Happy Hump Day, readers! 

This week’s Monday Funday drink, Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake, inspired us to take some of the same flavors, streamline them, and see if something good came out of it. And guess what? Something great did!

Monday Funday #21: Diane’s Strawberry Cheesecake!

DSC11

Happy Monday, everyone!

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!

Friday Liquor Spotlight #12: Stoli Flavored Vodka!

SV2

Happy Friday Everyone!

Flavored vodka. We have a rather mighty love-hate relationship with you. Most brands are far too sweet, and some of the so-called “flavors” are so ridiculous (cake? s’mores??) that we nearly go into rage blackouts when we think about it.

But occasionally, a little flavored vodka can really be delicious–but only if you buy Stoli. All other brands must bow before their greatness.

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

Guys, seriously, we cannot let go of our Averna infatuation. It would be fair to call it an obsession. It may even be fair to call it stalking. Someone may need to call the authorities to report us.

But until that time, we will continue to use it to make deeelicious cocktails, even if they are of the quickie variety!

So lets get down to business before the cops show up and take us in for questioning…
