Cottontail Cocktail

Happy Easter Weekend! Hopefully most of you got today off. With that being said, maybe Happy Hour can start a little sooner with this delicious weekend themed dessert and cocktail.  

Let's say you end up in the situation where you need to bring something to Easter dinner. I've got you covered. This super cute and easy dessert will be perfect. First make chocolate pudding in disposable cups if you're on the go or just don't want the clean up. Then add crushed Oreo's (use the chocolate filling ones, not what I used to give more of a dirt effect). To finish this off, using white chocolate with orange food coloring and dip some strawberries in it. Ta da! Make it the night before so that you can have a nice relaxing Eater morning.  

The Cottontail Martini

1.5 oz vanilla vodka

1.5 oz coconut rum

2 oz skim milk

1/2 oz cream of coconut

splash pineapple juice

Chopped coconut and marshmallow for garnish (my marshmallow is m.i.a.)

I used icing to rim the glass and rolled it in coconut. Put everything in the shaker with ice and strain into glass. Cut a small slice in marshmallow and add to glass. Now you're ready to hop right into the weekend. 

I hope all of you enjoy the holiday weekend!

Cheers!

Drinks and Ice

Happy Friday! Welcome to my Martini Moment! 

Today I'm talking easy holiday DIY decor and the perfect Christmas martini!  

Let's get the drink recipe out of the way so we can have something to sip the rest of this post shall we? 

1 cup chocolate milk

1 oz chocolate liqueur  

1/2 oz peppermint liqueur

Add everything in a shaker with ice and simply pour.

For the rim: rim the glass with chocolate syrup and roll in crushed candy canes

Fast Tip: To make this drink hot, just swap the milk for hot cocoa!  

Now, not only is this DIY fast, easy, and chic it's also inexpensive. All you need is a glue gun, clear color fill, and either branches from outside or picked up at the craft store. And maybe some candles. Get as creative as you want! All you do is glue the branches and roll in the color fill. It makes for chic icy décor, also it's colorless so it can go in just about any room. If you're feeling froggy add some pine. I have an abundance in my back yard so I thought why not?

Cheers to you and cheers to the weekend!
