Mint Chip Martini!

mint chip martini

This weekend’s Mint Chip Martini comes with every good intention of being a preparatory St. Patrick’s Day favorite! I discovered it repinned a bajillion times on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to recreate this Andes Mint flavored cocktail. Unfortunately…ahem…not so much. Looks like I’m not as big a fan of Creme De Menthe as I thought I might be, regardless of it’s pretty color.

Enjoy!

    Sweetie Martini!

    This week’s drink is Inspired By Charm. Literally! I discovered the Sweetie Martini on Pinterest and traced it back to Michael from Inspired By Charm. Who would ever have guessed that mixing vodka, amaretto, white chocolate liquor, grenadine, and milk would cause such a happy situation? You may need to make a trip to the liquor store for this concoction…but still! Pretty:

    You know who else is a sweetie martini? This girl:

    And on that note, have a great weekend!

    Boozy Sweetheart Cocoa And One More

    I was so excited to try this boozy sweetheart cocoa. And actually the original recipe didn’t call for booze. I came up with that part myself. I’ll let you decide whether or not it was a good idea. In the mean time, grab you butter, strawberry ice cream, sugar and get drinking. Just go with it.

    And because it’s Valentine’s Day weekend I had to throw in an adorable bonus video of these two friends making a layered Valentine drink for two. They make me smile the whole way through and it’s a really easy little recipe for kids!

    Cherry Whiskey Smash Cocktail!

    Cherry Whiskey Smash Cocktail

    Weekend time oh Yeah!

    I found this cherry whiskey smash cocktail all over Pinterest and thought it looked like the type of drink you might want to stick two straws into and share with someone on Valentine’s Day. Maybe just in your imagination because Lord knows I’m not the “sharing” type.

    I remember when my husband and I were dating and he would ask if I wanted to share a dessert and I’d be all, “oh sure!”

    And then I’d nibble at my half of a Tiramisu wondering why on God’s green planet could I not have had my own dessert. I don’t even like Tiramisu. I like blackberry cobbler. But my boyfriend didn’t like blackberry cobbler so of course the Tiramisu was just fine with me!

    Eff that noise.

    Next time I’m getting a blackberry cobbler and we’ll just see what anybody has to say about that!

    In the mean time, ENJOY THIS DRINK!

    Beast Mode Vodka!

    Cheers to the weekend!

    Since the Super Bowl is happening this weekend, I had to give one last “shot” out to my Seahawks. I saw the Beast Mode Vodka recipe on Pinterest and traced it back to AllRecipes.com.

    I’ve never had candy infused vodka before, so I was excited to try it!:

    And now let’s stop pretending I’m going to a Super Bowl party.

    What the heck am I going to do with all this vodka?

    12th Man Margaritas #GoHawks

    The Seahawks are headed to the Super Bowl a second year in a row and to celebrate I’m sharing the 12th Man Margaritas that I found on Pinterest. I traced the drink back to Elliot’s Oyster House in Seattle and one of these days I plan to pay a visit and taste the real deal.

    In the mean time, gather your tequila, blue curacao, and sweet and sour together for a good time!

    National Hot Buttered Rum Day

    hot buttered rum

    Today is (was) National Hot Buttered Rum Day, and since I don’t think I’ve ever actually tasted hot buttered rum, I thought…YOLO! Let’s make some hot buttered rum!

    So I did:

    And…nasty. Which honestly surprised me because it’s so pretty.

    Everything was going great until the recipe told me to top off my delicious cream mixture with a pot of boiling water. I should have known better.

    I do not encourage you to top this drink with boiling water.

    Heat up some milk…make your hot buttered rum creamy and sweet instead of weird.
