Today is a special day. Why is it so special, you ask? Because I have two fabulous cocktail posts for you today. Exciting, right?
I’ve been a cocktail making and blog posting machine, lately. Both Jen from Juanita’s Cocina and Heidi from Young Grasshopper asked me to guest post while they’re out doing their thang and, of course, I excitedly said yes to them both. I hope your having fun, ladies.
I’m not sure if you’re familiar with Heidi or her site, but she’s amazing. If you need a cocktail recipe, Heidi’s your gal. She’s the cocktail queen. She’s also the brains behind Barfly, a site dedicated solely to alcoholic beverages. Can I get a heck yes? In honor of Heidi and our love for cocktails, I made a grilled peach bourbon old-fashioned. It’s delicious. Strong, but delicious.
This drink isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s a good, strong cocktail made for sippin’.
Want the recipe? Heidi’s featuring this delicious cocktail on her site today, and it just so happens that it’s Thirsty Thursday. Go visit Heidi, get the recipe, and relax the old-fashioned way.
Can you guess what I made for Jen? A cocktail, but not just any cocktail, a lime-in-the-coconut margarita. It’s mind-blowing! It’s a combination of a margarita and pina colada. It’s sweet, tart, and coconuty (yes, I know that’s not a word, but I’m sticking with it).
Did I just hear the word lush? Well, I have to admit, I do enjoy a good cocktail. However, I have a two cocktail limit because, face it, I’m old now and can’t handle hangovers. Did I just hear the word wimp? Man, ya’ll are harsh. Just kidding. I’m a total wimp- no shame here.
I met Jen back in December when I launched my blog. She is absolutely awesome and funny as heck. 1. She lives in Texas, and I happen to love the good ol’ state of Texas. 2. She makes a lot of Mexican cuisine, and I love me some tacos. 3. She squealed when I told her I was making a margarita for her guest post. I truly believe that Jen is my foodie soulmate.
Go on over and visit Jen for the lime-in-the-coconut margarita recipe. I’m sure she’s over there drinking a margarita on the deck singing, “Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up.”
