In honor of Bryanna’s turning 21 this year, I figured we would celebrate with a nightly “Drink of the Day,” just like they do on the cruiseships! All of the recipes that I used were of the low-carb variety…if you click on the name of the drink, it will take you to the recipe.
Day One: Pink Flamingo Martinis
(Except to make it low carb, I substituted Stevia for sugar and Black Raspberry ICEE, a sparkling pop, for Grenadine)
Unfortunately, Bryanna was hopped up on pain pills due to her kidney stones not yet passing and missed out on this drink. Mom and I enjoyed them though!
Day Two: Orange Creamsicle
I apparently was a little heavy-handed on the liquor on this one and it about killed us all.
Day Three: Moscow Mules
After our day trip to St. Augustine and a tour of the Distillery, we figured it was appropriate to cool off in the pool with these cocktails in the pretty new mugs given to me by Sue, my mother-in-law. Cool and refreshing!
Day Four: Margaritas
Day Five: Mojitos
This was Sunday afternoon, after church, when it was forecast to rain, which explains why mom and I are not in the pool. We relaxed inside and watched a movie instead that afternoon.
Day Six: Pina Coladas
I like how, without even planning it that way, each drink up to now was in its own special glass. Such a fun little touch.
Day Seven: Spiked Arnie Palmers
No recipe…just half Crystal Lite Lemonade, half Crystal Lite Iced Tea with two shots of vodka
The favorite by all. I know what my drink of the summer will be this year.
Day Eight: Detox! (Ha…just kidding!)
It was a fun little activity to look forward to each day and we all enjoyed trying these different drinks each day. Drink responsibly, Bryanna. Don’t drink and drive!
