Sangria

I love fruity drinks. I had some Sangria at Alisa’s birthday party. It’s so addicting and delicious!

Berry Sangria

Booze
4 parts White rum
3 parts White wine
1 part Red wine

Mixer
1 part Cranberry juice

Garnish
Raspberries
Blackberries
Blueberries
Strawberries

Directions
First, soak the strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries in rum for at least 3 hours – although I cover them in a bowl and soak overnight.

Once the fruit is ready, mix the white rum, white wine, red wine and cranberry juice in a pitcher. Play with the proportions to suit your taste. Liberal sampling is recommended. In fact invite a neighbor or two over to sample a glass just to be sure. Then – Add the fruit.

Ladle into large goblets and serve chilled – preferably with an afternoon barbecue.

Variation – I have also tried to mix in a bit of Sprite or 7-up, although it makes it a bit too “fizzy” for my tastes.

Creamy shot

I had this for the first time last year on my birthday. Ooh.. give it a try, it’s a lovely shot!

Buttery Nipple

Booze
2 parts Butterscotch Schnapps
1 part Irish cream

Directions
Using a cocktail shaker filled with Ice, pour in 1 part Butterscotch Schnapps and 1 part Irish cream. Shake it up, and pour it out in an Old-Fashioned style glass to shoot back.

Tastes about the same but is a bit thicker (and therefore I prefer it) than the original.

Chocolate Cake shot

My friend Michelle bought me this shot at the karaoke bar. It was sooo good! It really tastes like a chocolate cake.. you gotta try it out!

Chocolate Cake Shot

Booze
1 part Hazelnut liqueur
1 part Lemon vodka

Garnish
Lemon
Sugar

Directions
Pour one part lemon vodka to one part Frangelico (Hazelnut liqueur) in a shot glass. Prepare a lemon wedge by wiping the peel with lemon juice, and rolling it in sugar.

It’s kind of like a tequila shot: lick the sguar off the lemon first, then take the shot, and finish by biting into the lemon wedge.

As soon as the lemon is bitten, the entire mixture turns into chocolate cake in your mouth!

Fried Ice Cream

I was thinking about fried ice cream when I saw Fried Ice Cream ice cream at the store. It was really good. But, I had to have the real thing. My boyfriend and I went to Chapala’s. It was sooo good! Yum! Here’s a great recipe of this delicious dessert. The original recipe can be found at Allrecipes. Enjoy!

Cheese Dip

Beefy Cheese Dip

Beefy Cheese Dip

I found this great recipe over at Allrecipes. My aunt made this cheese dip that had beef in it. This was a couple years ago. I asked her about it but she couldn’t remember the recipe. I’ve been searching forever for a similiar recipe. It took awhile but I found one. I made this last night. It’s so simple to make. It tastes really good. I used Velvetta cheese for the processed cheese. The recipe says you should shred it but the cheese is so sticky it sticks to the shredder. I just chopped it up into small pieces. It melted just fine. I didn’t add sausage and made it for only 32 servings. We had the great dip with some tortilla chips. It was enough for three people with extra left over for another snack for all of us later. The above picture was taken by me and is being used on Allrecipes. 🙂

Here’s the recipe:

INGREDIENTS:
1 pound ground beef
1 pound sausage
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 (16 ounce) jar salsa
2 pounds processed cheese, shredded

DIRECTIONS:
1. In a large skillet, brown beef and sausage. Drain excess fat.
2. In another large skillet, mix green onions, salsa and process cheese over a low heat. Continue stirring until cheese melts.
3. Add meat to the cheese mixture and simmer uncovered until ready to serve.
