Five Favorites Vol. 17

9 times out of ten my drink of choice will be a glass of wine. However, I do love a fun cocktail every now and then. My go-to mixed drink is vanilla vodka with ginger ale. A teammate introduced it to me in college and I’ve never looked back. I guess my other favorite would be a Dirty Shirley. A Shirley Temple with vodka BUT even better is when it’s made with vanilla vodka. Ya I’m a fan. It also has a special place in my heart (is that weird to say about a drink?) because Dirty Shirley’s were the “social lubricant” of choice when I had my first experience with my good friend Kate. Up until that point I didn’t think she liked me and vice versa. That fateful night filled with empty glasses and cherry stems proved otherwise.

Sooooo for my Five Favorites I decided to do holiday cocktails. I haven’t tried them yet but basically they’re on my list. It helps when your husband is a certified bar-tender too.
