It’s Friday! No, we aren’t going to break out in song with Rebecca Black about it being ‘Friday, Friday, Every day is Friday!’ We do love Friday, though. Who doesn’t? For most people, it’s the end of the week. The night you’ve waited for to relax with friends or family. Whether your plans are to go out for the evening or stay home and relax at home, we wanted to share one of our favorite recipes from a favorite blogger of ours. Here’s to Friday!

Be Mine Forever Cocktail


The Sexi Phone Voice

We have been busy, busy, busy making changes to our site. If you have visited in the past and feel a little lost, feel free to ask us where your favorite things are.  One thing we are adding is others’ cocktail recipes to try. We promise this is in addition to what we are already doing – creating our own Martini Maiden recipes, writing about events near you, great restaurants to try, and of course. . . tweeting to keep you updated on everything.  These are still found on the right-hand side of our site – I get directionally challenged. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do!

Today’s drink we want to show you is named the ‘Be Mine Forever’ cocktail. Get out your shaker for this one. This is a win, win, win, win blog for you because there are actually four recipes included in this post. We just felt like trying something healthy. Hope you enjoy this or one of the other three posted in the suggested recipe we have linked for you.

A Royal Wedding this week?

Okay, who is getting up to watch the wedding. The Wedding. The wedding predicted so many times, has succumbed to break-ups and make-ups, and every tale possible for years in the making. Yes, there is an official website. No, I didn’t know this before I began this article. (It includes a countdown clock down to the second for the die-hard royals fan.) But I probably will get up to watch the wedding. That means so will you. Why? I have no intention of being up so early all by myself! So let’s make this a planned event, and have a cocktail ready in advance to toast to the Royal Couple!!

Naturally there are nearly as many reports of the official cocktail for the wedding. As an early toast to the couple, we would like to offer a few suggestions on what others are saying about a recommended cocktail for the wedding. Yes, That Wedding. There are many more available. You just might see one from us. This is a nice start if you want to have a toast to the Royal couple, or if you are hosting a party and were looking for the Royal Wedding Punch. We even included a link at the end with tips for hosting a Royal Wedding Watch Party. Raise your glass to the bride and groom in a toast with us on Friday!
