Wednesday Drinks : Carnival Cruise’s The Scarlett Letter

You might wonder why this week’s drink is sitting on a towel. Well instead of getting my mixologist self on this week, I decided to feature one of the amazing Carnival Cruise cocktails we were able to taste at Blissdom. They lured us in with our choice of cocktails and then wowed us with pictures of the ship. It was hard to go to sessions when we were all dreaming of lounging in the sun.

Here’s my favorite of the bunch: The Scarlett Letter.

Which is featured in the ship’s Library Bar of course. Please excuse me while I drink the one I just mixed up and dream of reading while looking out at the sea (the terror twins safely ensconced in the included supervised kids club. Sigh.)

Wednesday Drinks : The GoGo-Rita

Blissdom was a lot of fun and I was happy to connect with a few brands that I hadn’t before. One is a favorite of my kids, GoGoSqueez! Their suite was amazing (more on that in a few days) but what I really loved was their fun attitude. Which totally showed with their custom cocktail: The GoGo-Rita. Why should our kids keep the deliciousness all to themselves.

Wednesday Drinks : Smores Martini

Smores, oh how I love them.
In fact I am still mourning the loss of Suddenly Smores.
Of course, I can make trays of them but it’s hard to stop with just one.

Luckily, lifestyle and entertaining expert Mindy Kobrin was nice enough to come up with a Smore drink recipe for me. This tasty treat satisfies my taste buds and doesn’t involve turning on the oven.

Delicious looking eh?

Wednesday Drinks : Spiked Salted Caramel Cocoa

I’m not a red cup girl. But I do have a thing for their salted caramel hot chocolate. Unfortunately my wallet does not agree with my tastebuds. And there was one thing missing from their recipe. Alcohol.

So while detangling the lights Saturday afternoon, I was determined to come up with my own version to keep up toasty (and a bit toasted.) I am always a bit biased but I think it’s pretty darn delicious. Take a look below and see if you agree.


Want to make one? It’s simple. Promise!

Wednesday Drinks : Smores in a Cup

 

 

This weekend we are taking the girls camping for the first time. In honor of that trip, I decided to create a Smores theme cocktail. It’s based on the Frangelico® Sweet Fantasy recipe. Enjoy!

S'Mores Cocktail

Smores in a Cup

  • 1 cup of your favorite hot chocolate, chilled
  • 1 part Frangelico®, chilled
  • 1 part Smirnoff® Marshmallow Flavored Vodka, chilled
  • Marshmallow Fluff

Stir Frangelio and Smirnoff into your favorite hot chocolate. Garnish with marshmallow fluff. Or float a couple of gourmet marshmallows on there.
