You guys, I am so sleepy today. I must have had too much fun over the last week
Like, forget the CAPS LOCK key, I’m using the NAPS LOCK key. Forget laptops, I’m typing this on my naptop. Forget Google Maps, I need Google Naps.
I could go on, but I’ll spare you. Also, I cant stop yawning as I write this because the above gif is making me yawn. Is it making you yawn? Quick, lets scroll down.)
So, what should we talk about today? Food? It is Foodstuff Friday after all, so food seems like a good choice…
But, nah, I’m more in the mood to talk about cocktails
My cocktails today are going to focus on champagne/prosecco. I just love a little bubbly in my cocktails especially in the summer. It’s very refreshing, don’t you think? And these aren’t just frou-frou oh let me take a little sip with my pinky in the air type of champagne cocktails either- perhaps you prefer gin? or whiskey? I have cocktails for you too, sailor.
First up, the classic with a twist: Pink Grapefruit Mimosa. It’s a delicious change of pace from the usual orange juice. (I actually tried this for the first time at Christine’s house while she was holding a brunch. It’s so yum.)
Next up, perhaps you’re in the mood for something that tastes a little more like a pine tree? Cool, the Southside Royale has you covered…
This one uses GIN:
And next, maybe you consider yourself a liquor connoisseur of sorts and prefer to stick to the darker libations. No problem, the Cork County Bubbles Cocktail can handle that…
This one uses WHISKEY:
And lastly, nothing screams summer to me like a Mojito, so cue the Champagne Mojito…
This one uses RUM:
And if you truly don’t like the bubbles, how about an Old Spanish:
So there you go, a little something for everyone.
What are you doing this weekend?
Are you a cocktail fan, or do you tend to stick to wine/ beer/ non-alcoholic drinks?
Did you know it’s National Donut Day? Whats you favorite kind of donut? (I realize this blog’s values are out of whack when I mention National Donut Day and not National Running Day, which was Wednesday. Oh well.)
