My Martini Moment

Drunk In Love

Happy Friday Friends!

Valentine’s Day might be over but I’m still bringing the love...or maybe alcohol right into the weekend! MK, Theo Shane, and I had a great V-Day staying in. Theo sipped his milk while MK and I enjoyed wine, cheeses, and some steak. I do love our tradition of staying in!

Today’s cocktail is seriously delicious. I’m not typically a mason jar kind of person but I saw this adorable cup at my local Shop n’ Save and couldn’t resist making a drink for it (and then later use it for decoration).

What you do:

Simply add your booze, and top with Strawberry Lemonade!

You can add sprinkles to your rim if desired.

I hope you have a great weekend full of love and maybe a little hootch!

The Good Freeze

Hey guys, it’s Friday and we made it through the week!

That means it’s time for a cocktail, right?

I don’t know about you but I had one busy week! We had tons of shoots, including a fabulous engagement. And, of course, the mothering of my son and dogs is nonstop, that’s just the way I like it. Now, if only I could get a handle on this laundry? Eff.

We, here in Southwestern Pennsylvania, had a week of 4° and the next day it was 60° and then ended the work week with some snow and I thought it was only appropriate to make “The Frozen Martini”. This easy cocktail is way easy, way good, and much needed. 

What you need:

What you do:

All you do for this one is add everything but the Sprite to a shaker full of ice and strain into a rimmed martini glass (I used blue icing and coconut shreds), then just top with Sprite and enjoy!

So, no matter where you are, I hope this weekend is jam packed with all the things you love!

My Kind Of Mid Winter

Hellooooo Friday!

So we aren’t at the middle of winter just yet, even though it is quickly approaching.

I thought since we may or may not be getting pummeled with snow this weekend that I would share “The Mid Winter Margarita”. You don’t always have to save the Margs for warm weather! I talked about cookbooks in my last post and I think it is equally important to have at least one good cocktail book. My favorite is “Shake” (linked below) and I got it when on the Bourbon Trail a few years back. This delicious recipe is from there and in my opinion a great one to get snowed in with.

What you need:

What you do:

Simply, throw all of this delicious goodness into a shaker over ice.

For the rim: run a lime wedge around the whole rim and then dip in a sea salt and chili powder mix.

Even though this is a cold drink I’m fairly certain it will still keep you warm this weekend! Stay safe friends!
