This is not your traditional Long Island Iced Tea, but it’s close! As you know, there is no actual tea in this, but it looks like Tea and some say it tastes like tea as well. It has a lot of alcohol so it’s not a beginners drink by any means.
1 oz gin
1 oz gold tequila
1 oz vodka
1 oz gold rum
1 oz triple sec
2 drops angostura bitters
1 splash simple syrup
3 oz limeade
1-2 oz cola
Prepare a highball glasses with ice. Next mix your ingredients except the cola in a shaker and shake on ice for about 30 seconds. Strain into your prepared glass and add the cola to top it off. Garnish with a lemon wedge and enjoy!
This drink is pretty tasty and very cool looking too! I added the ingredients in a different order this time with the blue being on top when normally it’s on the bottom. It made for a cool pic! It’s very tropical that’s for sure!
Today we wanted to start off 2016 with a delightful breakfast of cinnamon swirl pancakes, scotch eggs, and mimosas. We had champagne leftover from our New Year’s toast and orange juice so it was very easy to make mimosas.
We got these really cool champagne flutes earlier this year just for our New Year’s toast (and other fun occasions) and we made a slight twist to the classic mimosa.
I first poured about two thirds of the glass full wit champagne and then added the schnapps and orange juice to fill to the top. I added just a splash of grenadine last as it sinks to the bottom and makes for a beautiful looking mimosa!
I got a book called the “Bar Book” from a friend at work a while back and it has a lot of great information about all types of alcohol and the tools and skills needed to make delicious cocktails. One of the drinks in that book is this delightful concoction. It’s called the Pink Fetish, but I like to call it the Orange-berry Refresher. This drink has a simple recipe but a complex taste. To make this drink you will need a shaker, something I don’t often use, but really should.
Ingredients (makes two servings)
3 oz vodka
3 oz peach schnapps
6 oz cranberry juice
6 oz orange juice
Mix all the liquids in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously (for my shaker I had to split the recipe in half). Fill a glass with as much ice as you’d like, I usually like at least half of the glass filled with ice. Once you’re done shaking the liquids, strain it into your glasses. This helps get rid of the foam on top, at least a lot of it. Squeeze a like wedge on top and drop it in. Garnish with another lime wedge if desired and enjoy!
Hello and happy new year! I’ve been on a hiatus from blogging (Levi here) because for a long while my laptop was broken, like physically cracked and irreparable. I got a new laptop on Black Friday, don’t worry I managed to get out completely unscathed haha. The plan was to blog more after I got my new laptop, but I still didn’t because let’s face it I was lazy. Even now I’m writing this on my phone Haha. However, it’s a new year (I know “new year new me” blah blah) and I truly want to be more active in the blogosphere alongside my dearest friend and co-blogger Danielle, who took this idea and ran with it and has been very successful I must say.
This drink we just something I came up with, as most are, but turned out to be delicious!
Here is how to make it:
2 oz raspberry rum
1 oz blue curaçao
First I always start with 4 cubes from ice from a regular plastic ice cube tray and put them in a highball glass; you’ll see why in a moment. Then I pour the hard liquor over the ice. Next I add the blue curaçao. At this point the ice is floating and covering the majority of the surface of the liquid with a nice flat surface of ice since the cubes have a large flat surface. Now I pour the sprite over the ice slowly as not to disturb the mixture too much whilst aiming to hit the surface of the ice and not the liquids already in the glass. This helps ensure you have a nice ombre affect as seen above.
Ah yes…..fall is in the air! And it is time for all things apple and cinnamon!!!!
This sangria is amazing on it’s own or it would be fantastic with an Apple Crisp (recipe soon to come!) We just had this for dessert last night over a rousing dice game! Thanks Alanna 🙂 This recipe makes a pitcher so you can share with a group of friends or family.
750 mL Bottle of Moscato (we used Naked Grape)
3 cups Apple Cider
1 cup Sprite
1/2 cup Caramel Vodka
2 Apples~ Use the sweeter variety. We used some from our strange little tree, we don’t really know what kind they are but I think that Fuji or Pacific Rose would be great.
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 cup of frozen green grapes (use this instead of ice when serving)
Mix everything but the grapes and the soda in a pitcher. Put it in the fridge for at least an hour. Add the soda, pour into glasses and add grapes…..then all you have to do is sit back and enjoy!!
I’m not sure, but I have a feeling that this would also be incredible heated up to enjoy during the super frigid winter 🙂
This drink was a bit of a hodge podge of fruit from a whim; however, it turned out to be delicious! We have made a few drinks from frozen watermelon already, and today when we were shopping we decided to get a pineapple and mix them together. We had to stop by Danielle’s parents’ house and while we were there we got a half of a watermelon and a banana. It was decided to add the banana to the drink as well. At first I thought this was kind of crazy, but was up for the challenge!
All ingredients are mixed in a blender at your desired portions and blended to a smooth consistency. We garnished with a fresh watermelon slice, pineapple slice, and maraschino cherries. Enjoy! We sure did!
Work is about to get very very very crazy for me. So on Sunday all I wanted to do was RELAX and we started having blended tasty beverages in the afternoon while sitting on the deck. It was a really nice day outside and a frozen drink was just the ticket. Also, Levi found a blender hidden in our pantry so we needed to celebrate and give blended drinks a try. We made 2 drinks this afternoon and just had a much needed relaxing day puttering around the house.
I really want to start adding fruit into these to really get that thick blended texture. If you have any suggestions let me know!
This recipe makes a full pitcher:
Fill blender to the top with ice
1 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Blue Curacao
2 oz Coconut Rum
3 oz Peach Rum
1 cup lemonade. (I used my leftover lemonade from when we saw Maleficent the other night!! I freaking loved that movie 🙂
We are definitely trying to figure the best way to set up lighting and a background that will make things look as beautiful and delicious as they are.
We love love love raspberries ❤ We just set up a planter to start our very own raspberry plants and when we actually have the ambition to start planting the full garden you can bet there will be a good chunk of it dedicated to red and golden raspberries. We can not WAIT to be able to just walk out onto the patio and grab some fresh raspberries to garnish our tasty beverages. Here is one of our favorite summer drinks. Perfect to sip out on the patio and watch the sun pass by.
2 oz vodka
1 oz coconut rum
1 oz raspberry liqueur
Pour the liquors over ice and fill the rest of the glass with pink lemonade. Of course it needs a raspberry garnish!! Enjoy 🙂
