It’s almost Friday friends, we made it! Has it been a long week for you? It hasn’t been as long for me as it has been odd. Monday started out very atypical and I have had a hard time getting in the groove ever since so I am excited about the weekend for sure! Of course weekends mean cocktails are on deck too and I am pretty excited about this new one that I came up with while my mom was in town! My pink prickly pear citrus spritzers are the perfect drink to whip up all weekend long!
Happy Thursday guys! One more day to get through until the weekend and I am already dreaming about refreshing cocktails because it has been getting hotttt y'all! And when the weather is hot outside there are only two things that sound good and those are being near a body of water and/or drinking a refreshing cocktail. Let's be honest, I'd prefer to be drinking a refreshing cocktail by that body of water, but I'll take either or right now! One of my favorite simple and refreshing cocktails is a screwdriver and I made it even more refreshing by creating a frozen version that is amped up in flavor! My frozen mint screwdrivers are perfect for your next beach vacation or day by the pool!
As a mom there are two things I can't live without. Those things are healthy foods for my body to give me lots of energy throughout the day and delicious cocktails to keep me sane. I am always looking for easy ways to get as many nutrients in my body as I can without a whole lot of effort and of course I am always mixing up new cocktail concoctions on a weekly basis (because hello I have an 18 month old.) That's why I partnered up with Salad Power to create a delicious and healthy cocktail that is the perfect addition to you brunch this weekend! My spicy sriracha veggie micheladas are easy to make and so full of flavor that you are definitely going to want to try out Salad Power for yourself!
Hi...it's me...I've finally made my way back to you! I know you missed me right? (Well tell me you did even if you didn't.) So, since the last time I talked to you two really exciting things have happened! For one, I have officially written and submitted the first draft of cookbook number two and so now I will have some time again to get back to blogging! And the second exciting news that I have to share with you is that I am joining the Drizly team as one of their TopShelf bloggers! This means I will be creating some really yummy cocktails for them and to share with you! With Valentine's Day being on a weekday next week, I'm kickstarting my new gig with the perfect Valentine's Day brunch cocktail for you to celebrate early with this weekend! My pink lemon kiss cocktail is the perfect romantic cocktail to go with any Valentine's Day celebration that you might have going on!
Happy holidays everyone! How was your Christmas? I hope it was wonderful and filled with so much love. Ours was interesting to say the least! We went to Louisiana for Christmas Eve and that was great, other than the fact that Parks currently has a little cold and was slightly fussier than usual. We left on Christmas Day to come back home and brought home stomach bugs for me and Canean that lasted for two days. Not quite the Christmas I had in mind, so never the less we are having a do-over for New Year's Eve! I am going to try my hand at making homemade pasta for the first time and will be whipping up something with bubbly for a cocktail! Here's a list of my top ten festive New Year's Eve Cocktails!
Is it just me or does the week following a holiday seem like the longest week ever? I have no idea how it is not Friday yet, and I am just trying to get through one more day! To top it all off, Canean has strep throat and a double ear infection so I am on solo parent duty all weekend. Don't even get me started on how I have been a mad woman running around disinfecting the house trying to make sure that Parks and I don't catch it too. Lysol mania is is FULL effect around here. Needless to say, a cocktail (or three) is just what the doctor ordered! My rosemary cran smash is the perfect drink to not only calm those "why isn't it Friday yet" nerves, but you can also use up any of your leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving!
