Well, let’s hope I can get my act together more often than that. Rocketboy has been safely delivered back to college for his sophomore year, and no one here is demanding my attention at the moment. Let’s see what’s in the funneh folder for today.

Girlie Drink of the Week

28 Apr

I know it doesn’t feel like it in parts of our country, but we are well into Spring and some of us are enjoying temperatures to match. Today’s offering is a simple twist on a classic.

greyhound cocktail

The Greyhound

  • 2 oz. Vodka
  • 5 oz. Grapefruit juice
  • Grapefruit slices for garnish (optional)

Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice and shake gently. Strain into a highball glass over ice, and garnish with a grapefruit slice. I prefer Ruby Red grapefruit juice since it is sweeter. If using herbs to garnish like rosemary or basil (don’t knock it), use regular grapefruit juice. Either way, this will keep you cool when the weather finally decides to cooperate πŸ™‚

Girlie Drink of the Week

9 Mar

Considering the viewership here, I am seriously thinking of changing the title to “Cocktail of the Week”. Maybe then the gents would be more apt to try it. But for now, it’s still a girlie drink, even though it features bourbon. Or maybe because of it.

tea breeze cocktail

Tea Breeze

  • 6 oz. chilled sweet tea (sweet to your taste)
  • 8 mint leaves, plus one sprig for garnish
  • ΒΌ oz. fresh lemon juice (Meyer, if you can get it)
  • 1 Β½ oz. peach schnapps
  • 1 oz. Maker’s Mark (or bourbon of choice)

Pour and place all ingredients in an ice-filled shaker. Shake well, and pour into a tall glass over ice. Garnish with the mint sprig.

Usually, I tell y’all that garnish is very optional. But not so with mint. Mint is awesome, and the mo, the bettah. So sprig away your doctored tea, and hopefully that will ease your transition into Daylight Savings πŸ˜‰

Three Posts for the Price of One

26 Feb

Sorry I have been remiss in posting the usual eye candy and funneh and vitriolic politic. The past two weeks have been hectic, but I am happy to announce all of my drama has been resolved. At least until March 7th. Then the cycle of drama is sure to begin again, Finnegan. So here are three posts to catch up on this blarg.

Bimbos Be Bitching

Last Sunday the Oscars were presented. I don’t watch it anymore, simply because it’s a preening contest involving people who are paid to project fantasy, voted on by the same, and applauded by themselves. Patricia Arquette (full disclosure: I have seen only one of her movies, “Stigmata”) won for something, don’t know what nor do I care, and then proceeded to bitch about pay equality and women’s rights. This from a multimillionaire. Meryl Streep and J Lo were cheering her on. That from multimillionaires.

patricia arquette lol

You want to impress me? Then get paid scale and stop wearing designer shit that the women you seek to empower can’t afford. Oh, and while you’re at it, do away with ALL the perks that women in the work force enjoy, like maternity leave. Make them equal, and let’s see how much they love you.

Girlie Drink of the Week, Men’s Edition

3 Feb

I’m not sure if an apostrophe is needed in the title. I shall rely on my usual defense and say, English is my second language. Anyway, today’s offering is a manly drink that gals can also enjoy. Not too foofie, and not to “oh em gee my throat is on fire”.

bourbon smash

Bourbon Smash

  • ΒΎ oz. simple syrup
  • mint sprigs
  • lemon wedges
  • 2 oz. bourbon

Take about eight mint leaves, three lemon wedges and the simple syrup, and muddle them with a spoon in a cocktail shaker until the lemons are pretty smooshed. Add the bourbon and ice, and stir until cold (don’t shake, since it would really break down the mint too much). Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. For garnish, take a mint leaf and rub between fingers gently to release the oils, and add to the drink.

This is a great alternative to wine. Don’t judge me πŸ˜€
