Raspberry & Meringue Martini

I want to challenge all the brides, grooms, event planners, etcetera, to create this fabulous martini for your wedding or special event! It's pink, fruity, frothy and takes a bit of skill to pull off the Swiss meringue, but it's going to earn you so many brownie points there won't be enough hashtags to sing your praises! Sounds great to me!
I'd love to see some Vinglers out there take a stab at making this drink too. Just because. And then let me know how well you did! @allischaaff @rodiziketan @terrecaRiley @TessStevens @Buddyesd (and many more!)

Japanese Sake Has Amazing Benefits For Your Skin
No worries, you won't get tipsy. If you enjoy a few shots of sake every now and then, you'll be excited to know that the warm drink actually has some amazing benefits when it comes to your skin. Yes, you read that correctly. A Japanese rice wine you usually pair with your sushi can have you waking up like Beyonce. Flawless, honey. According to our favorite girl Chrissy Teigen, she informed viewers on her daytime talk show Fab Life, that the popular skincare brand SK-II's is inspired by none other than sake. While most of us are probably wide mouthed with surprise, for the Japanese, using sake for your skin has been a tradition for years. They even go as far as bathing in the wine on New Year's Day to rid themselves of evil spirits. According the SK-II's, they use an ingredient in their skincare line called pitera ["derived from a strictly controlled natural fermentation process"] which is a strain of yeast found in the sake. How amazing and interesting is that? It's becoming a trend to find skincare products that happen to be infused with this all natural ingredient and the results happen to be amazing. So, grab yourself a shot glass, throw one back and keep scrolling to see a few products that will give you the skin you've always drank -- oops, I meant dreamt of.

Orange Creamsicle Cocktail
I was in the mood all day today for some orange flavored jello. But I don't know how to make it, even with a box and some "add this to this and mix" instructions. I just couldn't be bothered with that. Then I thought of Orange Julius, which would be great with vodka. Yet the more I thought about it, I thought, WHY NOT MAKE SOMETHING NEW FOR A CHANGE?!?!?!?! @rodiziketan is a Vingler that is pretty much an expert in all things mixology. He practically makes a new drink every day. His liquor cabinet is loaded with at least 20 bottles of liquor. He also preaches, "USE FRESH SQUEEZED JUICES" whenever possible. I bring him up because he inspired me to think outside my LA BOX and try something new. You can visit his Cocktails Collection that he created by clicking here. If you like what you see, be sure to follow him, clip and like. He's a cool guy too, so be sure to say hello. Orange Creamsicle Ingredients 3 oz Orange Soda 1 oz Whipped Cream Flavored Vodka 1 TBSP Sweetened Condensed Milk Whipped Cream Sprinkles Directions Add ice to a low-ball style cocktail glass. Add orange soda pop, whipped cream flavored vodka, and sweetened condensed milk Stir gently. Do not over-stir or you will lose the carbonated bubbles Top with whipped cream. Garnish with sprinkles. This is what I wanted. Still has the vodka and orange, but without the ice cream and orange juice. It's got carbonated bubbles, sprinkles and that luxe creamy texture of the condensed milk. And SWEET!
