Cosmo Cocktail with Brandy-infused Boba (Tapioca Balls)

‘Not Your Man’s Balls’ is an essential addition to your ‘Cock’tale repertoire.  You will be so excited to get to the bottom of your frozen Cosmo and slurp up those delicious balls- Blackberry Brandy-infused Tapioca balls!

You may have had Boba Tea, Pearl Tea, or Bubble Tea drink. This Boba cocktail is the grown-up version.  We make the Boba a little boozy with Blackberry Brandy liquor.  So yummy, you may wish they were Your man’s balls.  Dirty Martini- Hah!-  It has nothing on this impressive Cosmo cocktail recipe.  Alcohol – infused Boba’s create the feeling of a prize at the bottom of your drink.  

What are Bobas or Tapioca Pearls?  Boba pearls are made of tapioca starch that comes from the cassava root.  Bobas may look gelatinous, but no need to cause a stir.  Vegan cocktail lovers can rest easy knowing that gelatin is not used in the making of these tiny balls of deliciousness.  Bobas come in different sizes, and some drinks feature a special Boba straw.  Don’t let these milky pearls slow you down- You can find store bought Pearls on Amazon.  You’ll love them, and Boba Cocktails will definitely impress your friends.

Why are Bobas so trendy?  Flavors hailing from Thailand, Indonesia, and China have been shaking up the U.S. cocktail game and adding.  Latest Boba trend features interesting flavor profiles, and they add a little something chewy at the end of their cocktail experience.  Bartenders will infuse pearls with alcoholic flavors such as Vodka, Whiskey, Rum or Bourbon.  They often create cocktails with traditional Asian flavors like Black Tea, Milk, Taro Milk Tea, Mango, Pineapple, Lime, Strawberry and Lime or Bitter Melon.  Bet you can’t wait to try ‘Not Your Man’s Balls’, and give your friends something a little special.  

Give the drink that includes someone’s balls- just not your man’s.


Do not prepare the Boba too far ahead, or refrigerate- Nobody likes SQUISHY BALLS!
