Thirsty Thursday

It’s become a real drag that I am back at work and can’t just have a quick cocktail in the middle of the afternoon with my sister-in-law.

Can we go back to afternoon drinking and eating whatever we want all day?

Anyway – my sister-in-law made homemade Irish Cream and it’s pretty amazing.

1 pint half and half
1 cup whiskey (we used Jameson)
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp almond
1/4 tsp coconut extract
3 tbsp chocolate syrup

Wisk ingredients together.

Chill and enjoy!

Thirsty Thursday (Quarantine Edition)


Today’s Thirsty Thursday drink actually comes to you courtesy of our friend Matt.

He recommended gin and Squirt and let me tell you – it does not disappoint!

Squirt Soda 12oz Cans (Pack of 12) - Buy Online in Macedonia ...

I filled a glass with ice, filled it with like one finger of gin (we like Monkey and Hendricks..obviously not together), and then filled the remainder of the glass with Squirt.

I think this is going to be a go-to drink this summer.

It’s light and refreshing.

And a nice little change up for when you’re sick of Tonic Water.

What are you guys drinking this quarantine?

We were at my sister-in-law’s baby shower last weekend and the host made these blueberry basil cocktails and they were amazing!

Muddle together 4-6 basil leaves, a handful of blueberries, and juice from 1/2 lemon. Add simple syrup to taste as it will be a little bitter.

You can add club soda or Sprite to make it fizzy.

You can add gin to make it more of an adult drink too.

I recommend this fun drink for any party or a Thursday night! 🙂
