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

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

12thman  margaritas

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

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.

Coconut Strawberry Daiquiris!

Coconut Strawberry Daiquiri

We’re drinking coconut strawberry daiquiris this weekend because it’s the perfect drink to welcome our upcoming Valentine’s Day and we’re so HAPPY!

Or maybe not if you stayed up until 2am soothing a panicked child. Again. For the third time this week. Maybe you’re losing your mind because you’re out of ideas to help your own child and you thought when they were half grown all of their sleep issues would be resolved.

Maybe you can’t really blog about it because your kids are too old to air any sort of private struggles they’re having. Maybe you’re pulling your hair a little bit instead of celebrating another weekend like you should be.

Not saying this is happening to me right now, but MAYBE IT’S HAPPENING TO YOU.

All the more reason to pour a stiff one:

Celebrate With Champagne Margaritas!

Champagne Margaritas

I was extremely pleased to ring in the New Year with the Champagne Margaritas I found on Pinterest. I’m not a huge fan of champagne so I was looking forward to doing something to the champagne to make it taste LESS like champagne. And you know what? I think it worked! We’re starting the year off on a high note because THIS drink…I can drink. Repeatedly.

And also, I got a new camera this year and was really excited to film this video with it. You might not notice a difference, but I do. Way clear!!:

(video here)

Full Recipe:

.5 Shot Silver Tequila
.5 Shot Triple Sec
2 TB. Lime Juice

Since champagne flutes are so small I only added half a shot so that everything could fit nicely.

Dip the rim of your glass in lime juice and then into a plate of sugar to get that wonderful sugared rim!

Add the Tequila, Triple Sex, and lime juice to your glass and top with Champagne.

Enjoy and Happy New Year!

Grinch Punch WITH The Vodka

grinch punch drink

I’m wrapping up this week with a delightful Christmas drink I saw on Pinterest called Grinch Punch. Who doesn’t love a little vodka with green Sherbet, am I right!?! And that’s exactly what this drink calls for. Green Sherbet, vodka, and 7up. No milk curdling this week folks! Just good old fashioned vodka and 7up.

(video here)

Lucky for me Kainoa comes running every time he hears me concocting something in the kitchen, so I let him make a kid friendly version of Grinch Punch and the result speaks for itself.


The Peppermint Float!

Peppermint Float

I’ll admit this week’s drink did not go according to plan. One might call it a “near disaster”, but because I am practically a certified bartender at this point, I made a little adjustment to save the drink and blessed be, it actually worked. Introducing the Pinterest inspired (literally dozens of recipes to choose from) Peppermint Float! A perfect holiday treat!:

(video here)

The official recipe is:

-A little bit of Bailey’s
-A little bit of Milk
-Peppermint flavored ice cream

YUM and Enjoy!
