Raspberry Beer Cocktail

Pinterest is at it again, trying to convince me to give Raspberry Beer Cocktail a shot. I think we just improved beer with this recipe. Not a huge surprise since I wasn’t a big fan of it to start with. Any handful of fruit and juice could improve that stuff. Maybe.

Just mix a Corona with a couple scoops of frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate and a shot of vodka. Add a handful of raspberries for a lovely Spring garnish type thing and enjoy!

Grapefruit Mimosas!

Happy Easter weekend!

This week’s drink is all about taking a perfectly great regular mimosa and then changing all of the ingredients, but still call it a mimosa. For example, a typical mimosa contains orange juice and champagne, but for the Grapefruit mimosas that Pinterest wants me to try, you need Grapefruit juice, sparkling, water and vodka.

See how they’re kind of the same and yet not the same at all? That’s why we love them.

But do we really love them?

Cheers and enjoy your weekend!


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 Realhousemoms.com 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:
