This milkshake cocktail is a…

Orange and Coffee Moscow Mule

For those of you who are fans of the classic Moscow Mule, you are in for a real treat today! And those of you who are not yet Mule fans, I’m hoping to convert you. 🙂 Often when a classic cocktail is updated, it’s called "improved". Since Moscow Mules are one of my all time favorite cocktails, I don’t necessarily think it needs "improving", but I do love swapping out…

Spiced Vanilla Bean Bushwacker

If you’ve never had or at least heard of a bushwacker before, then you probably read the title of this post and thought, "What the wa???" while raising your eyebrows as high as they will go. I know. It’s a weird name. The first time I ever had one was in Nashville with my then boyfriend, now husband, Trey. He had lived in Nashville and told me that bushwackers were…

Pink Lemonade Jello Shots

Summer is all about party foods, am I right? What excites me the most about going to a picnic or pool party is really what’s being served at the snack table more than anything else. We’ve done our fair share of jello shots here at the blog, and I always have some extra love for the ones that are really cute as well as really tasty, so I thought a…

Elsie’s Favorite Bloody Mary Recipes

It’s no secret that I love a good Bloody Mary, but since my husband and I rarely drink in the mornings, I don’t have them very often. And I think the rarity of it makes them feel like an EXTRA special vacation drink, which makes me love them even more! A couple years ago, I did a big series of Bloody Mary recipes here, and since we have a ton…

Peeps Jello Shots!

OK, this is obviously not something for the kiddie Easter basket, but what adult doesn’t have fond memories of eating Peeps marshmallow bunnies (or chicks)? And don’t forget that we all knew that weird person that would save them until they got stale because they are supposedly "better that way". It’s certainly not unusual for my brain to want to turn everything into a jello shot (see our jello archives…

Egg Nog Martini

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is the seasonality of the treats and delights. I mean, would things like peppermint hot chocolate and egg nog be as special if you had them every day of the year? While I have had some amazing homemade egg nog in my time, I have to admit that I’m not much of a whiskey/brandy fan, so while I can still enjoy…

Moscow Mule Jello Shots

I can vividly remember being out for drinks with Elsie and Emma about a year ago and hearing them order a drink that was unfamiliar to me—a Moscow Mule. I had no idea what the drink actually was, but the name intrigued me, and once I saw it brought to them in the shiny copper cups, I really had to know what this drink was. Thankfully, they are totally the…

Watermelon Slice Jello Shots

What could say summer more than a nice big slice of watermelon? Well, what if that watermelon slice was actually a giant jello shot?? I know, I know, total dream come true. We’ve filled a lot of fruit with jello and alcohol before (check out our orange creamsicle, lemon drop and mojito lime jello shots), but when I saw you could fill a watermelon and slice it up into slices,…
