Happy Hour

So earlier this week I had mentioned I was making strawberry vodka for the Labor Day weekend. Well to make sure we were on the right track I of course had to taste test so I knew what I was serving people was not awful. Let's just say it was pretty darn fantastic and went perfectly with the lovely weather we have been lucky enough to have here in the Pacific Northwest.

I found the recipe via Pintrest and it came from Shutter Bean. The recipe is so simple and easy, all you need to do is cut strawberries and pour vodka in a jar. Basically if you have ever served a cocktail at home you can do this. If you can't pour liquid or cut fruit I am pretty sure this isn't a good idea for you. I love how it came out and think this would be a great little gift for or something fun to bring to a party or BBQ.

Here are some pictures of the final product and the cocktails I made last night.

I just washed and reused the vodka bottle
because it was so perfect!


I also froze the left over strawberries in ice cube trays
with water to make the drinks pretty.



Yummy! I only wish I had a sprig of mint.
In other news Martha Stewart is still crafty and I want to make this necklace.

This is pretty cute and easy to DIY.

Thank goodness for Friday and a 3 day weekend! I hope you all have a happy and safe weekend!

  2. Seriously cherries and brandy? I need to find that recipe. That sounds like an amazing fall drink waiting to happen.

    So far the strawberry reviews have been awesome. You do have to be careful though it is a sneaky drink because you can't taste the vodka!
