Happy Tipsy Tuesday Everyone!!! As I have told you in the past, my son works as a bartender, so I am never surprised when he comes home with drinks that have wacky names. I mean there are actually drinks called a duck fart!!! WOW I don’t think I want to try that one! But when he came home with a drink called Killer Kool-aid I was interested. I grew up drinking Kool-aid but I don’t think this was what Kool-Aid Man was bringing in his pitcher. This is a much more adult version of our childhood favorite drink!
I was a bit skeptical when he told me everything that went into the drink, but I should just learn to trust him. Just like I say the family needs to trust me with the food. He knows what he is doing. This drink is great for a backyard BBQ or just hanging out. It would make a fantastic adult Popsicle as well!!!
Hello my fellow cocktail lovers! It is that time of the week again for me to share a wonderful “adult” beverage with you. I am trying very hard to find you new and exciting drinks to try. I mean just talking about wine isn’t enough, although I will share with you that my favorite white wine is Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio. I found that wine about 6 years ago and have yet to find another I enjoy as much within that price range. So you know that I used that wine in this drink.
I love the summertime when it comes to cocktails! Seriously, summertime is just party time right? In the winter, other than the holidays, the only things I want to drink are warm and comforting (except for wine but I am an admitted wino).
I found this sangria on Averie Cooks and instantly fell in love with the ingredients. I changed it up a bit, but I will give you the original recipe with notes on what I changed. Mostly the changes all depend on your personal preferences, it would taste good either way in my opinion. If you love mango, pineapple, peach, and white wine, I think you will love this. Plus it is so refreshing, it is just perfect for time outside in the summer sunshine!
Happy Tipsy Tuesday everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with lots of good food and family fun. It was pretty quiet here. Ever since Miss Picky Pants moved to CA the rowdiness factor has reduced a bit in my house. She was my “partner in crime” a lot so I am kind of like Batman without Robin right now. She is doing really well, so my discomfort it easily put in the backseat to her future life. Besides the fact that my plan is that we wont be away from each other long. I may be moving back to California soon!! Anyway, enough about my life, let’s get on to the fun, and the booze. I mean this IS Tipsy Tuesday right?
As I mentioned last week, my son, the super bartender, was out of town so I was left to my own devices to come up with a tasty drink for you all. This week I had several ideas, one included blood oranges, but there were no blood oranges to be found. He told me about a drink he makes quite a bit and it sounded awesome. I adore peaches. I almost grilled some on the BBQ this weekend but was told very quickly that I had waaaaay too much food already planned any more was unnecessary *insert huge foodie pout here* Needless to say, a peach drink sounded fantastic to me.
This drink is so simple, only a few ingredients, that way you can enjoy your drinks without stressing out over how much of what thing goes where.
1-ounce peach schnapps
1-ounce Crown Royal
Peach slices for garnish (optional)
Fill glass with ices, add equal parts o schnapps and Crown Royal. Top with orange juice and stir. Garnish with peach slice and serve.
Happy Tipsy Tuesday everyone! This is the second Tipsy Tuesday that I have done and I was surprised by how much everyone really loved the last one. There were so many pins and tweets, it was great! I hope that you all enjoy this post as much as you did the last one.
I know I have mentioned that my son is a bartender, and he comes up with some terrific drinks, which I will be posting soon. But he was out of town this weekend PLUS I was cruising around Pintrest and found a blog called Endless Simmer. The have a section they call Endless Poptails where they make “adult” popsicles. I love the idea but know that I would be the only one here eating the popsicles so that could be dangerous. A drink however? Ya, everyone here was down with that idea! So I decided to take their Watermelon Blackberry Margarita Poptail idea and run with that. That is how Watermelon Blackberry Jargaritas came to be!
So refreshing, I hope you give them a try!
Bring the sugar and water to boil in a small sauce pan. Boil until sugar is dissolved, allow to cool.
In a food processor, puree the watermelon flesh. Add a little of the sugar syrup to sweeten, to taste. Put the pureed watermelon into empty ice cube trays and freeze at least 4 hours.
Place a few of the watermelon ice cubes into the cocktail shaker. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker you can use two glasses together. Add a few of the blackberries (I used about 5), about 4 ounces of the limeaid and tequilla, and 2 ounces of the Grand Marnier. Shake to blend. Add a few regular ice cubes to the jars (or glasses) and pour the cocktail over the ice allowing a few of the watermelon ice cubes to fall into the glass. Garnish with a fresh blackberry.
