Malibu Summer Rose Cocktail FRIDAY

This week’s special drink is going to be the Malibu Summer Rose Cocktail. I saw it on Pinterest, it had thousands of repins, and I liked the pretty colors. That is basically my criteria for every drink I ever try.

You can find the original recipe over at The Blond Cook and you’ll see I already managed to mess up the ingredients in my video. Cranberry juice…orange juices…they’re interchangeable right?

Have a great weekend!

Hot Pink Barbie Drink FRIDAY!

When I saw this hot pink Barbie drink had been pinned over 16,000 times on Pinterest, I just knew I had to make it mine. Why does stuff like this get pinned so much while my brilliantly crafted story about wearing man shoes gets ZERO Pinterest love. I’ll never stop complaining about this, but I sure do appreciate the drinks I’m finding. So I’ll complain over Coconut Rum this weekend:

Frozen Mudslide FRIDAY!

I’ve been sharing delicious drinks on YouTube that I’m finding on Pinterest every Friday and I think I’m ready to receive me bartending certificate. Today I’m sharing a frozen mudslide recipe and this has been hands down, the best drink I’ve made so far. It’s part milkshake, part delicious:

6 oz Vanilla ice cream
2 oz Vodka
2 oz Baileys
2 oz Kahlua

Dump ingredients into a blender.


Pour into a glass.


This drink is like choosing to have a baby. It might sound like a lot of work with all the blending and what not, but you’ll never regret it. And you won’t lose sleep. And it doesn’t poop.


Vodka Vanilla Chai

My step into coffee drinking began with a chai tea obsession. Once I was accustomed to taking ,my caffeine in this manner I quickly transitioned to Vanilla Lattes.

When I found this Vodka Vanilla Chai recipe I was instantly in love because it combined my vanilla with my chai and added one more ever important ingredient: vodka.

Take a look at how to put one of these bad boys together and also my first taste test sip:
