When it comes to drinking, I don't discriminate against alcohol and enjoy uber girlie drinks as much as any manly concoction. That's why when I saw this recipe, created specifically with the Sex and the City viewer in mind by Skyy vodka, I knew I had to give it a try. It's a sublime combination of vodka and fresh citrus with a little bit of creme de cassis (a black currant flavored liqueur). A sugared rim adds a pop of color and lightly sweetens the drink. It's a fabulous and fun cocktail that's easy to make and perfect for a girl's night in. To serve this to your friends — be sure to use the special Sex and the City bottle of vodka! — get the recipe.
While I love martinis and martini-style cocktails, I'm not always a fan of martini glasses. Especially at a party where there will be a lot of excited and giggly females. They are just too easy to spill! Also, does anyone really own 10 martini glasses?
Thus, for a Sex and the City party, I'm recommending this simple concoction as the signature cocktail. It's an interesting mixture of grape-flavored vodka, 7Up, lemon juice, and red wine.
The recipe can easily be batched, so fill a pitcher with the cocktail and let the girls get their own glasses. Just be sure to tell them the red wine is floated on top. I would also stock up on your favorite bubbles as some people will prefer to celebrate with sparkling wine. To get the drink recipe, read more
Summer is just around the corner and I'm excited for everything the warm weather has to offer. From picnics and barbecues to strawberries and hamburgers, this is my favorite time of year! And with Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, and Memorial Day, there are a lot of parties to look forward to. Wondering what items we're totally obsessing over this month? Here they are, our must haves for May.
Recently Skyy vodka came out with a new addition to its infusion line, the brand's wide collection of flavored vodkas. With flavors like passion fruit and grape, it's no surprise that the latest Skyy infusion is ginger. I'm a huge fan of Canton's ginger liquor so I was excited to get my hands on a bottle of Skyy's variation. It's made with all natural ginger flavors and tastes slightly sweet with a hint of spice on the finish.
I decided to try it in a simple yet refreshing drink created for the vodka company's initiatives to promote Dining Out for Life, a fundraiser created by ActionAIDS. The easy concoction is a combination of vodka, 7UP, and fresh lime juice. 7UP isn't an ingredient I use often in cocktail making, but I was surprised at how well it works with the ginger vodka. It's smooth, easy to drink, and just the sort of thing you want to order when out dancing on a Saturday night. Get the quick recipe and read more.
It's T minus two days until your big Halloween party! Since nobody wants to spend the entire night mixing cocktails, serve a punch. It's quenches the thirst of a crowd and is easy to make. All you have to do is dump the ingredients into a cauldron and stir. This potent concoction is a mixture of passion fruit vodka, cranberry juice, ginger ale, and sparkling apple cider. To achieve a smoldering affect, you'll have to get your hands on dry ice, but if you don't have time to seek it out, the punch is still enjoyable without the smoke. Also, stock up on beer or order a keg. To check out the apple punch recipe, read more
Red wine is a no brainer: it's the color of blood. To tint beer red, I'll use the same technique I employed on St. Patrick Day's only with red food coloring instead of green.
I'll also offer this dessert cocktail. It's a mixture of raspberry vodka, white chocolate liqueur, and half and half. The dripping blood rim is made from strawberry syrup and the ingenious garnish? Plastic fangs! To get the recipe keep reading.
