Dark Moon Cocktail

12 Days of Cookies and CocktailsĀ  Sometimes I forget my age. Coffee is still a very adult drink. One served to the grown ups at the end of a meal or before work. And now that I when I need to prove just how grown up I am to myself, I occasionally order a coffee. (Which no lie, has turned into a rapid love affair with caffeine). I found, that like most things with being an adult, I didn’t like it right away but learned I had to have it just my way to really enjoy it. This… this is […]

Phoenix Cocktail

We all need our moments. Quiet private moments where we can turn inward and give our self a second to breath. This is for that moment. Come home, kick off the work shoes and allow yourself to completely let go of all the stress of the day. Turn on some music, light a candle, and mosey into the kitchen to make one of these phoenix cocktails. Simple, sweet, and just what the doctor ordered. Coffee may get the engine started, but this is the moment you were looking forward too all day. Savor it. PrintPhoenix Cocktail A local restaurant offered […]

Frozen Rum Runner Cocktails

A lot of people get this idea that “food blogging” is so fun (that is, once they google food blogging, because the rest of the world still thinks it’s just a really weird fad, like bronies – which is NWS if you go to google that too, but with instagram). We are all always out at the hottest new restaurant wining and dining our booties off with them there fancy cameras. Reality check. It’s Friday night and I just mixed my own cocktail after working over time this week at my full time salary-based job. I am eating leftover ribs […]

Brandy Alexander

Brandy Alexander Cocktail || PasstheSushi.com

There’s enough mint, Guinness, and corned beef on the web today to fill you Pinterest stream for weeks. Being the rebel that I am, I decided to break away from the Irish themed recipes and run with this classy cocktail all my own. Ever since I was a small child, I have always associated the Brandy Alexander as a classy after dinner grown up drink. My father used to finish his meal with one any time we went out to dinner. In my mind it was an important part of ending the meal. Not cake, not ice cream. No, this […]

The Jack Rose Cocktail

The Jack Rose Cocktail // PasstheSushi.com

How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day? We’re escaping a weekend early to test our luck on the slopes. We have geared up (thanks to some awesome friends) and are headed out for a new sort of adventure. A much much needed short escape from reality. I am really hoping for some time with my hands on a strong drink (or hot cocoa… ok, maybe a spiked hot cocoa) and a cozy seat by the fire. If you want random pictures of our adventures (maybe even play along with my Waffle House drinking game) make sure to follow along on instagram. […]

Dulce de Leche Rum Shooters from PasstheSushi.com

Iechyd da! (Fun fact, Captain Morgan is named after a Welsh privateer. Learn something new everyday.) Today is the last of my submissions to #CaptainsTable. If you haven’t caught any of these posts yet, please do check them out. It has been awesome to participate in such a fun event with many other bloggers from around the net and for a good cause. I hope this worked out well for the Captain too and received the kind of feed back he was looking for. Every time #CaptainsTable was retweeted Captain Morgan donated a dollar to help end hunger! Very simple […]
