Just in Time for Spring: Dai-GO-ris from Cordina

Posted By on Wed, Mar 2, 2011 at 9:17 AM

Last year I told you all about mar-GO-ritas, the agave-based frozen treat from Cordina's Big Easy Blends Collection. Those crazy mad scientists from New Orleans are back at it again with their latest adult juice box creation, the dai-GO-ri. This 375 ml marvel is a 100 percent agave product flavored with all natural products and colorings to create a refreshing strawberry daiquiri analog that clocks in at about an 8 percent alcohol level. With a resealable pouch designed to allow you to pop it in the freezer, serve it over rocks or chill it in the pouch, dai-GO-ris are like the Swiss army knives of the cocktail world. Plus they won't get you kicked out of the pool area for bringing in glass containers.

They are brand-new to the Nashville market with a March 1 roll-out date, so look for them in your favorite local liquor store. Some shops are actually installing Cordina-branded coolers so you can buy mar-GO-ritas and dai-GO-ris prefrozen and be ready to hit the lake. Gee, that sounds like something that would go really nicely in a supermarket as well...

While I'll admit that my first sip of the strawberry version was a little sweet for my taste, I would say the same thing about just about any strawberry daiquiri. Other taste testers I shared my pouch with were much more enthusiastic than I was. I guess it takes all kinds, and that leaves more of the mar-GO-ritas for me.

Look for these delights as you start to make more warm weather outdoor plans, and keep an eye open for the next Cordina treat, the piña-GO-lada. Now where did I put my foam parrot head?
