Boozy Threesomes to Get Your Weekend Started RIGHT

 

These four cocktails only have three ingredients that you can grab in pretty big quantities for cheap. Perfect for pregaming with your crew before going out, because who likes spending $30 at the bars when you can spend $30 on making your own drinks all quarter?? These drink recipes dont contain measurements because, honestly, just fill half the glass with the booze or form a counting system and taste test. Most of these cocktails contain vodka, naturally, the most budget-friendly liquor, but for the most part, you can use whatever clear liquor you want or have. Get creative! College is all about experimentation, afterall. 

 

Technically, a Moscow Mule is made with vodka (Moscow, Russia. Vodka: Russian). But you can use any clear liquor, ginger beer, and lime, and have a Mule. Copper mug not required, because those things are like $20 each. 

The next cocktail, a dainty sounding drink, the Lemon Drop, is basically lemonade and vodka. But a freshly squeezed whole lemon and a splash of easily made simple syrup is the way to go.

 

A margarita doesn't require pricey Cointreau or Triple Sec. Really, all you need is tequila, lots of lime, and agave or another liquid sweetener. Personally, I'd shake it up in a mason jar and throw in some ice and salt on the rim, but it can also be blended into a fun slushie if you need some cooling down. 

A Frog in a Blender is a citrus twist on the classic Vodka Cranberry. Go for a cucumber-lime vodka for another refreshing flavor addition. Also try a less sugary cranberry juice to reduce chances of hangover tomorrow morning. 

Have fun, make mistakes, and get messy! These cheap threesomes are the perfect start to your weekend of fun.
