My Favorite Mocktail!



Tis the season to be merry, it’s true. But sometimes I opt for non-inebriated merry. Now, I know you’re laughing your ass off right now – thinking of me not drinking. But it happens. I mean, sometimes a gal is the designated driver.


When alcohol isn’t on the menu, there’s no need to be parched! Opt for My Favorite Mocktail and enjoy yourself! It’s simple and yummy. Here’s what you’ll need…



Orange Juice, Ginger Ale, Bitters and (not shown) Ice.


Add ice to a glass. Add 2 parts Orange Juice to 1 part Ginger Ale. Add a couple of drops of Bitters. Stir. Imbibe!



Pretty easy, eh? And it really is delicious. I’ve never tried it with other types of juice, but it may work. And if you’re wanting more bubbles, simply increase the Ginger Ale to Juice ratio. You can’t go wrong here. Cheers!

It Makes Me a Jolly Good Fellow…



Not only did Mister and I have Beer Clug last night, but I also heard from my buddy, Baker Jen, who wants to know if I’m available to help her finish off a growler of a local brew. Yes, please!


Beer Clug was awesome, with most of our members in attendance. (A couple missed out, as they’re in Holland. But you know what? They’re probably not hurting for beer, so there!) The first beer I tried was just too danged spicy. As in – yow-za! That beer is burning my mouth! I wanted to love it, as I generally dig on spicy brews. Alas, I wasn’t man enough to take it. Then the bar-keep told me he had some bloody mary mix and could mix the spicy beer with that. The joint where we held our meeting doesn’t serve liquor, so the mixer was a total surprise. And after I said yes, and the keep had made my drink, I couldn’t have been happier. That spicy beer was perfect with the bloody mary mix. From there I moved on to a few other heavy beers, and I had a mighty nice time.



Here’s the thing, y’all – I am usually the designated driver. Therefore, I don’t get my drank on very often. But Mister was feeling generous, and he refrained from getting his drank on so that I could have my turn. I’m not a gal who turns down her turn, yo.


So by the end of the meeting, I was pretty smiley and pretty happy. I’d say that’s what Beer Clug is all about.
