Rotten Orange

I'm not sure about all of you, but this house is TOTALLY getting into the Halloween spirit.  Our oldest daughter has known that she wants to be a witch for Halloween since July and our youngest daughter just got a mermaid costume at Costco the other day.  One costume down, hopefully we can borrow a witch costume and then we just need the boys to decide if they are going to dress up this year or not.  

My husband and boys want to make a little "Haunted House" this year for the kids to walk through to get their candy on Halloween night.  They say it will be a work in progress where they add a little to it every year.  Guess that means that the girls and I will hit the street going door to door for treats.

If you missed it.....I BOUGHT A BOTTLE OF BLACK VODKA!!  Last year I saw bottles of black vodka at our local BevMo and never bought one.  This year I was not going to make that mistake!  I am excited to make some cocktails for you all with my black vodka.  I think they layered ones look pretty cool.  This shooter made me do they squinchy face dance because I really tasted the vodka.....and if you didn't know, I'm not big on taking a straight shot of something.........unless it's Fireball......and it's chilled, then it's not as bad.

Here is my recipe for a Rotten Orange:

  • 1 ounce black vodka
  • 1 ounce orange juice
I rimmed a shot glass with orange sprinkles to make it more festive.  In a shot glass pour in the orange juice.  Next layer the black vodka on top and you are done!

Here is to my very first Halloween cocktail of the season!  More to come......

Dingo

Just finished watch the end of the Giants game and am happy to say that Timmy just pitched a No-Hitter!  Unfortunately he got a huge container of powerade dumped on him (that's not the unfortunate part) and the top of the container seems to have knocked him in the back of his head.  After the second container was dumped on him, he ran downstairs into the locker room.  Gosh I hope he's OK.  Poor guy.

I have had my eye on this cocktail for quite some time.  About a week or so ago I was going to make it and then opened up my fridge and notices that I didn't have any OJ left.  Love it when the kids finish stuff and don't tell me about it.....

I found this cocktail over at Hampton Roads Happy Hour.  This cocktail is pretty good.  I have used Southern Comfort in two other cocktails so far.  The first was the Funky Cold Medina.....wasn't a huge fan of that one.  Then I tried it in the cocktail White Christmas, HUGE success!  My husband and I loved it as well as just about all of our friends and family.  Today was time to give So Co another shot (sure there was a little bit of pun there, I'll admit it).  The So Co definitely gave this cocktail a different flavor then I'm used to.  My first sip threw me so I had to take a couple more to really get the taste for it.  It's pretty good.  Not a favorite, or go to cocktail for me, but pretty good.  I'm thinking that if you are a So Co fan, you might just like this one.

Here is the recipe for a Dingo:

  • 1 1/2 ounces light rum
  • 1 ounce Southern Comfort
  • 1 ounce amaretto
  • 1 ounce sweet & sour mix
  • 2 ounces orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce grenadine
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients except for the grenadine.  Shake well and dump everything into a margarita glass.  Pour the grenadine down the side of the glass.

Apple Cider Margarita

Happy Friday everyone!  We've made it, another week in the books.  This week in our home our oldest completed his last day of his Freshmen year of High School.  We officially have a Sophomore!  WAIT...........what??  I just can't believe how quickly these past 15 1/2 years have gone by.  Also on Saturday our second oldest tests for his brown belt in Tae Kwon Do!  We're all super excited about that!  He also only has 2 more weeks of school left until he becomes a 5th grader....breathe.

My girls love drinking apple cider.  We always have an open container in the fridge so I thought, why not use it in a cocktail?  My husband and I have had margaritas on the brain lately, so I decided to try creating an apple cider flavored margarita.

I learned that with this cocktail I had to add more apple cider then I initially thought because the flavor of it just doesn't come out as well as I had thought.  As a last minute idea, I threw some cinnamon into the mixture, which greatly improved it.  This margarita is good.  Not my favorite flavored margarita, but still good.

Here is my recipe for an Apple Cider Margarita:

  • 1 ounce tequila
  • 1/2 ounce cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce orange juice
  • 3 1/2 ounces apple cider
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon
On a separate plate put equal amounts of super fine sugar and ground cinnamon.  Mix it up well and rim your cocktail glass with the mixture.

In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and dump everything into your rimmed cocktail glass.

Here is to a fun filled weekend!  I hope you all enjoy it!

Peeps Paradise

Happy Friday before Easter!  We are once again hosting Easter dinner which we are completely looking forward to.  Easter is our holiday to host and we love having both sides of the family over.  What is even better is that our families get along so well that it just always turns out to be a fun night.

We will have our annual Easter Egg hunt and it is kind of sad this year because we will only have 4 out of 8 kids participating.  One of them will not be here this year, but the other 3 are.....gasp.....too old for it.

I found this recipe in an email from BevMo.  It sounded delicious and I could not wait to try it.  This cocktail, I must say, is GREAT.  I really really like it......I mean really....it's gone already.  Should I make another one?  Perhaps so.  I have not used my banana liqueur in a cocktail in quite some time and now that I have....yea I'm gonna have to create some more cocktails with it because man it's good!

Here is the recipe for a Peeps Paradise:

  • 1 1/2 ounces whipped vodka
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce banana liqueur
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a martini glass and enjoy!!

For those of you who celebrate Easter, have a wonderful holiday!

Easter Margarita

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Our oldest is back to school as his spring break was last week, which means baseball practices and games are in full swing!  Next week starts our second oldest's spring break.  The nice thing about the elementary and middle schools here is that for spring break they (lately) have been getting the week before and the day after Easter off.  Nice!

Today I was online searching for some yummy looking Easter (the word Easter can be typed solely with your left hand) (you totally just tried it didn't ya?) cocktail recipes......and kinda struck out.  Knowing I wanted to make something new for you all, I decided to just close my browser window and create something all of my own.

I have not yet heard of an Easter cocktail with tequila in it, so I decided.....let me be the first (or at least in my world.....I'm sure there are some out there)!  This cocktail is......um, really good!  If you have a crowd on Easter that enjoys tequila......or even if just  you enjoy tequila, this is the cocktail to make.  The juices go quite well with the tequila and the sweet & sour mix adds that perfect finishing touch to your margarita, yum!

Here is my recipe for an Easter Margarita:

  • 1 1/2 ounces cranberry cocktail juice
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • 1 ounce silver tequila
  • 1/2 ounce sweet and sour mix
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Stir it up well and dump everything into your cocktail glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is to yet another choice to make on Easter.  To margarita or not to margarita, THAT is the question!

Halloween Brew

Here we are, the Fifteenth of October.  This month is half over and Halloween is on its way.  This year my two girls are going to be Sofia (from Sofia The First) and Izzy (from Jake and the Never Land Pirates).  These two ladies are VERY VERY excited about Halloween......as I'm sure most kids are.  Our two boys on the other hand (9 & 14), ahh, not as excited.  

This year our 9 year old has decided that he will not be dressing up or trick or treating.  Last night we ran to our local drug store and he saw spray paint for hair and one of those little masks that cover the eyes and nose and decided that he will only do that for Halloween.  OK.......I guess he's growing up faster then I'm ready for.  Our oldest son, 14, hasn't dressed up for a few years now.  This year he is going to a friends house to help his friend and brother scare people as they walk up to their house.........great.

What better way to celebrate the Fifteenth of October then with a Halloween cocktail!  I found this one where I have found many recipes, here on about.com.  This cocktail is OK.  I wouldn't make it again, but it is not horrible.  I may finish it, or I may heat up my coffee..........again......and finish that instead.  All in all, I am still on the hunt for a great cocktail using Pumpkin Pie vodka.

Here's the recipe for a Halloween Brew:

  • 1 ounce pumpkin pie vodka
  • 2 ounces orange juice
  • 1 ounce cranberry cocktail juice
In a short cocktail glass filled 3/4 with crushed ice, pour in all three of your ingredients.  Stir them up well and that's it!

X-Rated Sunrise

Happy Friday to you all!  There goes another week.  It's been a crazy week for us all here and it is not over yet.  I'm looking forward to my husband BBQing dinner tonight though.  In two weeks I have a get together with three ladies that when we were in High School we used to call ourselves the Freaky Foursome.  I created this little BFF drawing where we could write it all in and we were totally cool.  One of these three I get to see at lease once a month when she comes up to visit us.  Another I haven't seen in six years when we all met at the San Diego zoo for the afternoon.  The third one......it's been years!  Sure I've seen her walking to and from her car at her folks house or I've seen her mom and said hello, but I haven't actually seen/sat down with/talked to her.......gosh I'd hate to say since High School......but it just may be that long!  Needless to say, I am really looking forward to having cocktails with these three ladies!!

I gave this cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  Some sips are better then others and they make me want to rate it a 3, but there are too many sips that are 2.5's.  I have never tried X-Rated Fusion before.  I went to their site which is where I got tonight's recipe and found a few different cocktails to choose from.  I had all of the ingredients for this one and that is why I chose it.  I am looking forward to trying some of the cocktails that have vodka in them as well.  This cocktail is OK.  I wouldn't order it and probably wouldn't make it again.

Here is the recipe for an X-Rated Sunrise:

  • 2 ounces X-Rated Fusion
  • 1 ounce silver tequila
  • 2 ounces orange juice


In a tall cocktail glass filled 3/4 with crushed ice pour in your X-Rated Fusion.  Next pour in your tequila and finally your orange juice.  Give it a stir and drink.

Mexi-tini

Mexi-tini
2 shots out of 5


I knew this was going to happen.  May is officially here, which means that this year is officially one third over with.  Yes, I said it, one third over with.  What else does it mean?  Well it means that Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner as well!  In my world it also means that our oldest child will officially (yes I've used the word officially 3 times now) no longer be a middle school student.  Oh Em Gee!!  I can not believe that in a mere few weeks we will (fighting against my fingers not to use the word officially) have ourselves a high school student!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2 shots out of 5.  I wasn't sure what to think when I found this cocktail recipe on about.com, I mean 2 ounces of alcohol with a half an ounce of juice?  Yikes.  My rating was what I thought it might be, but not for the reason I had thought.  I thought these two alcohols together would make me cringe and make horrible faces.  I was wrong.  Mixing these two together kind of removes the flavor aspect of this cocktail.  It is the weirdest thing.  This cocktail had a dull flavor and leaves not the best taste in my mouth.  

If you are up for trying this cocktail for Cinco De Mayo, I hope you like it a lot more then I do.  If you are not up for trying it, you can always choose one of my many margaritas that I have posted on my Classic Margarita post.

Here is the recipe for a Mexi-tini:

  • 1 oz orange vodka
  • 1 oz tequila
  • 1/2 oz orange juice
In a cocktail shaker, add crushed ice and all of the ingredients above.  Let sit for 5 seconds and then shake and strain your cocktail into your martini glass.

Income Tax

Income Tax
2.5 shots out of 5


It's Income Tax Day, it's Income Tax Day!!  That could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on whether or not you are getting or paying money.  I have been so busy this last week I have not been able to post in over a week.......I'm sorry.  We have been putting off doing out taxes (which usually I'm on it as soon as the W2 comes), so we needed to get that done, plus I had my next article due today for the Simply Gluten Free magazine.  Toss those in with too many baseball games, a soccer game, I lost count of the number of practices and 3 days of Tae Kwon Do.........phewph........just typing it out exhausts me!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  My new friend gin.  I had found a few different versions of this cocktail online and decided to go with the one from Kitchenriffs.  This one looked like the best quantities of each ingredient.  This is not a bad cocktail.  The gin does give you that "gin burn" a bit as you swallow it, but it's not too bad.  Vermouths (sweet or dry) usually make me run the other way, but the amount you actually put of them into this cocktail isn't horrid......which is a good thing!  All in all, if you like gin and vermouth, I think you will absolutely like this one!

Here is the recipe for a Income Tax:

  • 1 1/2 oz gin
  • 1/4 oz sweet vermouth
  • 1/4 oz dry vermouth
  • 3/4 orange juice
  • 2 dashes of bitters
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain your cocktail into a martini glass, sit down, sign your taxes and mail them in!

Harvey Wallbanger

Harvey Wallbanger
3.5 shots out of 5


Remember how a few weeks ago the yucky flu swept through our house?  Yea......well, it's back and badder then ever!  This time it touched every single one of us (6 to be exact).  While some of us escaped the fever, some of us (especially 3 of 4) wasn't so lucky.  Our poor oldest little girl had a fever so high that we spend the other night up giving her half hour barely warm baths to bring down her 105.3 fever.  Thankfully, she seems to have "almost" broken her fever now and we all actually slept through the entire night last night!  Hip hip hooray!!!

I gave today's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  I found a few different recipes for this cocktail, but decided on this one by epicurious.  I chose a Harvey Wallbanger for two reasons. 1) I had just bought a bottle of Galliano before the flu started sweeping through the house and have been dying to use it ever since. 2) since I'm still a bit sick, I figured what's better then alcohol and orange juice to help me feel better!  I have got to say this Galliano is like nothing I've ever tasted before.  The aroma and flavor are very unique.  It's amazing how only a half ounce of this stuff can really change the taste of a vodka and orange juice cocktail........especially when it's just under a tenth of the ingredients mixed in.  This would be a cocktail that I just may make again sometime.

Here is the recipe for a Harvey Wallbanger:

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz Galliano
  • 4 oz orange juice
In a medium cocktail glass filled with ice, pour in all of your ingredients and give it a nice stir.

Mexican Morning

Day 347



Mexican Morning
2.5 shots out of 5


Sunday is here and another weekend is just about behind us.  One week left until the Superbowl.  I can not wait to watch that game, it is going to be a good one!  I hope you all had a good weekend.  Did any of you try any new cocktails that I should know about?  If so, please email the recipes to me, I'd love to hear from you.  Oh wait......have I mentioned that I only have 19 days left of my blog?  19!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5.  I found this cocktail on the Finest Call website.  I really had higher hopes for this cocktail, I must say. I was excited to see what tequila and mango puree would taste like together and not that the two couldn't go together.......it's just that all of the ingredients in this cocktail kinda of make it taste like.....nothing.  It's not a super flavorful cocktail at all which is disappointing.  At least it's not a disgusting cocktail that makes me run to sink to dump it out!  

Here is the recipe for a Mexican Morning:

  • 1 oz tequila
  • 1/2 oz peach schnapps
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz mango puree
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and pour everything into a tall glass.

Red & Gold Attack

Day 341



Red & Gold Attack
4.5 shots out of 5


You didn't think I'd leave it at creating only one cocktail for my Niners now did you?  My oldest son made some smoothies with some of my purees today, which gave me an idea to use one in tonight's cocktail.  Since banana is my favorite, and the Niners colors do include gold (which is very close to yellow-ish), I decided to create something with it.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  I created this one on my own and decided to go with some of my yellow juices to keep with the Niners colors.  This cocktail is very scrumptious.....very scrumptious.  I can definitely taste the banana puree in this one, but the rest of the ingredients blend so well with it that it makes this a very good, cold, refreshing cocktail.  I just may make some of these on February 3rd (Superbowl Sunday) along with some of my other Forty Niners creation I made last night, Forty Niner Fever.

Here is my very own recipe for a :

  • 1 1/2 oz light rum
  • 2 oz banana puree
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz cream of coconut
  • 1/4 oz grenadine
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above except for the grenadine.  Shake and pour into a tall glass filled half way with ice.  Pour your grenadine down the middle and enjoy!

Fuzzy Melon

Day 322



Fuzzy Melon
2 shots out of 5


With only a few more days left of Winter break, I am sort of getting sad that the kids will be going back to school soon.......which is odd because usually by now I'm counting down the days until school gets back in.  Speaking of days left of things, I only have 44, YES 44 days left until my Year Of Cocktails is complete.  That totally blows my mind, I swear I can remember when I was only 44 days into my blog.....and what cocktail was that on Day 44 you ask?  Well Alien Urine Sample of course and boy was it good!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 2 shots out of 5.  I found this cocktail pinned on Pinterest and followed it to Make Me A Cocktail.  The first thing I noticed was that their cocktail was green and looking at the ingredients I had a huge feeling mind would be more on the lighter orange/darker yellow side.  Since I haven't really made too many cocktails with watermelon schnapps (one to be exact), I thought I'd give it a try anyways.  Sorry I did.  I still have hope that I will find a cocktail or two that has watermelon schnapps mixed in it that I will really like.  Fingers crossed.

Here is the recipe for a Fuzzy Melon:

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz peach schnapps
  • 1/2 oz watermelon schnapps
  • 1 1/2 oz orange juice
  • 1/2 oz pineapple juice
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a cocktail glass.

What Crisis?

Day 310



What Crisis?
4.5 shots out of 5


Well the day is here.  The supposed End Of The World.......even though it has been predicted to end a time or two before, I have a HUGE hunch that we will all be OK and more importantly be able to continue with this Year Of Cocktails!  I'll drink to that......oh wait, I already did.

I gave tonight's this early afternoon's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  This shooter is a little bit sweet I will absolutely admit it, but in shooter form (versus cocktail form) it is not bad at all.  All four of these ingredients blend well together to give you a nice (sweet) taste in your mouth.  This is the perfect shooter to have if ever the world was going to end.  I have heard that there will be a few "End Of The World" parties going on tonight, if you are hosting or attending one this shooter would be a good one to serve while you all cheers the Not End Of The World!  I found this early afternoon's cocktail at the columbiatribune.

Here is the recipe for a What Crisis?:

  • 1/2 oz peach schnapps
  • 1/2 oz midori
  • 1/2 oz orange juice
  • 1/2 oz cranberry juice
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain your cocktail into a shot glass.

Rock Lobster

Day 270



Rock Lobster
2 shots out of 5


Today is a beautiful day.  A day that makes me want to pull out my blender and blend up a cocktail.  I went on a hunt for a blended cocktail and found a recipe for a Rock Lobster cocktail here.  I was excited to drink it outside in the sunshine.  Then I tasted it.

I gave tonight's cocktail 2 shots out of 5.  As a lot of your know, I love banana liqueur in my cocktails.  Never thought I would like it at the beginning of my blog, but I have to say this blog has changed my thoughts when it comes to alcohol.  Unfortunately this cocktail is one cocktail that I am not thrilled about.  All I really taste is my 1/2 of a ripe banana and the water from the ice.  I will not ever be making this cocktail again.  Ever.

Here is the recipe for a Rock Lobster:

  • 1 1/2 oz coconut rum
  • 3/4 oz banana liqueur
  • 1 C ice
  • 1/8 oz grenadine
  • 1/8 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/8 oz orange juice
  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1/4 oz dark rum
In a blender add all of the ingredients above except for the dark rum.  Blend them up and pour them into your cockail glass.  Top with your dark rum.

Thanksgiving Cocktail

Day 261



Thanksgiving Cocktail
3.5 shots out of 5


I get to go on a date night with my husband tonight!!!!  These occurrences are RARE, so I get totally excited when they actually happen!!  We'll be celebrating our anniversary a day late, but at least we get to celebrate it!

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  This cocktail I whipped up myself, I figured that orange and cranberry would go good with the pumpkin flavor in the vodka.  This is not a super sweet, super flavorful cocktail.  This is a nice subtle cocktail where you can sit back and enjoy it's cold refreshingness (I love it when I type my own versions of words like "refreshingness" and it immediately gets a red squiggly line underneath it......like "Hey, that's not a real word!".  If you know me you know I speak Jen-eese where I make up my own words at times) and also taste the hints of all of the ingredients mixed with in it.  This is a safe cocktail, in which I mean it doesn't have that face squinching alcohol taste, it isn't super sweet where you are kind of dreading the next sip, it's just a nice cocktail.

Here is my recipe for a Thanksgiving Cocktail:

  • 1 1/2 oz Pinnacle Pumpkin Pie Vodka
  • 2 oz cranberry cocktail juice
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 1/8 oz grenadine
In a tall cocktail glass filled with ice, pour in all of your ingredients.  Stir your cocktail up well and enjoy.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to Pinnacle's Pumpkin Pie Vodka!  I even tasted the vodka on it's own before I made tonight's cocktail and I must say, it tastes good!  I can taste the pumpkin pie flavor in the vodka for sure.

Kinky Sunsation

Day 245



Kinky Sunsation
3.5 shots out of 5


I totally missed it.  Last night was my two-thirds mark for my blog!  Happy two-thirds of a year to us all!  I figured I'd try some more Kinky Liqueur tonight and went to Pinterest to find my next cocktail.  I found it on their "Kinky Liqueur Recipes" board.

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  This is a pretty good cocktail.  I would order it at a bar, only if I had too many sweet cocktails and needed something a little blander to end the night with.  Not saying this cocktail is bland.........I just wouldn't classify it as a sweet or absolutely delicious cocktail.  It's just one of those safe cocktails that if you can't figure out what to order, you can't loose with a Kinky Sunsation.

Here is the recipe for a Kinky Sunsation:

  • 2 oz Kinky Liqueur
  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz orange juice
In a cocktail glass filled 3/4 with ice, add all of the ingredients above.  Stir your cocktail and you're done.
