Remembrance

Where were you 13 years ago today?  Do you remember?  I do.  I was on my way to work, I had just dropped off our oldest (then 2 1/2 years old) at his daycare.  I hopped back into the car, turned on the radio and my heart stopped there for a second.  What is this?  Is this a joke?  Are the radio announcers pulling one over on me?  It took me a couple minutes to realize what had happened.  I got to work and the TV's were on.  Things were a lot quieter then they usually were around the shop.  Then I saw the videos, oh my goodness......I heard about it on the radio, but until I actually saw it on the TV.....it just became real.  Our nation has done a lot of healing since then, yet there is much more to do.  My heart goes out to all of the families who have lost loved ones on this day 13 years ago.  To all of those who are still with us, yet were traumatized by this horrific event.  To all of those who's lives will never be the same.  My heart goes out to you all, America.

In honor of "remembering" this day 13 years ago, I wanted to create a cocktail to honor our great nation.  I call it "Remembrance".  I initially wanted to make a layered cocktail, but that failed, so I just went with it and kept mixing.  This is a mix of red (hardness & valour), white (purity and innocence) and blue (vigilance, perseverance & justice) alcohols and mixes.

Here is my recipe for Remembrance:

  • 2 ounces cherry vodka
  • 3 ounces lemon-lime soda
  • 1/2 ounce grenadine
  • 1 ounce blue curacao
Fill a cocktail glass 3/4 with ice.  In a shaker, add the vodka and lemon-lime soda.  Shake and strain into the glass.  Add the blue curacao and grenadine.  Give it a stir and enjoy!

Here's to our great nation!

Sapphire Alpine

Happy Wednesday!  In case you were wondering.......tomorrow's my birthday!  Thrillsville.  Ha, no I meant yeay it's my birthday tomorrow, but you know.....once you have kids (or at least for me) you kind of really don't care a whole lot about your birthday.  I honestly don't know it's coming until the kids get wind of it, and then they talk about it over and over and over.  Then I realize....Dang it's been another year, hasn't it?

We have 2 days left until the 4th of July!  We all love that holiday around here.  If you need to be inspired with more Red, White & Blue things for the 4th, here are my Pinterest boards for you to take a look at: My Patriotic Cocktails & Shooters, Patriotic Yummies and Patriotic Crafts.

Sticking with the gin theme, I wanted to find a blue cocktail to make as the 4th approaches.  I found this cocktail at about.com.  Well I'll tell you.....it's blue for sure.....I even have some blue under a couple of my nails.  This cocktail kinda.......tingles/burns the back of my throat (how's that for honesty).  It's flavor is...OK, I do taste all of the ingredients...but I have to say that these three ingredients have been in better cocktails.  Well, like I said.....it's blue for sure!

Here is the recipe for a Sapphire Alpine:

  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1 ounce blue curacao
  • 1 ounce peach schnapps
In a shaker, add ice and all three of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a martini glass.

Here's to everyone having a wonderful Fourth of July!  I hope you have time to celebrate and maybe even see some fireworks!

Funky Cold Medina

Day 350



Funky Cold Medina
2 shots out of 5


Can I just tell you that I was thinking about how far I've come with my blog today and realized that I only have sixteen more days left of my year?  Sixteen, that's two days more then two weeks, WOW.  That is kind of amazing to me because I vividly remember making my sixteenth cocktail, The Dirty Grinch.  I remember thinking that it would be an eternity until I actually had sixteen days left.......and here we are!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2 shots out of 5.  I found this cocktail at Hampton Roads Happy Hour.  Unfortunately I didn't like tonight's cocktail as much as I liked my sixteenth cocktail, but you can't win them all.  This recipe says that you can stir in the cranberry juice if you would like, but it's your choice.  STIR IT IN!  No choice, it must be stirred.  Stirring it in will insure that you will be making less funny faces after each sip.  I totally remember this song being over-played on the radio growing up......but I can't say that I like the cocktail.

Here is the recipe for a Funky Cold Medina:

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz blue curacao
  • 1 oz Southern Comfort
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
In a shaker, add ice and the first three ingredients above.  Shake well and dump your cocktail and ice into a good sized cocktail glass.  Pour the cranberry juice on top and choose whether you want to stir it in or not, I HIGHLY recommend you stirring it in.

Well Tone Loc, here's to song that reminds me of my younger years and a cocktail that will make me forget.

Blue Blue Christmas

Day 312



Blue Blue Christmas
2.5 shots out of 5


Merry Christmas Eve Eve, to those of you who celebrate Christmas.......or to those of you who love the movie Elf.  Our.........house..........is..........buzzing...........with.......... EXCITEMENT!!  The fact that tomorrow is Christmas Eve and the next day Christmas Day.....wowzers, these kids almost can't stand it!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  I found this recipe at recipe.com.  They gave me a choice of vodka or rum, so I went with rum.  I'm honestly not sure that it would have made any difference in my rating if I would have chosen vodka.  This cocktail is not horrible and it's not great.  This cocktail is one that I will completely forget about in a few minutes.  It doesn't have a whole lot of flavor unfortunately and that's what makes it ho-hum.  I guess that's why they call it Blue Blue Christmas, because if you drink it and not a scrumptious cocktail like my White Christmas (which we had AGAIN last night) or Candy Cane Martini, then your Christmas will be blue.

Here is a the recipe for a Blue Blue Christmas:

  • 2 oz rum
  • 2 oz white cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz blue curacao
  • 1/4 oz lime juice
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain your cocktail into a chilled martini glass.  I put a couple little orange peels on the rim of the glass......for looks.

Here's to never having this cocktail again!

Coco Snowball

Day 286



Coco Snowball
4 shots out of 5


Yes another blue cocktail!  Not as dark as others I've made, but blue non the less.  Today I had breakfast with my youngest and our dear friend Stephanie and her youngest.  Everything was great.....except for this odd moving scarecrow that was on the booth we were sitting at.  It's nose......was........well, big, long and very very odd looking.  I had to turn it away from us and unplug it as my daughter was getting a little too freaked out because of it.  Besides that, we had a great time!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  I must say I sucked that thing down pretty darn fast.  I thought it would have more of a coconut taste to it I'll admit.  I was able to taste the coconut from both the rum and cream, as well as the vanilla vodka flavor.  All three of those ingredients were accounted for.......I just wish that one of them had a little bit more of a presence then the others.  I found this cocktail on Pinterest and followed it to a blog that led me to another site, wedding blog by the breakers.  I didn't have the coconut shavings that they used to rim their martini glass, and wasn't quite sure about the "Coco Lopez" they used.  I searched for it online and found cream of coconut, as well as coconut juice and coconut milk........so I'm not even sure if I'm using the exact ingredients they used.  Since I had cream of coconut on hand, that's what I used.

Here is the recipe for a Coco Snowball:

  • 1 oz vanilla vodka
  • 1 oz coconut rum
  • 1 oz cream of coconut
  • 1/8 oz blue curacao
Rim a martini glass with blue sparkly sugar sprinkles........only if you want.  In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain your cocktail into your rimmed martini glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to blue cocktails and coconut flavors in them.  I enjoy drinking both.

Penalty Shot

Day 235



Penalty Shot
2.5 shots out of 5


Amazing win by our San Francisco 49ers!  Way to go boys!  Thanks to your win I used my 49ers shot glass and hat for tonight's cocktail.  (Yes I know that there is no such thing as a penalty shot in football).  Now up is our San Francisco Giants in Game 2 of the playoffs.  I hope we win this one after last nights loss.  Another sports filled weekend both with my boys and our home town teams.  Along with the sports we've been hearing the Blue Angels flying overhead all weekend long.

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  The flavor of this shooter......is interesting.  It reminds me of something and I can't think of what it is.  In a weird way I almost taste a hint of minty licorice or something?  This is not a fabulous flavor that has me wanting another one by far.  It's not horribly horrible, but I do think it's name serves it right........it is a definite penalty shot.  One I'm not sure I'd like to have too many of I tell you.  I got tonight's recipe here.

Here is the recipe for a Penalty Shot:

  • 1/2 oz Midori
  • 1/2 oz blue curacao
  • 1/2 oz triple sec
In a shot glass pour all of your ingredients and give it a stir.

Blue Balls

Day 219



Blue Balls
5 shots out of 5


I can't believe I made it to another Friday!  These weeks have really been crazy.  I don't feel like I've stopped going since soccer season has started....... seriously.  Tonight's cocktail is soooo absolutely positively needed, and boy is it a good one!

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  Even though it's got one of those "names" that not too many people would want to shout across the bar to the bartender, I'll tell you, it's worth it!!  These 4 ingredients are extremely delicious together.......I told my husband to try it......(he said he didn't like the name, but he'd try it anyways) and I secretly hoped that he wouldn't want to try it so that I could have it all to myself.  Oh well.  This is a shooter that I could have a few of......in a row.......which may or may not be a good idea.  I got tonight's cocktail from the intoxicologist site, so Thank You once again Cheri for an amazing cocktail!

Here is the recipe for a Blue Balls:

  • 1/2 oz Blue Curacao
  • 1/2 oz coconut rum
  • 1/2 peach schnapps
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
In a shaker, add ice and the ingredients above.  Shake it up well and strain your mixture into a shot glass.

Blue Lagoon

Day 157


Blue Lagoon
2.5 shots out of 5


Holy Insanely Hot Day!  We took our two girls (3 and 1) to Happy Hollow today (an amusement park/zoo for little ones).  It was a GREAT day and everyone really enjoyed themselves......only problem was the fact that it was 91 degrees out and the little ones were totally done by the end......or is that a bad thing?

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  Another blue cocktail!  Yeay!  But that's where the "yeay" ends.  I needed to find a blended cocktail because it's too hot to think of a martini right now, so I found this cocktail here.  Wasn't feeling like vodka today, but gave it a shot anyways.  I can totally taste the vodka.  The pineapple juice does mask it a bit and the blue curacao....well it adds a nice color.  The vodka is a bit much for me, so I'm not terribly enjoying this cocktail all that much.  Oh well.  Sometimes blue cocktails are fun.......sometimes they're not, so is life.  If you have a favorite cocktail that you would like me to try, please email it to me!  I love hearing from you all and receiving cocktail recipes from you as well!

Here is the recipe for a Blue Lagoon:

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz blue curacao
In a blender add 3/4 cup of ice (I used 1 cup and it came out a bit thick) and all of the ingredients above.  Blend up your cocktail until the ice is gone, pour and enjoy.

Blue Breeze

Day 154



Blue Breeze
3.5 shots out of 5


I can not believe it, but in a little less then a month, I will be half way done with my Year of Cocktails!  If I stop and think........it amazes me that I've found or been given, made, photographed and tried 154 cocktails........154!!  I'm not sure if that's amazing........or crazy?  I'll go with amazing!

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  This is a simple tasting cocktail.  The whipped cream vodka flavor really comes out in this one.  It's flavor is simple and does not make your taste buds dance around in your mouth like some of the fruitier or sweeter cocktails do.  It's an enjoyable cocktail, but not one I'd spend $9 at a bar on.........if and when I do go to a bar I'd want to spend my money on a cocktail that makes me want to double fist (a term I learned at our local BJ Brewery, meaning having a drink in each hand.  Apparently there you need to completely "finish" your beer before you can even think about ordering another one.....kinda lame in my book) it by ordering another on the spot.

Here is the recipe for a Blue Breeze:

  • 1 oz. whipped cream vodka
  • 1/2 oz blue curacao
  • 4 oz sprite (lemon-lime soda)
In a shaker add ice and all ingredients above.  Shake it well and strain it into a cocktail glass filled 3/4 with ice.

Purple Nurple

Day 105


Purple Nurple
3 shots out of 5


OK, first thing's first.  This cocktail is NOT purple.  A dark blue color......yes......but purple....no.  Oh well, I suppose life must go on.  Hope you are all enjoying the last couple days of May.  Not quite sure where January-May went.....perhaps these nightly cocktails have something to do with that?

I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5.  Not a bad cocktail.  I think I taste the orange liqueur and/or blue curacao the most in this cocktail, but that's ok.  I was really hoping for a purple color (hence the name), but I know it's hard to make.  The pink color in cranberry juice can never compare to the blue curacao, it's just too thick and the cranberry juice is too thin to be able to make a good purple color.  Oh well.  I think this cocktail would be a good idea for a wedding shower or baby shower where that true blue color is one of the theme colors.  You could have them already made and sitting on a table for the guests to enjoy.  You could also add a little bit of champagne to it to give it that bubbly look.

Here is the recipe for a Purple Nurple:


  • 1 shot coconut rum
  • 1 shot orange liqueur
  • 1/2 shot blue curacao
  • 2 shots cranberry juice
In a shaker add ice, rum, orange liqueur, blue curacao and cranberry juice.  Shake it up real good and strain it into your cocktail glass.

Red White & Blue Shooter

Day 103



Red White & Blue Shooter
2.5 shots out of 5


Happy Memorial Day to those of you who live in the USA.  What a well needed holiday weekend that was!  My boys only have 2 weeks of school left and this was a good break from the crazy last few weeks we've been having!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  Filling my shot glass up 1/3 of the way with grenadine had me not wanting to try this, because I thought it would taste too grenadiney-syrupy.  I actually tasted the peach schnapps and blue curacao more then the grenadine though, I must say.  This shot wasn't horrible at all.  It wasn't my favorite cocktail in the world either......it just laid somewhere in between.  I tried my "hardest" to layer this one, I really did!!  All of the different versions I saw of this shot had the perfect layers in them......not mine.  My grenadine went well (could you imagine if it didn't?  Then I'd really suck at this), then came the peach schnapps........yea, not so well.......but the blue curacao floated on top just fine.  Oh well......maybe after another 103 days I'll get the hang of this....

Here is the recipe for Red White & Blue Shooter:

  • 1/3 shot blue curacao
  • 1/3 shot peach schnapps
  • 1/3 shot grenadine
In a shot glass pour your grenadine, then over the back of a spoon tilted down toward the side of the shot glass, slowly pour your peach schnapps.  Again on the back of that same spoon held the same way, pour your blue curacao slowly.

Aqua Thunder

Day 92


Aqua Thunder
4.5 shots out of 5


I went online to the Midori website and found tonight's cocktail.  Aqua Thunder had one of my favorite liqueurs included in it's ingredients, therefore.........I had to try it!  Glad I did too!  This is a pretty darn good cocktail.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  The first sip I smelled the Midori and tasted the lemon juice.  WOW that was intense.  The sips to follow were a good blend of all of the ingredients.  I wonder if I was nervous about the 1/2 shot of lemon juice I added to this cocktail and that's why I could really taste it in my first sip.  Whatever the reason, I am really enjoying the combination of all of these ingredients.  I think I just might have to reference the Midori site in the future to find another great cocktail.  I hope those of you who enjoyed the Alien Urine Sample will try this one, because I think you will like it!

Here is the ingredients for Aqua Thunder:

  • 1 shot Midori
  • 1/2 shot blue curacao
  • 1/2 shot banana liqueur
  • 1/2 shot lemon juice
  • 1/3 shot of club soda
In a tall glass filled almost to the top with ice, add your midori, blue curacao, banana liqueur and lemon juice.  Stir it up gently (not sure why, but that's what the site said to do).  Top it off with the club soda and enjoy!

Mother Goose Cocktail

Day 88


Mother Goose
4 shots out of 5


Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mom's out there!  May is just about half over.....which means that......somehow......the year is over a third gone!  I swear every year goes by faster then the one before it.  We celebrate New Years and then I turn around.......and there's the next New Years on the horizon!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  What better way to celebrate Mother's Day, then with the Mother of them all, Mother Goose!  Nope I'm not enjoying a pink or purple cocktail on Mother's Day.  I'm enjoying a sort of bright green one!  This cocktail is pretty darn good!  Another Midori masterpiece!  Since we have a busy afternoon and evening ahead of us, I'm enjoying my cocktail right now at 1:30 (don't judge) in the afternoon!  I hope that all of the mom's are able to take a few minutes (or if you're like my mom a half an hour) to sit back and enjoy a cocktail of your liking today!  Thank you Mother Goose for all of your stories and yummy cocktail!  I always wondered how she handled hanging out with all of those kids everyday!  

Here is the recipe for Mother Goose:

  • 1 shot raspberry vodka
  • 2 shots melon liqueur
  • 1 shot sweet & sour mix 
  • dash of blue curacao
In a shaker add ice, raspberry vodka, melon liqueur, sweet & sour mix and blue curacao.  Shake it up real good to get them all mixed up.  Strain into a chilled martini glass and enjoy!

Blue Ocean

Day 82


Blue Ocean
2.5 shots out of 5


Another cocktail I found on Pinterest was the Blue Ocean.  It looked yummy and had a cute tropical flower to garnish it, so hey why not give it a shot.  Sometimes it amazes me just how much  some of these cocktails get around that site just because of how good they "look".  

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  It was ok.  Nothing fabulous.  Yes it's blue.  Yes that looks fun, but as I learned in my Silk Panties post ""blue caraçao doesn't make "every" cocktail taste good".  That being said, it wasn't horrible.  I wouldn't order it at a bar or make it again at home, but I did want to try it.........and try it I did.  Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  I had a fun weekend celebrating a good friends birthday.  We went to an amazing place for dinner that has a hundred and some odd beers on tap and has an equally amazing cocktail list!  I tasted 3 of my friends cocktails which were suuuuper good, and ordered a hurricane myself.......ahh, it was pretty good, but doesn't compare to Husbands Hurricane!

Here is the recipe for Blue Ocean:

  • 1 shot vodka 
  • 1/2 shot blue curacao
  • 1/3 shot grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 shot simple syrup
In a shaker add ice, vodka, blue curacao, grapefruit juice and simple syrup.  Shake it up real good.  In a brandy snifter (I just learned today from another good friend of mine that it's called a snifter and not a sniffer like I said in my Tequila Sunrise.  She was kind enough to not call me out on it here, but I wanted to Thank her for telling me now instead of letting me continuously call it the wrong thing for the rest of the year!  Thanks Marisa!!) add ice and strain your cocktail into the glass.

Alien Urine Sample Drink

Day 44


Alien Urine Sample
5 shots out of 5


I am really enjoying this Alien Urine Sample!  Yes I said it, it's really good!!!  My bartenders book has some mighty interesting named cocktails, but boy are some of them really good!  This is a very very yummy cocktail that I will definitely be making again.  OK, is it too soon to make another one now?

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  This is a very refreshing cocktail and one that's fun to drink.  Alien Urine Sample has a good mix of a few different liqueurs that makes this cocktail super yummy.  The color of it can be a little intimidating (another neon colored cocktail like the Liquid Marijuana I made not too long ago), but boy is it good!!  If you have been enjoying the same cocktails that I have been so far, you'll definitely need to try this one!!

Here are the ingredients for Alien Urine Sample:

  • 1/2 shot coconut rum
  • 1/2 shot melon liqueur
  • 1/2 shot banana liqueur
  • 1/2 peach schnapps
  • 2 shots sweet & sour juice
  • soda water
  • 1/2 shot blue curaçao
In a shaker fill with ice and add coconut rum, melon liqueur, banana liqueur, peach schnapps and sweet & sour mix.  Shake it up really good to mix everything together.  Pour everything into a tall glass, add a splash of soda water and blue curaçao.  Enjoy!!!!


Here is a photo of the end result:

Liquid Marijuana Cocktail

Day 38



Liquid Marijuana
5 shots out of 5



OK, so I've seen this cocktail ALL OVER Pinterest and I just had to try it!  One of my best friends has been asking me to making this one as well, so here it is!!  Can I just say YUMMY!!!!  Here's to  learning yet another thing about cocktails.........I actually like sweet & sour mix!  I guess I was scared of sweet & sour mix because it reminded me of regular margaritas.....which in turn reminded me of....<gags> tequila!!  Yes, yes, I do know that I will have to make cocktails with tequila in them, and because of that I have to admit that I DID purchase a bottle of it today.  

Tequila and I had a face off about 15 years ago, and I am ashamed to admit..... tequila won.  It has made me NOT like it and run from it's smell for the past 15 years.  There has been an occasion or 5 where I got up enough courage to have a shot of it again since that horrible night.....but I never drank NEARLY as much of it as I did that one night 15 years ago.  Yes......yes, I did have one night about 4 years ago where I was a little off and had a few shots of the stuff......that night didn't end well either.

Anyways, I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  I am enjoying this cocktail a lot!  The sweet & sour mix is really giving it a surprisingly good taste!  I have a feeling that this cocktail will be requested at our next friend gathering.  I recommend you try this cocktail and I really hope you like it as much as, or even half as much as I do!

Here is the recipe for Liquid Marijuana:

  • 1/2 shot Malibu Rum
  • 1/2 light rum
  • 1/2 shot blue curaçao (this time it makes the cocktail good, haha)
  • 1/2 shot apple pucker
  • 2 1/2 shots sweet & sour mix
  • 2 1/2 shots pineapple juice
In a tall glass fill it up 3/4 to the top with ice.  Pour in your Malibu Rum, light rum, blue curaçao, apple pucker, sweet & sour mix and pineapple juice.  Stir it up really good and enjoy!

Blue Duck Cocktail

Day 37



Blue Duck
1....0 shots out of 5



HOLY MOLY this cocktail is HORRIBLE!!  Absolutely horrible!!  The first thing I thought when I tasted it was that it reminded me of some nasty stuff they used to use in the dentist office.  I don't even know how to describe tonight's cocktail except say, if anyone EVER offers you a Blue Duck, slap them across the face and run for your life!!!!

This drink is bleh.  Oh my goodness!  Like I said when I made my Silk Panties cocktail and I listed 8 things that I have learned so far by creating this blog, ""blue caraçao doesn't make "every" cocktail taste good such as in the Into The Blue cocktail"", well the same thing can be said about tonight's cocktail.  Just because it's blue doesn't for one second mean that it tastes good......at all!!  Yikes, I feel like gargling with salt water.  Anyways, I would HIGHLY recommend that you do NOT try tonight's cocktail.......ever.

Here is the recipe (but don't ever use it) for a Blue Duck:

  • 2 shots vanilla vodka
  • 1 shot blue curaçao
  • a dash of Chambord
In a shaker (again, never make this cocktail) add ice, vodka and blue curaçao and shake it (or pour it down the sink) until the two are blended and cold.  In a martini glass, strain your cocktail and float your chambord on the top of your cocktail.  If you look closely at the photo below, you'll see that I "tried" to float my chambord on top, but all it did was sink to the bottom.  The very bottom of my martini glass has a little bit of a purpley/marooney looking color to it.


Here is a photo of the end result:




Here is a photo of the ingredients:






I'm sooo glad none of my readers sent me this recipe, because I would feel real bad if they had and had raved about how good it is and how it's their favorite cocktail.

Cheers to tomorrow night being a million times better.......in the cocktail department!!
