Happy Wedding Wednesday!
Since I had a lot of time off last week I did a lot of wedding related stuff! It was wonderfully amazing and fun and I seriously couldn't have done it without my MOH coming over. I'm really bad at doing things when they need to be done, unless someone gives me a deadline and holds me accountable.
It's the journalist in me.
I decided I wanted to cocktail taste on Black Friday because that is a million times better to do than shop with a million crazy people. So a couple of friends came over and my mom decided we needed to feed them, too. We had a wonderful impromptu get together and I found out my drink of choice!! I am a horrible blogger and have ONE photo of me drinking said drinks, so the rest will be pictures from Pinterest :)
There are a lot of fruit allergies among my family members and myself. It basically came down to only being able to do something fruity if it is: apples, strawberry, raspberry, pear or grapes. I'm okay with that!
Sprinkle-Tini (from Venus Trapped in Mars)
This was delicious but way, way, way too strong for me. I have sensitive taste buds so I have to stay away from stronger drinks or my mouth feels burned :(
Apple Cider Sangria
1 bottle (standard size) of pinot grigio <
2 1/2 cups fresh apple cider
1 cup club soda
1/2 cup ginger brandy
3 honey crisp apples, chopped
3 pears, chopped
|I was sorta buzzed, don't hate.|
I loved this and it was ALMOST my wedding drink of choice, but then I realized that it isn't that strong, and quite a lot of prep compared to the winner...
Red Berry Sangria
This is ADAPTED from this website. (But the photo is from them since I didn't take a picture)
1 bottle of Riesling
1/2 cup of Raspberry Vodka
Let sit in fridge for 4-5 hours, the longer the better!
Iman, of course, has it easy. His favorite drink is Crown Royal and Coke.
I still need to ask our vendor if they can make the sangria, or if I can make it. If not - and I would be so, so sad - then my drink of choice will be Malibu. Easy, peasy but not quite as fun!!
I also have a wonderful, wonderful giveaway for you!!
