Jam Cocktail!

The Jam Cocktail

I found the Jam Cocktail on Pinterest and was intrigued at the idea of adding a scoop of JAM to what is essentially a glass of gin and lemon juice.

Much to my great joy I was able to trace the drink to my favorite Michael at Inspired By Charm and Marci and I got to work:

Michael did mention you can make this drink with vodka if gin is not your thing. And he also kindly encouraged the use an actual lemon. The version Marci and I made is what would happen if you left Hoda and Kathie Lee alone with hard liquor.

Hippie Juice!

Hippie Juice

We went camping last weekend and I have a ton of wonderful photos and videos to share from that trip as soon as I get my act together.

We arrived a day before my siblings so I decided to take the opportunity to make a great camping-friendly drink I was seeing on Pinterest, Hippie Juice!

I usually hate filming anything in front of Pat, but he was quite helpful on this one and even made a very rare appearance!:

1 Cup Watermelon Vodka
1/3 Cup Triple Sec
1/3 Cup Coconut Malibu Rum

This definitely makes my top ten list! Have a great weekend!

Razzy Blue Lemonade!


I had high hopes of recreating a red, white, and blue drink for the 4th of July, but as luck would have it…no.

The Razzy Blue Lemonade did not want to have any red in it whatsoever. I did manage to add my own decorative spin and salvaged my festive drink!:

You can find the full recipe here!

Or you can just pour a shot of vodka and blue curacao into a glass, add a bunch of lemonade and top it off with that raspberry liqueur you don’t own.

On second thought…a bottle of wine goes a long way and is a heck of a lot less work.

Cheers to the weekend!

Bridesmaid’s Punch!

You don’t have to be a Bridesmaid to enjoy this week’s Pinterest drink! Marci and I tossed together Moscato, pink lemonade and 7 up and the results were perfection. I would keep the Bridesmaid’s Punch in my refrigerator at all times if it didn’t look like something my kids would want to get into it:

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Mixed Berry Mojitos!

Mixed Berry Mojitos

This week’s drink was recommended by viewer Ashley H. who happened to see mixed berry mojitos on Pinterest. Berries, Rum and 7up never sounded easier so I thought I’d give it a try:

I’ve been posting shortened versions of my YouTube videos on Instagram including video outtakes and lip sync battles against nobody in particular. Follow along if that sort of thing rocks your world:

Margarita Popsicles!

Everything about this week’s Pinterest inspired recipe screams YES to me…until I tried it. Margarita popsicles sound like they should be awesome, especially in this warm weather we’ve been having. I don’t know if it was the texture or the taste, but they definitely did not work for me:

But I’m not giving up. I feel like these can be successful maybe with juice instead of¬†sweetened condensed milk. And perhaps sugar instead of tequila. I guess essentially what I’m looking for is a store bought popsicle.

We’ll get’em next time kids!

The Tequila Sunrise

The Tequila Sunrise

Move over Mimosa, it’s Tequila’s turn to rise. I’ve never had a Tequila Sunrise, but after seeing it making a run through my Pinterest stream I thought now was as good a time as any. Would I live to regret that decision? Of course not. This drink is a triple threat:

(video here)

Here’s what you do.

  • Put ice in your glass
  • Add a splash of Grenadine
  • Pour in a shot of Tequila
  • Top it off with Orange Juice

So so easy! And enjoyable. And pretty.

Have a great weekend!
