Today, I have the pleasure of sharing with you a fun guest post from Kim Haasarud! Kim is a James Beard-honored mixologist, and author of the new book 101 Mojitos and Other Muddled Drinks (101 Cocktails).
I love making themed cocktails for the holidays. It's a fun way to kick off a party and makes the simplest of gatherings even more festive.
Let’s be real. For many, St. Patrick’s Day is an excuse to get together with friends and have a few drinks.
Every good holiday party must have a signature drink. So, move over champagne and vodka sodas -- here comes this delightfully tasty Key Lime Pie Martini! Your guests will be raving about it.
What You'll Need:
* 2 oz vanilla vodka
* 1/2 oz triple sec
* 2 1/2 oz pineapple juice
* 1/2 oz key lime liqueur
* 1 lime
* crushed graham crackers for rimming
What To Do:
"All milk is strictly tested for antibiotics on the farm and processing plant. Any milk that tests positive is disposed of immediately and does not get into the food supply. It is illegal for any milk that has antibiotic to be sold. If you choose to buy milk that claims to be antibiotic-free on the label that is your choice to spend more money." This is the message I share with consumers when they visit our farm or I am given the opportunity to speak about dairy.
When shopping for fruit juice, you may encounter a wide variety of options. Should you pick up juice that is "not from concentrate," a frozen container of concentrate that you mix up yourself, or a carton of juice made from concentrate? There are a few differences among the three options. Your final decision depends on you and your preferences.
Fruit juice concentrate is convenient. You can leave it in your freezer until you are ready to use it. You simply mix it with water, using the can as a measuring cup. Interestingly, the process to make fruit juice concentrate is almost identical to the process for making not-from-concentrate juice.
A koozie keeps your canned drink cold. You've probably seen or have received a foam koozie emblazoned with a company logo, given away as a free gift. While those koozies are practical, they are not stylish. Keep your drink cool in style by making your own boutique, customized koozie. Use insulated quilt batting to keep the drink cool and fabric in your choice of pattern to spice things up. If you can embroider, you can go one step further and produce a koozie that is truly special.
