It’s D for Drink today and I’d love to know your choice of liquor, spirits, hootch, tipple or booze!
What better day than Friday to think about our favorite drinks?
Are you a wine lover?
I like a glass of red wine at dinner on occasion. Since I don’t have a sophisticated palette, I’m a sucker for a great label.
As for liquor, I’m a tequila drinker when out dining. I do like salt with my classic margarita, but I mix it up now and then. One of my favorite recipes at home is tequila with unsweetened cranberry juice and pineapple juice… and of course the glass makes it that much more appealing. 😉
I’m not one for fruity margaritas, but when we visited the Lochsa Lodge in Idaho on our motorcycle trip this past July, they had a huckleberry margarita to die for!
Of course it helped that we were sweaty from a long ride. And the view from our table was stupendous!
I tried to recreate the margarita when we got back to California but was unsuccessful. I guess we’ll just have to go back to the Lochsa Lodge for that little lovely!
My husband designed a drink in my honor that is quite potent. It’s pretty high in sugar so we only bring it out for special occasions. But the title is worth the sugar shock! 😉
SLOW SCREW IN SUNNY MEXICO
1 ounce Galliano
1 ounce Tequila
1 ounce Tennessee Honey liqueur
7 ounces OJ (or to taste)
Pretty it up with an orange slice, bright red cherry and whatever else tickles your fancy.
Now it’s your turn. What fancy drink have you made up? Or has someone made up for you. And it does NOT need to be alcoholic. Whatever floats your boat is welcome here. And as always, I’d love to hear your comments on this or any other part of my blog.
