June is Pride Month, and this drink was inspired by a pride cocktail created at the Stonewall Inn called “Off the Wall”. The drink's creator is quoted saying "The song captures how I live my life and how I see myself. I live life on my terms, being free and throwing caution to the wind no matter what people think or say". The original cocktail uses Cucumber Vodka, pomegranate, lime, mint, ginger, and sugar. Inspired by the drink and flavors, I created a riff on a “fruit cup” using Jägermeister as the base spirit with muddled cucumber and mint, tied together with some hibiscus grenadine and spiced orange soda. The result was absolutely refreshing and easy drinking and named after Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way” in honor of the quote by the creator of the inspirational drink and Pride month.
