Friday Favorites {cocktail edition}

The day has finally arrived!!!  My sister is coming to visit and we’re having ourselves a sister weekend.  We’re going to drink wine on Friday night at a wine dinner and then all she wants to do is sleep in and go to the pool (and not have to watch kids!) on Saturday.  I can totally make that happen.  But Saturday night is kind of up in the air.  I mean, I know we’re going to eat something delicious (duh!) but I’m going to wait and see what we eat Friday night before making any decisions.  (I take food very seriously.)  And there’s one more decision to be made:  what will our cocktail be on Saturday?

So I’m going to try and make the decision easier for Maggie.  Instead of doing a round-up of everything and anything, today’s Friday Favorites is all about cocktails.

**And if cocktails aren’t your thing – which is totally cool and respected – some of these would make amazing MOCK-tails**

Favorite Herb-Infused:  Strawberry Basil Ginger Cocktail.  So refreshing.  And we have lots of basil in the garden.

 

Favorite Toast:  French 75 Punch.  This would be the perfect way to introduce Maggie to my favorite champagne cocktail.

 

Favorite Pitted:  Roasted Cherry Sangria.  Maggie loved Dr. Pepper growing up so I have a feeling she’d love this cherry-filled drink.

 

Favorite In-Season:  Peach Moscow Mule.  I know Maggie isn’t a fan of rum so this vodka-based cocktail might be a winner.

 

Favorite Bubbles:  Prosecco.  Champagne.  Cava.    You can’t go wrong with sparkling wine.  But I love seeing the side-by-side comparison.

 

Favorite Pretty:  Strawberry Clover Club.  Almost too pretty to drink.

 

Favorite Escape:  French Tropics Summer Punch.  One day, Maggie and I are going to turn a sister weekend into a sister “getaway.”  But until then…

 

Favorite Bright:  Pineapple, Mint, Ginger and Lime Crush.  Sounds so refreshing.

 

Favorite Tequila:  Fizzy Peach Jalapeno Margaritas.  Because no cocktail round-up is complete without tequila.

 

Cheers!

(I promise to report back on the final decision.)
