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!
How am I this late to the Bacardi Lime party!?!?!?!
My brother-in-law made me a mojito with Bacardi Lime and it was life changing.
We also had rum and Bacardi Lime cokes.
If you haven’t tried either, I strongly encourage something fun to spice up your summer drinks!!
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!
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?
The Hubster has really gotten into drinking an old fashioned and I have to admit, they are pretty great.
Today’s Thirsty Thursday is brought to you by my new favorite drink – hard coffee!
Have you guys tried these yet?
They are AMAZING.
It tastes like you’re drinking either a chocolate milk or one of those Starbucks Frappucinos that you can get at the gas station.
We are big fans!
I highly recommend it!
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! 🙂
Let’s talk about one of my favorite summer drinks – the mojito! 🙂
1 1/2 oz White rum
6 leaves of Mint
Lemon Lime Soda
1 oz Fresh lime juice
Combine the lime juice and mint. Muddle together.
Top with Sprite/7up/Lemon Lime Soda
It’s another edition of Thirsty Thursday!
Today we’re talking about one of my old favorites, the French Martini!
