Classic Margaritas are a reward for making it through a long week….

Posted on

A fresh margarita is a great cure for a long week. It’s also the perfect beverage to make for a crowd. Picture yourself on the patio, under those little glass lights, sipping one of the above drinks. Lovely scene isn’t it? Now add some friends and have a party.

The fabulous Martie Duncan’s blog/website  can help even the most entertaining-challenged soul into a full fledged host who’s events will be the talk of the town.

Use this recipe and you will never go back to the bottled mix. A very simple ingredient list and easy mixing produce a delightful sweet-sour combo. Proceed with caution and sip these slowly.


Bourbon Slush – the best heat wave relief

Posted on

Happy July 4th eve!

Most of the world is experiencing heat that would make Beezlebub sweat. So, here’s my favorite Summer drink. The bourbon compliments the sweet juices perfectly. You can thank me later.

Bourbon Slush


  • 1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 (46 ounce) can pineapple juice
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups strong brewed black tea
  • 2 cups bourbon (such as Jim Beam)
  • 1 (2 liter) bottle of 7up or Sprite (regular or diet, your choice)
  1. In a large bowl , mix everything. Transfer to zip top bags, and freeze 8 hours.
  2. Remove the frozen mixture from the freezer and let stand for about 10 minutes. Break up with wooded spoon to make a slushy. At this point you can pour it into a pretty pitcher. Spoon slush into glasses, and top off with the soda.

This would be a great drink to take to the pot-luck, or serve at your next soiree, or better next, keep in the freezer just for you….
