Untraditional Long Island Iced Tea

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
  • Lemon wedge

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! 


Sansa’s Hope- A Game of Thrones Inspired Drink

Sansa’s Hope

Inspired the sweetness of the beautiful redhead, Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones. We created this drink while binge watching the first 2 seasons. As the series progresses I think that the character of Sansa is greatly developed. She goes through so much heartbreak and torment, and she is coming out stronger! I do believe that it may be time to honor this character with a drink that has evolved along with her.

  • 1 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1oz Raspberry Liqueur
  • 1oz Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmellow Vodka
  • 1oz Cherry Liqueur

Pour over ice and fill the rest of the glass with Minute Maid Fruit Punch. Garnish with cherries. Enjoy!!!

Cranberry Lime Cocktail

Merry Christmas to all!!! I hope everything has had a wonderful year! I know that I have 😀This is my first post from my Christmas present from my wonderful sister! An iPad mini is going to be a great asset in the kitchen for looking up recipes and taking pictures and even typing up blogs without having to drag my laptop out to the living room.

I am also excited to take pictures with the beautiful decorations I got for the table. Levi got me some really beautiful candle hurricanes and a deco reindeer.

This year was really special because I got to have Christmas in my home with my parents and with Levi! It’s been a great day so far, can’t wait to start cooking our dinner feast. In the meantime we’re taking a little rest and watching Cinderella and having an afternoon refresher!

I know that cranberry ginger ale won’t be available all year round, so you can mix cranberry juice and ginger ale together.

Fill your favorite glass halfway with ice. Mix in:

  • 1 oz Cranberry vodka
  • 1 oz Lime Rum
  • 2 oz Cranberry Gingerale
  • 1 oz Limade
  • Limes for garnish

Happy holidays to you and yours and may the Christmas cheer last all year!

Orange-berry Refresher

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
  • Lime wedges

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!
