Boozy Grapes

Boozy Grapes 1

It’s Friday! For a lot of you that have already started back to school I’m sure you are so excited for Friday-no yelling at kids to do homework or get up! And for those of us that haven’t started back to school it just means another night at yelling at kids to be home by curfew, lol!

So, either way you might as well celebrate that we made it to the weekend by making these EASY Boozy Grapes.  They are so refreshing and fun to munch on during happy hour and make any cheese plate look fancy!  I remember asking my wedding cake baker to drape sugared grapes on the grooms cake thinking they were so complicated to make, but they are SO easy.  I should get a refund for that mark-up!

There are only a few ingredients required to make these delicious little balls of happiness. Green Grapes, Prosecco and sugar. Thats it! Send me your pictures or thoughts on this recipe.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

The people are so friendly and the food is to die for!!  We met up with our niece, Bettina, who is from there and we were lucky enough to have her show us around and take us to some amazing spots. One of the spots was the       It was just gorgeous!!  And the one thing that my niece insisted on me ordering was the Hugo Cocktail.  I was very skeptical because it looks so “cocktaily”, but it was DELICIOUS!!!  I ordered it about 5 more times on our trip.  It is SO refreshing and gorgeous! It is the PERFECT drink for summer. My husband even loved it and he does not like cocktails other than a dry martini or a Meyers and Tonic so for him to order it,  it must be good:)

One of the staple ingredients in the cocktail is […]

Winter Champagne Cocktail

What cocktail to serve New Year’s Eve?? Champagne is the traditional drink to serve and it just happens to be my favorite drink! I could drink champagne every day of the year and most days I do:)  This past summer we went on a trip to St. Barths with some very dear friends and luckily my friend Amanda loves champagne as much as I  do!  And with St. Barths being French they had every imaginable champagne everywhere (grocery stores, gas stations, airport…) and we drank enough champagne to sink a boat-it was SO fun!
I digress, back to New Year’s Eve and trying to find a drink that everyone will like or at least most will like. This cocktail is so light an refreshing and not sweet.  I see all the time these signature drinks served at parties and the men walk right past them and head to the bar to get the typical Jack and Coke, whiskey on the rocks, vodka tonic or beer. Men don’t like sweet drinks, at least that is my experience down here in Texas. But…, […]
