Are you a whiskey drinker?  I am guessing the answer is yes if you decided to read this post.  But if you aren’t a big fan, don’t worry – you still need to try this punch.  I am new to the world of bourbons and whiskey.  It is not something I will be drinking straight anytime soon, but if you mix it with something and sweetened it up a little, then I enjoy it.  I made Peach Bourbon Limeade and Bourbon Apple Cider over the last year, so I am slowly getting accustomed to it.  I hope you will give it a try too, because this whiskey sour punch is just so good!

Let’s keep this short and sweet today.  I have a fun cocktail for you.  It is perfect for your holiday get together, New Years Eve, or just because you have some cranberries lying around.  Vodka and Cranberry is a very classic drink, I just added some fizz.  I have a thing about fizz.  For some reason, I think that cocktails need to have fizz in them!  Call me crazy, or call me genius – just make this drink.

Oh, and I have an awesome giveaway for you today too!

I can not believe that we are less than a week away from Christmas.  I have no idea where the time has gone!!  My son has his last day of school today.  Which means I should have presents bought and wrapped, work done, cookies baked, and everything else ready for Christmas.  Like maybe know what is on our Christmas dinner menu, and have it purchased.  But I am not sure that any of that stuff is done yet.  We might be close to done shopping, but not all of the stuff has arrived yet, and I have yet to wrap a single present.  Each year I start December off really well, and tell myself I will keep up and not get buried at the end.  I think I always just think I can do more than is possible.

The weekend is here!  Do you have any parties to go to?  Early Christmas’s to celebrate?  Thankfully we actually don’t have much going on this weekend.  Life has been so crazy lately, I am hoping that we can finally get some stuff done around the house.  Like maybe laundry.  For some reason it just keeps piling up!  Maybe I will actually try to tackle some of my Christmas shopping as well.  I can’t believe we are less than 3 weeks away!

Bourbon Apple Cider - turn fresh apple cider into the perfect fall cocktail

Thank goodness the weekend is here!  It is suppose to be a gorgeous weekend here in Colorado.  Hopefully we will make it up into the mountains tomorrow to see the Aspens.   They turn a gorgeous bight yellow in the fall, and the mountains are just covered in them.  We have plans with friends on Saturday night too, so it should be a fun weekend!  Especially if this Bourbon Apple Cider happens again.

Hot Caramel Apple Cider #IDelight

Hot Caramel Apple Cider - perfect for a cool fall day

Fall is definitely in the air. The weather here has been up and down like crazy, but it seems like it is finally cooling off just a little bit. I love the fall season. All of the colors, the foods, and the cooler temps (hello jeans and comfy sweaters)! I am all about pumpkin, but let’s just give it a little more time before we break that out. Apples deserve their day too :)  After a day outside in the cooler weather, I love coming in to warm up with a hot drink.  And hot apple cider is one of my favorites!

I can not believe that it is August already.  My 9 year old and I are visiting family in Wisconsin this week.  We spent the weekend with my extended family in Minnesota.  It was a great time catching up with everyone, and we had great weather.  On Saturday night all of the adults went on a dinner boat cruise.  So nice to enjoy the sunset, the company, the good food, and all kid free :)  Yesterday we came to Wisconsin, and I got to hang out with Erin (Law Student’s Wife).  Dinner and drinks on the patio in downtown Madison, were the perfect way to end the weekend!

Mixed Berry & Mint Slushies


Mixed Berry & Mint Slushies - fun summer treat

Mixed Berry & Mint Slushies - fun summer treat

We just got back from the best vacation in Costa Rica.  We spent the last 2 weeks there, and it was so incredible.  For the first week, we were in a rented house near Manuel Antonio with family.  This year is my in-laws 45th wedding anniversary, and instead of a big party they wanted to take us, and my SIL’s family on a trip.  We zip-lined, toured rainforests, repelled down waterfalls, went snorkeling, and saw tons of wild life.  The second half of our trip was just the 3 of us in the Southern part of the country, in an area called Corcovado.  That was much more remote and definitely a different experience.  It is so good to be back, but that is a trip we will remember for a life time!  I can not wait to share it all with you in “Thursday Things” over the next month, or as soon as I can get through all our pictures!

Mixed Beery Lemonade - fruity and refreshing for summer!

I wasn’t going to post a recipe today, but I wanted to give you one last fun drink that you can enjoy this weekend!  Do you have any fun plans to enjoy the 4th of July?  I think that we are going to go on a bike ride tomorrow.  Hopefully the trail that we want to ride on isn’t flooded this time.  The rest of the weekend will be spent going to a Colorado Rockies game and probably going up to the mountains to go on a hike.  Personally I am excited for fireworks.  I love getting to see fireworks, there is just something amazing about them!

Cherry Limeade Margaritas

Cherry Limeade Margaritas - mix up some hoemamde limeade for a refreshing summer cocktail (non-alcoholic version as well)

I trust that all the Dad’s out there had a wonderful Father’s Day weekend.  Ours was low key, which is exactly what my husband requested.  We have been so busy lately, he just want to have some time at home.  I had big plans of going away for the weekend, hiking, biking, and seeing friends.  But I was over ruled.  I guess on Father’s Day, the father should get a say, huh?  There were a few treats and a special dinner over the weekend though.  I can’t just let the day completely slide by.
