Elle Can't Cook: Yucca (Wapatui) Drink


Having a cookout? Going camping? Want a super easy drink that's just PERFECT for summer? Look no further than the YUCCA!

Ingredients:
  • 1 gallon-size pickle jar
  • 3 lemons
  • 3 limes
  • 1 C sugar
  • bag of ice
  • 1 L (fifth) of Tequila
  • 1 towel
Method:
  • pour sugar in pickle jar
  • cut lemons/limes in half
  • squeeze into jar and drop in
  • add tequila
  • shake until sugar dissolves
  • fill to almost top with ice & seal jar
  • shake
  • fill to top with ice (again) and seal
  • shake and add more ice and seal jar
  • wrap towel around the jar, covering top and bottom
  • leave jar alone until the towel sticks to the jar
  • ENJOY!
There's various methods and legends on this drink. I have heard it called different names too. I didn't invent the name or the drink and it has nothing to do with the plant. Some involve shaking the jar and passing it around, taking a drink each time. We just always pour ours into cups/glasses and keep it classy! Ha. Enjoy!

What's your go-to summer drink? Is it easier to make than this?

    Tonight I'm going to make up some agua fresca with a melon and yellow watermelon I just received - add some gin to that, and I will have one refreshing beverage!

  6. Interesting!!!! I've never tried this!!! I am going to have to do this.

    My favorite summer drink would be a lime margarita on the rocks or rum and pineapple juice. :)

  9. Why is it that Tequila seems to be the summertime staple? I'm not a fan of it because I seem to get sick all the time when I drink it but this drink does seem rather delish.

  18. I've never done it personally but my family has. They say to get it perfect you gotta shake for an hour straight so make sure there are plenty of arms to shake and shake. Taste just like lemonade that "yucca " is what you'll be doing later in the bathroom. Enjoy!

  20. just curious what the Yucca(a plant toxic to humans unless prepared properly) has to do with this drink? Is it just coincidentally the name of the drink?
