Get me a cocktail!

Grey Goose martini. Dirty. Extra olives - that's me.
Ever have one of thoooose weeks? You know the kind... you're workin it hard core at the office, juggling a ton of personal projects at home and are just in desperate need of a DRINK?!? Well, I am having one of thoooose weeks and if you're there with me, have I got the post for you! No expert mixologists needed, just stop at the liquor store on your way home and whip up a little something to take the edge off tonight.
Blended Raspberry Cocktail
1/2 cup ice or several ice cubes; 8 ounces Minute Maid Light Raspberry Passion; 1 1/2 ounces vodka. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better (or easier) than that - this lil cocktail is just 115 calories! (I might try adding a few crushed raspberries for extra berry goodness).

"Grown Up" Root Beer Float
Two ways to make this bad boy: 1. Root beer (I like Diet A&W Root Beer best), Pinnacle Whip vodka and a dollop of vanilla ice cream to top it off (whipped cream works too!); or 2. if Pinnacle is too "flavored" for your taste buds, switch it out for plain vanilla vodka. Makes a sweet treat that will leave you feeling saucy:)

The Cayman Lemonade
Watch out ladies... this one's gonna go down easy! A few more ingredients than I usually prefer, this cocktail seems worth the effort - 1 oz Vodka; 1 oz Triple Sec; 1 oz Peach Schnapps; Cranberry juice; and Club Soda. Mix the vodka, triple sec and peach schnapps in a shaker, pour over ice, add a squeeze of lime, a splash of cranberry juice and club soda, stir and enjoy. (Easy peasy imitation: Crystal Light lemonade, vodka, splash of club soda. BOOM!)


  1. That adult Root Beer float sure sounds tasty. Perfect for a bbq?

  2. Kathleen, it is FABULOUSNESS in a glass - perfect for BBQs! Enjoy!!
