Summertime Frozen Cocktail Recipe

You guys know by now how much I love making cocktails, right? Although I waited tables for nearly 10 years --dang-- I never bartended but always wanted to. You might also remember that I want to open my own bar someday. I've learned over the last couple of years that I love entertaining, and I love handing someone the perfect cocktail that you'd normally only order in a craft cocktail bar.  

If you come over to our house for a party, there will be no shortage of booze available. Whiskey, vodka, gin, tequila.... you name it, we'll have it for you. I pride myself in my bar cart, and love to make something delicious that will get you feeling loose! I guess I just adore playing the role of barkeep

CB and I will be going to VA Beach to see my mom for the July 4th week. Now, her street on the beach does a ton of block parties which is pretty cool, but the July 4th block party takes the cake. One of the activities for the evening is a blender party.

By blender party I mean BLENDER CONTEST.

Everyone votes on their favorite blender concoction. 


I understand that July 4th is over a month away, but NO REST FOR THE WICKED. I've gotta find my winning blender recipe.

  3. A Martha Stewart cocktail? Um yes please. (Still kind of confused as to what a salty dog is but who cares it's a drink)

  4. If you are looking for a winner for you blender games look up a BBC, banana Baileys Colada. It is the best tropical drink for a little umbrella and I have them on every cruise or tropical island I have ever been on. So freakin good!!

  5. We've been OBSESSED with bourbon mules lately, and I can't believe we never thought to add peach. Genius!!
