Potential Kitchen Disaster of the Day


Wait…there’s a disclaimer on the top of this post. That can mean only one thing. Cocktail recipes! Woohoo!

I’m inspired to write this boozy post because I’m going somewhere awesome tomorrow. Where? Oh, just a book launch party! I know, fancy, right? I’ve never been to an anything launch party, and it’s for an amazing friend’s book, so I’m crazy excited about it. Plus, I get to get my drink on with friends both old and new. YAY!

Anyway, I’m just going to give you sexy mofos a few recipes you can work with this weekend. Go forth and get shit-faced. Just make sure your friends aren’t dicks and you look out for this guy.

Lemon Drop:

4 ounces fresh lemon juice
2 ounces vodka
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 lemon, sliced
4 sprigs fresh mint

In a shaker, mix together lemon juice, vodka, sugar. Mix until sugar is dissolved. Pour into glass with ice and garnish with lemon and mint.


In a shaker filled with ice, mix together lemon juice, vodka, sugar. Shake the hell out of it. Strain into a martini glass rimmed with sugar. Or as individual shots. It’s always good when the rim is lined with sugar, though. YUM! Also, try it with different flavors of vodka for an interesting twist.

Singapore Sling:

1 ounce gin
¼ ounce triple sec
orange juice
club soda
sour mix

Fill a collins glass with ice. Add gin, then triple sec. Add equal parts OJ and soda. Putin a splash of sour mix. Drizzle some grenadine on top. Serve unmixed. Every time I have this drink I think of “The Shining” (line 24). Creeps me out and keeps me from having too many.

Malibu Bay Breeze:

1 ounce Malibu(or any coconut flavored rum)
pineapple juice
cranberry juice

Fill a glass with ice. Pour in rum. Fill with mostly pineapple juice. Add a heavy splash of cranberry juice. Stir and serve. I used to love this drink. But rum isn’t a very good friend of mine anymore 😦

White Chocolate Martini:

2 ounces Godiva(or any other) white chocolate liqueur
1 – 2 ounces Van Gogh Dutch chocolate flavored vodka
1 ounce grated chocolate for garnish

In a shaker filled with ice, pour in chocolate liqueur and vodka. Shake vigorously. Strain into chilled martini glass and sprinkle with grated chocolate. You could just as easily do a regular chocolate martini. But some people like the creaminess of this one(that’s what she said).

How To Chill a Glass Quickly:

If you don’t have glasses chilling in the freezer at all times(I know you do, you lush!) here’s what you do. Take the glass and fill it with ice. Then fill it with water. Let it sit while you mix the drink. Pour out the ice water and voilà, a chilled glass.

There you have it, my lovely lushes. A few recipes to serve to friends, or enjoy yourself. Be careful, though. You don’t want to end up like this alkie.

Enjoy biznotchezzz!
