Girlie Drink of the Week

Running late, because groceries don’t get shopped for themselves. I have no idea what that means, either. However, this weekend is Independence Day, and barring aliens who can’t speak and can be taken down with a laptop showing up and trying to take over our planet, we shall be hosting friends and enjoying the freedoms so many fought and died to protect. There shall be whiskey, and bourbon, and scotch, and also this, because it’s pretty and I like it.

born free cocktail

Born Free

  • 1½ oz vodka
  • 1 oz. watermelon schnapps (yes, it exists)
  • ½ oz. cranberry juice
  • ½ oz. lemon juice
  • ½ oz. blue curaçao
  • ½ oz. simple syrup
  • soda water

In a highball glass filled with ice, pour the watermelon schnapps and cranberry juice. carefully add the lemon juice, the vodka, and the simple syrup to layer the “white”. Then very carefully layer the blue curaçao on top, and finish with a bit of soda. I would mix the ingredients for each color separately and then compose the drink. Of course, you will end up stirring it anyway, so there’s that 😀

Is this smart or evil?


At first look, it makes sense that the only button without a braille label is for the light. But now we’re left thinking about the poor blind guy laying in the hospital bed racking his brain trying to figure out what the unlabeled button is for … since it doesn’t seem to do anything.


Girlie Drink of the Week, Return of H&B Edition

Can you believe this shizznet??? We are BACK, baby!!!!

The Boss finally capitulated and decided it was less of a PITA to reopen for business than to listen to me wail, and whine, and sob, and bitch about it. Unfortunately, the posts at the previous incarnation can’t be imported. That means all the old stuff will be new again.

But not this week’s Girlie Drink. This is the best way I have found to satisfy my sweet tooth. This week anyway.

salted caramel martini

Salted Caramel Martini

  • 2 parts RumChata™
  • 1 part caramel vodka
  • sea salt

Rim a coupe glass with sea salt (or table salt) using water. Pour the RumChata™ and vodka into an ice-filled shaker and shake well. Strain into the coupe, and serve with a drizzle of caramel if you wish. You can garnish with salted caramel cubes instead, which I find to be even better because you can eat them as you drink and saves you the embarrassment of dragging your finger into the glass for the last of the caramel.

So I hear 😉
