We first heard about these a couple of weeks ago. From the beginning, my curiosity was piqued – a mix between a raspa and a cocktail?! Huh, we had to find these and try them for ourselves as soon as possible. Last night, we finally did and I have to say I’ve never been more sure that everything IS literally bigger in Texas, jaja!! It’s also pretty cool that the El Oasis drive-thru beverage stop – yes, I said drive-thru – is so close to our house! About 10 minutes away.
Now from what I was able to dig up online, it seems like this drive-thru mixed cocktail (preparadas) business model is a new concept here in Texas. A news report from 2009, highlights the unique Mexican concoction in an article titled Drive-thru stores now serve cocktails to go. In truth, I don’t know how many of you might have these in your towns as well, but the lady working at El Oasis told us Smirnoff is the one who sends them the recipes for each of the preparadas they serve. I thought that was kind of cool. You can get them in pretty much any flavor Smirnoff offers, accompanied by the same fruit in a cup. Here’s our little adventure:

Hey yaya… we’re not really sure about San Antonio, but if you find out please share it with us here. We’d love to know for our next trip into San Anton 🙂
No one can top the Smirnoff preparada from Kans and Kegs in Pharr/San Juan. They are to die for. If you are ever along the border in the Pharr area, you need to stop and buy one.
I first tried these at NIOSA during Fiesta in San Antonio. I’ve also seen them inside by the shops at Market Square in downtown San Antonio. There are also plenty of recipes that I found on Pinterest.
