Painkiller Cocktail

Painkiller Cocktail from PasstheSushi.com

The other day my boyfriend came back from a quick errand all pleased with himself. I was brushing my teeth and he starts hollering to come out and see what he got me. I rolled my eyes and went about brushing my teeth. We’ve been together while, I know his quick trip to the market and liquor store in no way resulted in a present for me. Yet he continues to call for my attention from the hallway. And you know that exact moment when you start to get excited. Like, maybe Handsome really did find something that was perfect for […]

Raspberry Mojitos

Raspberry Mojitos from PasstheSushi.com

Yesterday we decided to ride a grueling 60 mile road ride in 90 degree heat. That means waking up at early on my only day off, gearing up and going for almost 4 hours of constant pedaling. It was a long flat coastal ride (ignore that power plant in the distance) with great company and new friends. But it was long, and I am still new at this. It was long, and at mile 40 I was feeling it and I knew that last mile included a bridge. A big bridge. A bridge that was bigger on the way back […]

Sipping on… Seagram’s Escapes

Tropical Breeze from PasstheSushi.com

It has been a long hard week. One of those crazy work from early til late, get home and more work is still waiting to be done. Wash, rinse, repeat.   You know those days. And as much as I would love to think that this avid food blogger can whip up a meal and a cocktail every single night–even on those busy ones–it just doesn’t happen. Seagram’s Escapes came to the rescue a few nights this week. With fun refreshing drinks, it was a great option to have in the fridge without having to mix something up myself. I […]

Simple Strawberry Margaritas for One

Strawberry Margaritas for One from PasstheSushi.com

This recipe was made for you and those fancy single serve blenders and those late night too long work days packed with more than enough stress. Or maybe a quick drink to serve with individual flair at a small get together… Or just add more of everything, make it by the pitcher and shove some straws in there. Maybe just one straw. (Can you tell what kind of day I’m having… ignoring that this posts at 8 or so in the morning).  As for those individual blenders  I love mine, and use it for everything. I make myself a spinach smoothie almost every […]

Bahama Mama… I think

Bahama Mama via PasstheSushi.com

When it comes to tossing back drinks, I’m never one to get sloppy drunk (except for that once, but the Storm Troopers made me do it) but sipping an occasional cocktail and letting my hair down. Yeah, I am all about that. Especially if be occasional, we mean on a daily basis and if by hair down we mean giggling like a school girl then yes. Exactly. While hanging out at The Guesthouse at Lost River, I figured I’d try something new. Asking the young bartender what he was good at making, he started whipping up what he called a Bahama Mama. I hate a […]

Spiked Strawberry Lemonade

A random collection of things I am diggin on this week:  3 minute dryness undo avacodo awesomeness Teal nail polish. For someone who never wears nail polish, this stuff is addictive. My new web site design… because change is good. The super early edition of Baked Elements that I can’t wait to review This awesome cookbook from Handsome that I am dying to bust into Strawberry Flavored Rum. and this perfect summertime lip gloss from E.L.F. in Goddess. The perfect shade to kiss summer goodbye.      

Pumpkin Pie Martini

pumpkin_pie_martini_7

Things have been crazy at the homestead with a lack of internet for over 9 days now. I have to come in to work early and leave late to try to keep things up and running here and the guilt of not commenting on other blogs is driving me a little batty. Ok, that one made me sound crazy. However, Handsome and I have been catching up on some reading and some movies and the house is spotless so I guess there’s some good coming of it. I feel trivial complaining about a lack of the internet when there are […]

Blueberry Cheesecake Martini

blueberry_cheesecake_martini_17

Some days, you look up baffled. Everything was going so smoothly. The chores were done, the kitchen cleaned and tidied and all that was left was to make a simple supper for you and your man. A supper you should have been able to make in your sleep with one hand tied behind your back… and somehow, this happens… You’re not sure why, or how it happened. It just did. Some freak accident tornado rolled through your kitchen and dirtied every single pot and pan within arms length – and all the forks to boot – with only one butter knife surviving to […]

Blueberry Milk for your inner kid

blueberry_milk7

Here’s a post to send you right back to your glory days as a small child when nothing was better then the large glass of milk in front of you and the awesome straw you may have been lucky enough to score to sip it all up with. The moment I saw this on Vittles and Bits I got so excited and knew I had to try it. As a kid ( and rather shamelessly still as an adult) nothing is more awesome than an ice cold glass of chocolate milk. Whenever we go out for breakfast, we are always […]

Getting through the holidays, one sip at a time.

martini7

Remember, a great hostess always greats her guests with a great drink at the door, and if your holiday season has been anything like mine this year, you’re going to need a stiff drink to make your way through the next few days. Unless your one of those people that gets violent, a good mixed drink will help you to relax, unwind and not look like you want to kill someone. It will help with conversation and laughter will come with more ease – heck, it may not even be fake at if you help yourself to a few. The […]
