Trick Or Treat Halloween Punch

Trick Or Treat Halloween Punch

This week’s Trick or Treat Halloween Punch is for the kids!…mostly. I mean you can give it to your kids, they’ll be excited about it, but if you pour a little vodka in on the side you might want to keep that glass just to yourself.

I discovered it on my quest to make Halloween drinks every Friday of October and I can’t believe how easy it was. You just choose three different colored juices and pour them in a pitcher in order of sugar content (highest to lowest) I impressed my own self! Take a look:

Enjoy!

Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate!

Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate

Even though last week’s pumpkin drink was a disgrace, it did not dissuade me from following up with another pumpkin drink. This time I wanted to be a little more careful about the quantity of pumpkin puree I’d be digesting in the recipe, because gross. I thought this pumpkin white hot chocolate seemed to fit the bill! Watch me work my drink making magic:

I cannot believe I was able to make something that tasted so similar to my favorite pumpkin spice latte, but ALSO had a kick to it. I’m thinking this will be the perfect little concoction for long rainy days stuck inside with the children. In the most responsible manner of course!

Visit The Minimalist Baker for the entire recipe and ENJOY…so so good.

Frozen Pumpkin Mudslide

Friday…the best day of the week and for some reason I thought it would be brilliant to ring in this month with a frozen pumpkin mudslide.

Let me just tell you, this might rank as one of the top most disgusting drinks I’ve ever concocted.

Nay.

It is THE most disgusting drink. Top number one on my list of gross. And I’ll tell you exactly where I went wrong. It was with the pumpkin. I have never in my life had a problem with a “frozen mudslide”, but in walks October and we think we need to mix a perfectly good drink up by adding a cup of pumpkin puree to it and you know what? Enough of that!

No drink she include a cup of pumpkin puree…but watch me think it’s a great idea to try and drink it anyway:

Let us instead choose to ring in the weekend with something a little more fun than this frozen pumpkin mudslide…might I suggest scrubbing toilets as an alternative? ;)

Enjoy your weekend!

this particular one was the very prettiest of them all and you can find the original recipe over at I Love My Disorganized Life.

Enjoy your weekend!

Friday Drink: Moscato Lemonade

Mixing my favorite sweet wine with my favorite sweet summer drink…it’s about as easy as it sounds, but the dancing is a little something extra I threw in just for you:

Wine + Lemonade + Strawberry Flavored Vodka = a great way to ring in the weekend. Enjoy your Moscato Lemonade or just imagine what it might be like to enjoy such a drink if you actually felt like making it.

Pink Starburst Cocktail

This week I’m sharing a drink called the Pink Starburst Cocktail I found on Pinterest and traced back to Happy Food Healthy Life. Pop on over there for the entire recipe (and gorgeous drink photos).

To be honest I think it’s just pretty drink photos that suck me in every time because I’m honestly not a weekly drinker…not until I forced myself to become one on YouTube with my Friday drinks. The pictures are just so dang pretty, it would be a waste not to taste them amiright?

Watch the video to find out whether or not this one was a success for me!:

Cheers to the weekend!

Today I’m sharing a Friday drink that you can make from the comfort of your hotel room. This technique comes in really handy for people who happen to be staying in hotel rooms and find themselves thirsty…for…alcohol? Yes. Exactly that.

I found myself in a hotel room with Jess from Shuggilippo and wouldn’t you know we were both thirsty for alcohol? This is how we made the most of our mini bar:
