hokie Highball and raise your glass to what ties us all together. Let’s go.
1 ounce Southern Comfort
1 ounce Peach Schnapps
1 ounce gin
2 ounces cranberry juice
3 ounces Sprite
Lime wheel to garnish
1. Combine all of the ingredients, except for the Sprite, into an ice filled cocktail shaker.
2. Cover, shake well and pour into your glass. Pour in the Sprite, gently stir and garnish with the lime. Enjoy.
