I Miss Booze - Thursty Thursday Link Up

Thursday, January 15, 2015

I really do. I am 14 days into my Whole 30 and not a drop of alcohol has crossed these lips since Jan. 2. I miss my glasses of wine during the week and a fun cocktail or craft beer on the weekends. But I do not miss the headaches, dehydration, hangovers on rare occasion, sweater mouth or greasy food cravings. So since I can't drink and I'm certainly not going out  I thought I would share a couple of my favorite shots that will straight up warm you from the inside out during these cold winter months. And also get you a nice little buzz too but really they taste so freaking good. Linking up with Kristin & Laura for a little Thursty Thursday fun. Memories....

I love all things cinnamon and y'all know Fireball and me is like peas n' carrots so this first one is pretty much a no brainer. 

Cinnamon Toast Crunch

1 part Fireball + 1 part Rumchata + Cinnamon Sugar for the rim

It seriously tastes  like an alcohol laden version of the milk leftover from you cinnamon toast Crunch cereal. 


Some folks don't seem too familiar with Rumchata and to you I  say "get on my level". It's a delicious blend of rum, cream, cinnamon, vanilla nd other secret spices. Try it, you will love it!

And because I love coffee, coffee drinks, flavored coffee, sweet coffee, beer & babies....

The Baby Guinness

1 part Patron Cafe (or coffee liqueur of your choice) with a floater of Bailey's Irish cream on top. It looks like a little tiny pint of Guinness and tastes like coffee on crack. St. Patty's Day is right around the corner so keep this one in mind.


I look forward to seeing these old friends again some day but for now I say cheers to all of you!

Hopelessly Ever After

Have a great Thursday everyone!

  5. Preach about the Rumchata! So good! And I have mixed it with fireball and I'm a fan. And the little baby Guinness is cute . . . although I think I'd rather have a straight up pint of the Guinness! Baller I am! Ha!
