Hump Day Happy Hour: Champagne & Popsicles

How delish does this look? I found this idea on Pinterest….you know because I have a growing obsession. But anyway, this looks like the perfect summer cocktail. And if you are anywhere near Texas with these 100 degree days we’ve been having then this will be a mixed cocktail in 3.4 seconds flat.

Hump Day Happy Hour: Peach Collins

Every year I look forward to peach season.  Peaches might be my favorite fruit ever.  So when I saw this drink, I knew I needed to try it STAT!  Here’s what you do: muddle peaches* with some sugar, mix with peach vodka, top with club soda. DRINK.

*preferably Texas peaches, you know because they are the best!

Hump Day Happy Hour: Cake Mix Cocktail

When I heard about this drink I HAD to share it! This sounds SUPER yummy!

Fill a glass with ice.  Add 4.5 oz ginger ale and 1.5oz vanilla vodka.  DRINK.

Hump Day Happy Hour: Strawberry Spritzer

With it being a thousand degrees here this sounds very yummy and refreshing! Super simple: Add a splash of strawberry nectar to your glass of champagne.

Hump Day Happy Hour: Slingshot

I ran across this cabernet sauvignon  over the weekend and let me tell you: TRY IT! At $23/bottle it’s not going to be your everyday wine, but it’s definitely worth the $$$ every now and then…

Hump Day Happy Hour: Great Value Rita

I normally buy lemonade drink mix for a drink option in a pinch. So when I saw this lime margarita flavored drink mix, my mind got to wandering. And for $1.78 at Wal-Mart I figured I couldn’t go wrong.  I got it home and threw two packets in the blender with some ice and tequila. These margs are GOOD and the best part is the only calories are what is in the tequila! (I couldn’t find this kind online, but there are many other kinds here.)

Hump Day Happy Hour: Lemon Drop Martini

It has been HOTT up in here lately, and doesn’t this sound so refreshing!?!?!?!

  • 1.5 oz Vodka
  • .5 oz Triple Sec
  • .75 oz Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Super-fine sugar
  • 4-5 ice cubes

Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, pour, and serve!

Hump Day Happy Hour: Messina Hof Find

Remember this?  Well, if I had not had gone and almost killed myself falling on my ass off a bridge had the time of my life, I would never have found this gem.

Just the right about of raspberry and perfect amount of bubbly tang.  Der loved it as well, we both snagged a bottle.  Would definitely recommend for a crisp change of pace.

Hump Day Happy Hour: La Jota

This wine was purchased by my aunt based off a recommendation from the owner of our local WineStyles, a store/bar for all things wine related. It might be the best red wine I have ever had.  When the bottle was empty I was definitely wishing there was another available, although I may have been a little too tipsy to properly enjoy it 🙂 Its a little pricey for an everyday table wine, but it would be perfect for a special occasion or just a splurge.
