Like Hungry Girl says "2008 was the year of the 100 calorie everything. So why not a cocktail?" I for one, like many, made the resolution to lose weight this year! Maybe this will be the year! Note: If you want to try this with flavors other than fruit you may want to skip the lime juice. I tried this with Hazelnut syrup and no lime juice and it was very nice. My favorite though is Cherry syrup with the lime juice! Enjoy!
Great holiday treat! I reduced the amount of Southern Comfort by half from the amount originally posted to make it smoother and less strong. If you want it stronger, please measure 3 to 1 eggnog to Southern Comfort. Happy Holidays!
This treatment is easy and said to reduce facial wrinkles! When I read about this I threw my book across the room and RAN to my medicine cabinet! Hey, you are NEVER too young to start looking younger! lol PLEASE share with me your results when you try this!
Cuba meets NYC in this take on the classic Manhattan. A wonderful gold rum from Nicaragua, Flor de Caña, is used here rather than bourbon but I am sure any good gold rum could be used. This is wonderful for people who prefer a drier cocktail. I prefer this on the rocks but you can definitely serve it neat. Adjust the vermouth to your taste. Some prefer more while some prefer it as Winston Churchill did, across the room to be glanced at briefly. lol
Just like the name says- this is my home remedy for the "Mama, I don't feel so good" blues. Try it for yourself. What have you got to lose? oh ya... you can lose the stuffy nose, scratchy throat, coughing your head off crud! Feel better soon!
Recently I found a bunch of "recipes" for using up those lemons that always seem to live in my veggie drawer until they are wrinkled and brown! Now lemons here are usually about $0.33 each or you can buy a 5 lb bag for about $2. Since I hate spending that much on one little lemon I usually buy the bag. I always ask myself tho what kind of savings it is when I do not use them? So I wanted to save this money saving info here where I would be sure to use it! Hope it works well for you too!
On a recent liquor store shopping trip I came across another new product. Green Moon Absinthe Superior Anise Flavored Vodka came in a very cool metal tin that held the glass bottle. I am a sucker for cool packaging! It also came with some recipes that I just had to try. This is the one I really liked and wanted to share it with all of my friends. Enjoy!
