Skinny Girl Sangria!

You might want to grab a bottle of red wine and fill it with delicious fruit…and then again you might not. I found the Skinny Girl Sangria and the Lazy Girl Sangria and since they were strikingly similar, I decided to pit them against each other and decide which comes out on top!

Leprechauns Lunch Cocktail!

Time to get ready for St. Patrick’s Day. This week’s Pinterest inspired drink is called the Leprechaun’s Lunch Cocktail and I tracked it back to the Slow Roasted Italian. I was definitely skeptical about this drink because it called for that dreaded Creme De Menthe that I used in last week’s disgusting drink, but I still had hope. Can that bottle be salvaged? Only one way to find out:

The Drunken Leprechaun!

My friend Marci joined me in making this week’s drink The Drunken Leprechaun! I found it on Pinterest and traced it back to and was pleased to find a second drink called the pot’o’gold. We did both in honor of upcoming St. Patrick’s day. Just three ingredients, so easy!

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.

    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:

    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!
