Food, Life and Love

5:00 Came Early

There is nothing better than spending time with a good girlfriend. This past weekend I was double lucky and spent time with two dear friends. I have known these fantastic women for nine years and we have shared many moments. We have laughed, cried, fought, grown, and bonded over once in a lifetime experiences. These woman know more about me then sometimes I know about myself. As many moments as we have shared, we have shared even more cocktails. This weekend was no exception. Here are three cocktails that you have to try next time you just need some girl time… 

Garden Greyhound:Take 2 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and add two basil leaves. Muddle the basil with the juice. Strain the leaves out. Add 1/2 oz of agave syrup and 1 oz vodka. Shake with ice. Pour into glass and top with soda water. Garnish with basil and a slice of grapefruit.

Pear With No Name:(Ok so we could not come up with a good name for this one. If you have a suggestions, leave a comment. This drink deserves a great name) Muddle one pear with chopped mint. Add 1 oz vodka (or rum), 1/2 oz agave syrup, 1/2 oz of lemon juice. Shake with ice. Pour in glass. Garnish with mint.

Not Your Pappy’s Moscow Mule:Muddle two strawberries. Add 1 oz of dark bourbon and 2 oz ginger beer. (I also tried this one with raspberries and it made me equally as happy.)
