It's Like Sex and the City

This post is at least. Only without the sex and it's all about the cocktails/mixed drinks.

What are your faves? Least favorites? Any drinks you've made up that you'd like to share?

My faves?

Spicy Bloody Marys and Mojitos.



No place makes Bloody Marys like Louisana and even then you have to be careful when you order them. Not all Bloody Marys are created equal. Trust me.

Blueberry Cape Cod. Blueberry vodka and cranberry juice. It's not too sweet and not too tart. So delicious!

LOVE mojitos! Can't wait until I can drink one again.
And gin and tonics, perfect summer drink.

I'm all about tinis. My fav used to be a cosmo, but then I discovered the Lemon Drop. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Also, there is a posh little restaurant here that serves fancy froofy food that's a bit to mature for my tastes, but they have something called a Strawberry Lemonade martini. Yum!

I love Bloody Marys!

My favorite hot mixed drink (for an after dinner drink rahter than coffee) is called a Blueberry Tea. You mix Orange Pekoe tea with a bit of Grand Mariner and Amaretto. It sounds weird, but it tastes like blueberries and it gives you a warm fuzzy feeling inside because it's pretty strong!

There's also the "Strip and Go Naked," which is made with a can of frozen lemonade concentrate. Dump that into a pitcher or bowl, then fill the lemonade can with vodka, then add a can of beer and put it in the freezer until it becomes kind of like a slush. It is AWESOME.

I'm all about Cape Cods. If not that then a good Margarita on the rocks or a Long Island Ice Tea.

Blueberry Cape Cod is my secret addiction...but i will settle for a nice cold glass of blackberry wine.

Geesss. . . I love Bloody Mary's, but only sem to have them when I am back in the States. This week (guilty confession), I've had them for breakfast each day, with a couple of pickled okras for garnish. Um, um, good.

Mmmm I LOVE me some pommegranite martinis. I also love key lime pie martinis. I also like any kind of margarita, straight or frozen. I love all daquiries too. I sound like I need AA.

Apple Margaritas. Applebees used to make an awesome one. It's a typical margarita with a little less margarita mix and sour apple mix added. Then you put cinnamon and sugar around the rim instead of salt. Yummm! It is a sweeter drink but I love them.

Lisa said...

Mmm.. I love mojitos. I like certain kinds of bloody marys, my dad and stepmom make a mean one! Otherwise, I enjoy raspberry lemonade and vodka.

I love a drink called the fruit loop! you use some blue liquor & coconut rum with some creme...tastes JUST LIKE A FRUIT LOOP! HEAVEN!

I went to a restaraunt in Columbus, GA called Hoolihans (not sure if just local or what..) but they had an enormous drink menu, which highly excited me of course. They actually had a sex in the city section.. one drink named after each of the girls. My favorite was The Ex-Boyfriend (the Samantha). I don't remember what was in it so this isn't very helpful but I just thought I'd share. It's was nice and sweet with just the right amount of sour and was hot pink. That's all.

Ohh I am going to have to try some of these...

I drink Malibu pineapple.. super yummy

lala said...

lemon drop :]

or merlot.

both favorites. although i'd say merlot is a little more favorite. but not in the cocktail category, so lemon drop it is.

kd said...

Mmm...cocktails!

I have recently discovered Campari and orange on ice, but my all time favs are the champagne cocktail and a dirty martini. :)

The Wife said...

best mojitos in vicenza are at the caco caffe downtown. OMG I am drooling just thinking about one! if you need directions email me or ask one of the bartenders at the arena, they all love that place too!

Shoshanah said...

Sea Breezes
Bay Breezes
Midori Sours
Amaretto Sours

Jane said...
