Babe’s Friday Cocktail | Vacation In A Glass

Any time you can make it feel like vacation…do it!  Mojitos are one of those amazing cocktails that instantly brings you vacation vibes. It’s one of my favorite cocktails and super refreshing!  Cheers, babes!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 ounce lime juice / about 3 limes — Fresh is the best
  • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
  • 3 or more Mint leaves
  • 2 ounces rum — white rum — I prefer Bacardi. (Check the link for a whole array of cocktails with Bacardi.)
  • club soda

Directions

  •  In a smallish  glass, muddle lime juice with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon superfine sugar.
  • Add the few mint leaves, mushing them against the side of the glass.
  • Fill glass 2/3 with  ice and pour in the rum.
  •  Pitch in the squeezed-out lime shell and top off with club soda and stir!

This is a drink you can play around with, add more mint, add another fruit such as Strawberries. The point is make yourself a total babe cocktail that is perfect for you!

Friday’s Cocktail! | Sangria madness

With  a major heat wave hitting southern California, I am in need of a refreshing cocktail. Sangria is one of my favorites but only if done well.

Recently I had a Sassy Sangria at The Patio in Mission Hills, SD. Essentially a sangria with some tequila… it sure will get you sassy 😉  The Patio is a fabulous restaurant that is all about local ingredients and being sustainable, on top of that it is absolutely stunning with great  ambiance.  It is an open kitchen with a  wall of lush living plants and a mix of rustic wooden and elegant heather blue turfed chairs. Your plates will look like art and your taste buds will be dancing.  It is a must try in San Diego!

My other favorite sangria place an happy hour in general is Costa Brava in Pacific beach, SD. It is a Spanish tapas place with $8 pitcher of delicious fresh fruit sangria… I could have an IV of this stuff!!!  You will need some munchies, so.. try everything on the menu 🙂  really… its soo good!

Start your weekend off right with a fabulous glass of sangria and use this amazing chart from wine enthusiast to try something new. Mix it up and get sassy!

Share your favorite cocktails or go to places in your area!

When the boyfriend goes out of town.

Well I get the boyfriend back today. He has been helping his parents move, up north for the past two weeks.  In the two weeks alone I learned and rediscovered:
1. I  really hate taking out the trash.
2. I leave way to many lights on.
3. We are the most awkward skyping couple ever!
4.  Between my girls and Kellen they always make sure to take care of me.
5.I miss his cooking.
6. I only ate bagel bites and cheese and crackers for the first weekend.
7. I sleep so much better when he is home.
8. I discovered I really do suck at filling the brita back up.
9. Drink so much more wine with my girls.
10. I spend way more money

Living together in a domestic partnership for 3 years, its good to have alone time to really appreciate and notice what each other does. I am a lucky lady.
