Girlie Drink of the Week

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 in BOOZE!!, Social

As y’all know, things are in upheaval at Casa de Aggie right now. Our Eldest is leaving next week for basic, and her mom isn’t adjusting very well. I’m not saying she’s a wreck. I’m just saying Kleenex™ is having a banner quarter, that’s all.

Anyway, I still have some of that beautiful Lillet in the cabinet, so I decided to use it in a recipe that wouldn’t require a lot of thinking on my part.

rose grapefruit cocktail

Rose Grapefruit

  • 2 parts Lillet Blanc (or Rouge)
  • 1 part Ruby red grapefruit juice

Pour Lillet and juice over ice in a tall glass and stir. Or fix a pitcher and chill for a couple of hours, then serve in champagne flutes. I prefer the Lillet Blanc because it is sweeter, but if your grapefruit juice is already sweet, try the Rouge for a deeper color and sharper flavor.

Now please excuse me. I have to go find more tissues and make a pitcher of this stuff to tide me over until tomorrow. :D

Like a Hoss

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 in Awesomeness, Everyday Hero, Government

By now everyone and their dust bunnies is aware of the indictment against Texas Governor Rick Perry. On Tuesday, Gov. Perry turned himself in to be booked, proving to the world that he cannot be intimidated, and that nothing will ever make him look bad. Not even a mug shot.

Within minutes the photo went viral, and inspired several memes around the interwebtubenets. The hair, the tie, the suit, the smirk….. all combine to make the most drool-worthy mugshot of all time. Bar none.

Can one get enough of bourbon?

I THINK NOT!!

Bourbon is such a great libation. You can use it for first aid, for desserts, in coffee or tea, even for canning fruit. Oh, and don’t get me started on using it for making vanilla extract. Simply heaven, and better than store-bought. Oh sure, you can use vodka to make the extract, but bourbon has a richness that lends itself to food better than vodka. But enough about that.

frisky whiskey cocktail

Frisky Whiskey

  • 1 oz. Maker’s Mark
  • 1 oz. Honey liqueur
  • 1 oz. Orange juice
  • ¼ oz. Simple syrup
  • Couple of dashes of bitters
  • Lemon wedge for garnish

Pour all ingredients except the lemon wedge into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well, and pour over ice into an old-fashioned glass. Garnish with the lemon wedge. You can also increase the bourbon and skip the simple syrup if you like your drink with more of an edge. I prefer my drinks sweet, just like me :D

Girlie Drink of the Week

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 in BOOZE!!, Social

Dear Lord, I pray that you let this week go by fast and without incident, because I am thisclose to taking a machete to something. In Your name I pray, Amen.

So, now that I am calm enough, I can share with you this week’s girlie drink offering. It requires tequila.

It also requires some peace and quiet, which is not always guaranteed by BARKING DOGS AND DEMANDING KIDS.

Okie dokie, I’m done.

raspy lemonade

Raspy Lemonade

  • 3 Tbsp. Lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
  • 1 Tbsp. Sugar
  • Large handful of raspberries
  • Mint leaves
  • ¼ C. Water
  • 2 oz. Silver tequila

Dissolve the sugar in the lemonade, then add the raspberries and the mint leaves and muddle to release their flavor. Add some crushed ice, the water and the tequila and stir. Then drink quickly before anyone else demands that you drive them to band camp take them to driver’s ed pick up their glasses fix their shoe get more school supplies run an errand. Again. :D
