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

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!
