SAMMIES SALADITO

Ingredients:
2 Limes
Tequila (for best results, use a mezcal!)
Blue Curaçao
Cherries
Cayenne pepper
Salt
Ice

INSTRUCTIONS (ONE SERVING):
In a shaker, combine:

  • 1 handful of ice
  • 2 oz ounces of lime juice (2 limes worth)
  • 2 ounces silver tequila

Shake for about 30 seconds (don’t shake too long, or you’ll have ice chips!)

With your lime rinds, coat your rim with lime juice. Then roll the rim in salt.

Pour your shaken tequila and lime juice over ice.

Gently pour about .5 ounces of Blue Curaçao down the side of your drink! This will sink to the bottom.

Drop two cherries in, sprinkle cayenne pep- per on top and enjoy!

STAR SPANGLED SANGRIA

Ingredients:
White wine (pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc are best, but really any semi-sweet will work)
Peach schnapps
Sprite
White grape juice
Strawberries
Blueberries
Apples

In a large pitcher, combine your bottle of wine, 4-6 ounces of peach schnapps (more=sweeter), one 8-12 ounce can of Sprite (again, more=sweeter), and as many strawberries, blueberries and star-cut apples as you can fit! For best results, chill for 60 minutes before serving.

SAMMIES SPRITZ (ALCOHOL FREE)

Ingredients:
Lemonade
Sprite
Lime
Strawberries
Blueberries

Slice two strawberries and layer the bottom of your glass, leaving a center slice aside for your garnish. Then add a couple ice cubes.

Combine a splash of lemonade and the juice from your lime in a shaker with ice. Shake for about 30 seconds, no more, and pour over your ice cubes. Top your drink off with Sprite and drop in a few blueberries—these should float!

Make a small slit down the center of your strawberry slice and place it on the rim of your glass as a garnish. Enjoy!

FED FIREWORKS

Ingredients:
Baileys (or RumChata, Amarula, or your choice of cream liqueur) 
Gold or Spiced rum (I used captain, but Bacardi gold, Mount Gay, Ron Castillo, really any gold or spiced will work)
Fireball—I know, just trust me.
White frosting
Red & Blue sprinkles

First, scoop some frosting onto a small plate or dish. Roll your rim in the frosting to coat the lip of your glass. On a second plate, mix your red and blue sprinkles and roll your frosted rim—yum! 

In your shaker, add 3 oz of your cream liqueur, .5 oz of fireball and 2 oz of your rum. Shake for ~30 seconds and then pour into your frosting rimmed glass—careful, this one goes down easy.

As a proud civil servant, I am honored to be a finalist for the 2020 Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals. Every year, the Sammies are awarded to dedicated federal employees, and this year is especially fitting. Throughout the pandemic, we have all personally felt the effects of leadership in government. The Sammies bring together the people that have tirelessly devoted themselves and their careers to making a difference through public service. It is a distinct privilege to be recognized alongside my fellow finalists. On Monday, Oct. 5, at 8:00 p.m. EDT, the winners will be announced during a virtual celebration, and I hope you can all make it. Register and learn more at SERVICETOAMERICAMEDALS.ORG.
