The New York Whiskey Sour

What do you get when you add Whiskey, Lemon, Simple Syrup and Red Wine to an ice cold glass?

The New York Whiskey Sour.

It was pretty on Pinterest when Shuggilippo recommended it, but then Marci and I tried it…and…no:

Maybe next time.


Pink Lemonade Margaritas!

Why didn’t I think of combining pink lemonade with margaritas SOONER? This is the perfect matrimony and it’s all over Pinterest. I give it my solid seal of approval.

Pink Lemonade Margaritas for everyone!!:

Hula Dancer Cocktail!

The Hula Dancer Cocktail2

This week’s drink is the Hula Dancer cocktail and was a recommendation from my friend Jen! She requested it 45 weeks ago and since I’m awesome with follow through, I thought now was as good a time as any! Grab your lychee and grass skirts friends, you’ll need them to enjoy this drink!

Full recipe here. Have a great weekend!

Lava Flow!

The Lava Flow

Today’s drink is a mixture of strawberry rum and pineapple slush and I am all about it!

I found the Lava Flow on Pinterest and traced this recipe back to The Chic Site. Be forewarned, there is a bit of effort involved. You need to blend a red mixture and then you need to blend a yellow mixture and then you need to mix the two mixtures. If that wasn’t already obvious by the picture.

Next time I’ll double the batch and drink with a friend!

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!
