Bloody Mary. Mimosa. Bellini. What do all of these things have in common (besides being delicious)? They are perfectly acceptable to drink at breakfast time! And since we are firm believers that a Sunday brunch is not complete without a brunch cocktail, we decided to work up and sweet and savory cocktail that is perfect to add into your mid-morning breakfast rotation.
Well, now that we have passed Labor Day it’s time to put away all of your white clothes, pack up your beach towels, and get ready for Fall! Little known fact: Fall is our favorite season here at The Woman At The Bar, so suffice it to say that the second the clock struck midnight after Labor Day we were pulling out our Fall decorations and prepping for various autumn-themed drinks. Lucky for you, all those leaf-changing, air-crisping, apple-picking themed drinks happen to be delicious!
And since today is the first Monday in the Summer-to-Fall transition, we decided to jump on in and get started with a ridiculously delicious creation of ours: the Autumn Slush!
Happy Labor Day, everyone! We hope you are all having a relaxing holiday.
We, on the other hand, are still working away — but to celebrate the holiday have another very special reader challenge for this week’s original cocktail!
If any of you out there have visited The Happiest Place On Earth, you have likely encountered these:
The glorious Dole Whip. Pineapple Juice mixed with pineapple soft serve. A delicious Disney treat for anyone who has schlepped around Fantasy Land for several hours.
We were challenged to create an alcoholic version of the classic theme park delicacy and so, without further ado, we give to you the Adult Dole Whip, AKA the Please Don’t Sue Us Disney We Really Like You And Mean No Harm With This Parody We Just Think That If The Parents Had Access To Liquor In The Park Things Would Be Much Better For Them.
You know how in movies about the 1920s everyone seems to be fabulously dressed and drinking deliciously tantalizing champagne cocktails out of sparkling coupe glasses? Now that we have said that, do you also want to be fabulously dressed and drinking a deliciously tantalizing champagne cocktail out of a sparkling coupe glass?
Well then dust off your Great Gatsby-est attire and get ready for a 20s-inspired drink that will blow your minds!
This is a very, very special Monday here at The Woman At The Bar, because today’s drink was created specifically for one you!
Diane, one of our wonderful readers, threw down the gauntlet and challenged us to create a drink inspired by her favorite dessert, strawberry cheesecake, and we are not ones to ever turn away from a challenge–so create we did!
This is the first of what we hope to be many drinks created with your input, so if you have a drink challenge for us, no matter how pie (or cheesecake!) in the sky it may seem, send it to our way and we will put on our mad scientist caps and get to inventing!
But for now, we hope that you all (but especially Diane) enjoy Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake!
We’ll be honest: although we love all of our original drinks, there are some that have a special place in our heart. And today’s drink is one of them. Forgive us for saying so, but we tend to think this one is an instant classic. Not bragging, just truth telling.
Because really, when you take a little bourbon, a little spice, a little citrus, and shake it up with a little bit of magic, you get something absolutely delicious!
