Are you winning? Are you bi-winning? Winning here and winning there? Whether you’re rocking it a parties that are not from this particular terrestrial realm, using a blender, using a vaccum cleaner, or making Sinatra look like a droopy-eyed armless child, one thing is for sure.

And so, people everywhere are preparing themselves batches of Tiger Blood drinks. As a child growing up in conservative, buttoned-up Utah, Tiger’s Blood was a common snowcone flavor. One of my favorite.

I suppose there are a plethora of liquors one could mix into this base. I’ll leave that up to you since I’m a Utah gal. But, for those of you looking to replicate the flavor of strawberry-coconut Tiger’s Blood, here ya go. Winning.
