Top 10 Drinks for Summer

It's the last day of school in my area. Time for relaxing by the pool during the day, languid summer evenings, beach parties, bar-b-ques and camping trips. It occurred to me the other day that while I've shared many of my favorite drink recipes in the past few years, it might be nice to compile them… Continue reading Top 10 Drinks for Summer

Dirty Vodka Martini

Any day is a good day for a dirty vodka martini. June 15th is an exceptionally good day. It's the day I remember a man named Jeffrey. Most called him JD. He was my husband's dad. I called him Jeff. He just referred to me as "the girl". He was funny and crazy and I… Continue reading Dirty Vodka Martini

Better Than Childhood Fruit Punch

Do you remember Hi C fruit punch? Getting bright red smile lines from the corners of your lips up to your cheeks? Do they even sell that stuff anymore? Probably not with all the sweeteners and dyes I'm sure it was made from. Apparently such things are horrific and we were lucky to survive childhood… Continue reading Better Than Childhood Fruit Punch

Blue Ballz

The title of this drink truly irritates me. I hate it when normal words are spelled incorrectly on purpose to make them "interesting". For me, it only serves to make a word totally annoying. As if the English language isn't odd enough, I have to explain to my kids why some marketing "genius" decided to… Continue reading Blue Ballz

She threw together this little drink while we were visiting and it was delicious! We decided to name it the Kihei Killer. Enjoy! Kihei Killer from Bethany's Bar 2 ounces pina colada mix 2… Continue reading Kihei Killer

Bikini Martini

I stumbled upon this drink and thought it was only fitting to share as I will soon be basking on the warm sand of a Hawaiian beach. I am not genetically blessed, or maybe just didn't appropriately apply coconut body lotion while pregnant and as such, I will not be in a bikini - but… Continue reading Bikini Martini

Powerful Pomtini

This is my current absolute favorite drink. I love it. During all the parties of the holidays I made giant batches of it and brought it with me everywhere. It's potent and perfectly pom-licious. I warn you though - I've seen 6' 4" men succumb to the power of these "tinis". They think it's a… Continue reading Powerful Pomtini

Lemon Drop Martini

A good lemon drop martini is a perfect balance of tart and sweet. It should have enough vodka to give it a slightly dry martini feel in your mouth, but enough juice and sweetness to be utterly refreshing. This is my version. I think it's pretty much perfect. I came up with this recipe because… Continue reading Lemon Drop Martini

Clear Cosmos

I really enjoy making drinks with my own spin on them. I also love anything I can make in a giant batch and bring to a party. I have a to-go container with a lid that I bring along with me to add a little cheer wherever I'm going. It holds almost a gallon of… Continue reading Clear Cosmos
