Ahhhhhh warm weather!!!! I don’t know what it is, but once patio season hits, I’m all about the fruity beverages!!!! Nothing better than chillen on your patio with a big ole glass of something tropical in your hands!!! What’s even better is having a little something special to pass out when your besties are over enjoying the scenery with you.
Since most of us old ladies aren’t the heavy drinkers we were in our 20’s, my sangria Jello shots are exactly the boozy treat to serve your besties. Boozy enough to keep that buzz going, but not too hard that you will need a day to recover. Cheers!!!
1 Box Raspberry Jello
1 Cup Sangria
1 Cup Boiling Water
Fresh Fruit for Garnish
Plastic Condiment Cups (Dollar Tree)
Pour 1 cup of water into a medium-sized pan. Bring the water to a boil.
I don't know about you, but these fabulously warm Spring days are getting me really antsy for summer!!! I just can’t stop day dreaming about sipping my favorite cocktails poolside.
Recently, I discovered that you can actually make Jack and Coke popsicles. That’s right!!!! One of the best cocktails ever in Popsicle form! Now, these aren't like that time Jack Daniel's made beef jerky, these popsicles actually have booze in them! Enjoy!!
2. Grab your can of Coke and top each section of the mold off.
3. It’s now time to take those popsicle sticks and place them back into the mold.
4. Once you have your mold back together, place your Jack & Coke popsicles in the freezer for several hours.
5. Once your Jack & Coke Popsicles are frozen solid. Rinse your mold off with a little bit of hot water. This will loosen the popsicles just enough to slide right out of the mold without breaking.
Can you believe it?!?! Summer is right around the corner! You know what that means right!?! It’s fruity adult beverage season!!!! WooHoo!!!
One of my all-time favorite drinks is a mimosa. I know, not that original of me! But you know what? You can totally take that classic mimosa and make it taste like summer with watermelon juice. Just swap that OJ for some watermelon and wa-la!!!! You now have a champagne beverage worthy of sitting poolside with you all summer!
• Watermelon Juice ( Tropicana Tastes like candy. Pressed Watermelon Juice tastes like real watermelon!)
Take your bottle of champagne and fill your glass 3 quarters of the way full.
Next, you will want to top of your Champagne glass with watermelon juice. I always recommend Tropicana Watermelon Juice since it’s the most fruity. If you aren’t into sweet juices, you can always opt for a pressed watermelon juice. The pressed juice will be more natural tasting.
Slice up that watermelon for your Champagne glass garnish.
Serve & Enjoy!
So happy spring has finally decided to grace us with its presence here in Western New York!!!! All this decent weather has me craving hot sunny days chillen poolside!!! I can’t wait to kick back on a unicorn float and sip away at my favorite cocktails!
One of my favorite summertime drinks is coconut run! Nothing says sunny fabulous weather like sipping on something fruity! That’s why I decided to turn my favorite summertime liquor into a popsicle!!
•Fresh Lime Juice
The very first thing you are going to want to do is take your popsicle mold apart by removing the popsicle sticks.
Then, fill each section of the mold with a quarter of Malibu Rum. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but the more alcohol you add, the less frozen your popsicle will be. You don’t want a slush puppy! A quarter of Malibu makes the perfect textured popsicle!! Nice and frozen!
Grab your bottle of Sprite and top each section of the mold off.
To make your Malibu Run Popsicles extra tropical, take a like and squeeze a little bit of fresh lime juice into each section.
It’s now time to take those popsicle sticks and place them
back into the mold. Once you have your mold back together, place your popsicles in the freezer for several hours.
Once your popsicles are frozen solid. Rinse your mold off with a little bit of hot water. This will loosen the popsicles just enough to slide right out of the mold without breaking.
Serve & Enjo!
Summer is right around the corner folks!!!! Nothing better than sipping on a delicious cocktail poolside. One of my all time favorite liquors is Parrot Bay!! I even had a bottle of Parrot Bay sitting at my Mimosa Bar in the bridal suite at my wedding.
My all time mixer for Parrot Bay happens to be pineapple juice. The combination makes you feel like you’re on a tropical island vacation!! Just because you can’t afford that trip to Fiji this year doesn’t mean you can’t pretend while floating on your Unicorn float at the pool. Cheers!!!
• Pineapple Juice
Take a normal sized shot glass. Fill the shot glass with Parrot Bay and pour that shot into your martini shaker. No shaker? No problem! Just pour that shot into a large glass. You can use a spoon to mix the cocktail by hand later.
Next, that that pineapple juice and fill your martini shaker.
Once you have your shot of Parrot Bay and your pineapple poured into your martini shaker, close up your shaker and shake away!!!!
One your drink is nice and shaken, grab a martini glass and pour your cocktail!
And just like that, you now have the most tropical drink ready to be sipped on. Now grab that unicorn float and head to the pool with your delicious cocktail. Time pretend you’re on that tropical vacation you have been dreaming of!!! Cheers!
