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,
