Coffee Talk Tuesday - Cocktails

Today let's talk about Cocktails  

I have to admit I'm not much of a drinker....Let me explain, when I was a kid (maybe 13 years old) my dad had a collection of those decorative bottles filled bottles filled with Whisky down in the basement.  You know those really ugly things like this one.

I had the brilliant idea of taking a tall glass filling it up mixing the different alcohol's from those bottles and drinking it without stopping.  I think I made it half way through the glass.  All I remember was feeling sick and the room spinning around and I could not throw up.  (Teresa if you are reading this do you remember that stunt?) I was lucky I didn't die of alcohol poisoning.  The only good that came of this experience I did not drink as a teen I couldn't even walk into a liquor store the smell of alcohol made me sick to my stomach.  Even as an adult if I can taste the alcohol I won't drink it or drinks like a Bloody Mary will be a Virgin Bloody Mary.

I do enjoy a glass of wine, margarita, Bailey's in my coffee and other fruity drinks.  I love the beautiful cocktails you see on Pinterest and with cute names like The Scarlet O'Hara, Blu Bungalows, Shark Attack, Blushing Bride, I pin them and I don't make them.  

This summer I'm going to try making some of those drinks I pinned.  I can adjust the alcohol so I'm not putting as much as the recipe calls for - that's what I did on the Pink Bikini and I love it.

Here are a few that I'm going to try

Any suggestions on cocktails that are a must try?

Until Next Time,

    1. The sangria with watermelon sounds very refreshing
