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.

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:

Malibu Coconut Rum
Cranberry juice
Orange juice

And enjoy your 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.
