Spring fever and cocktails…

Today I learned there are scary, scary things in this world. Things that could make a grown man cry. That’s right kids, today I learned about mocktails. And guess what? I don’t approve. Spring Fever is in full effect since NYC temperatures are soaring and no faux cocktail recipe is going to be making its way into this blog.

So here is a no nonsense cocktail named April Rain for your drinking pleasure. Enjoy the weekend! XOXO

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth

Pour everything into a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice, then shake shake shake. Top off your glasses, and enjoy a taste of Spring in February.

Shaken, not stirred: The Winter Angel

Friday’s are the perfect day of the week to get your friends together, grab some liquor and drink a cocktail or two or three. Since there’s another storm coming I thought you’d appreciate ‘The Winter Angel.’ You’re welcome loves. XOXO

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 1/2 ounces vodka

  • 1 1/2 ounces Calvados (or any apple brandy)

  • 2 ounces freshly juiced apples (or store bought apple juice if you’re feeling lazy.)

If you have a Martini shaker fill it with ice, then shake, shake, shake. And if you don’t, fill a cup with ice and swirl it around. Pour into the eagerly awaiting glasses and toast to the weekend.

Happy Friday!

Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker for Andie

“I looked down at my glass and noticed it was empty. Strange, I don’t remember drinking that. I guess it wouldn’t hurt to pour a little more. I’ll just put some extra ice in it. I figured since I already had two itty bitty glasses of Limoncello, I might as well have a touch more and topped off my cup.”

Everything’s better with wine

I think one should always reward themselves after a long day of writing with a chilled glass of liquid relief. Enjoy some pictures of my guilty pleasure. Have a wine filled wonderful weekend! This is dedicated to the main character Andie and her affinity for all things that come in a bottle.
