So you bought a case of Ecto Cooler after being hyped about its re-release. You drank a few cans out of nostalgia and now what do you do with it? You make a Boozy Slimeade! That’s right! This 5 O’Clock Friday recipe is Ghostbusters themed and uses up that pesky Ecto Cooler you have leftover.
When we got the idea for our Ecto Cooler Review, we didn’t have the foresight to think about what we would do with our Ecto Cooler. You see, when you purchase it, you have to buy a case. Sure we will give a few cans to some friends and we will drink some of it on its own. But man, this drink is fairly sugary and needs something to tone it down. That’s where tequila comes in!
We toyed with the idea of other spirits, but we kept coming back to tequila. Minus the carbonation, Ecto Cooler has a citrus soda kind of a vibe. We’ve been playing with variations of the Paloma since the weather here is so ridiculously hot, so when the discussion came up, we knew that was the route to take. Thus the Boozy Slimeade was created! The addition of the Luxardo cherry makes it feel a bit more grown up as well.
Have you picked up your Ecto Cooler yet? What will you do with yours? We’d love to hear all about it! Leave a comment below or use the hash tag #GeekEats! Until next time! Cheers!
