Five Star Swimming Pool

So a friend of mine just invited me to the SLS rooftop Thursday night. If you don't know what the SLS is, no worries, it's only the best best best best best best best best hotel in Beverly Hills. It's got the most awesome views of LA and I am madly in love with this place!
In preparation for the night I thought it was time to find a new cocktail. I hate ordering the same damn cocktails over and over. Then I came across this chic recipe for a Swimming Pool. There are a lot of variations out there. Some with 2 stars and then this one that garnered FIVE STARS! So, it's got to be killer, right?
I have no idea, which is why I am going to order it as soon as I get to the SLS. And I learned this cool trick for making sure you order something different when you go out: make your standard go-to cocktail at home and get your fix first, then go out and drink something completely different! Stand-by drinks work best when you're in mixed company and you don't want to sound like a lush!
Check out this awesome drink that Vingler and mixologist, @rodiziketan approved of! :) It involves lemons, which is perfect for LA living and the Lemon Festival!
To make the Swimming Pool, mix everything but DO NOT SHAKE. Pour into a sophisticated glass and float the blue curacao on top. Don't be shy when asking for another!

What A Coke Does To Your Body In 1 Hour
I'll be the first to admit that I love Coca Cola. But it's absolutely horrible for us. A very detailed infographic supplied by TheRenegadePharmacist.com has officially proven again how bad Coke is for your body (WE KNOW). The American CDC has said that 25% of Americans drink soda on a regular basis which is a hefty reason why obesity has run rampant. Sugar is the main culprit since an average can of soda can contain 3 tablespoons of sugar and 4 tablespoons if in a 12-ounce-bottle. Coke is one of the most popular soft drinks in the United States with a massive marketing empire so there will never be a day where we won't see it somewhere. But there comes a time where you need to take a moment and see what you're putting into your body. Let's take a look : All it takes is ONE Coke : First 10 Minutes : 10 teaspoon of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don't immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down. In 20 Minutes : Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your live responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There's plenty of that at this particular moment.) In 40 Minutes : Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness. In 45 Minutes : Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way. In 60 Minutes : The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine providing a further boost in metabolism. This is a compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. After 60 Minutes : The caffeine's diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you'll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium, and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water. As the rave inside of you died down you'll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You've also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in theCoke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like having the ability to hydrate your system of build strong bones and teeth. Why you should care? - Coke weakens bones and teeth. - Increases your chance for getting diabetes. - It slows your metabolism, especially long term. - Aspartame in the soda leads to disease and organ irritation. - Coke has negative affects on fertility. - It leads to weight gain. - Can worsen asthma or increase risk for heart disease. - Cancer, Osteoporosis, and Kidney issues are common in people who drink soda. - It's expensive to continually buy it. - Diet sodas are a scam and false advertising. All soda is bad for you. - No nutritional value. - Raised cholesterol and specifically increased belly fat. Do I need to say more? Coke or soda for that matter is never a good idea. (But don't worry, I still love it.)
Fall Wedding Must: Caramel Apple Martinis

The Caramel Apple Martini (or carameltini, as it's sometimes called) is a martini with October leaves, Indian Summer bliss and apple orchard nostalgia. Sounds amazing, right? Let's not delay the imbibery... Caramel Apple Martini Ingredients 2 ounces Apple Cider 2 ounces Caramel Vodka 1 ounce Butterscotch Schnapps Sliced fresh apple, caramel, and / or cinnamon sugar for garnish. Rim your martini glass with caramel or cinnamon sugar. To get the cinnamon sugar to stick to the glass, dip the rim in a little apple cider, then the cinnamon sugar. Combine the apple cider, caramel vodka, and butterscotch schnapps in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Pour mixture into the rimmed martini glass and garnish with a slice of fresh apple. Simple. Delicious. Impossible not to be a favorite! It’s a little on the sweet side, so it would pair very nicely with a salty appetizer. It could also finish up a meal as a substitute for a sweet dessert. And you all remember my advice about cocktail hour, right? Don't make your guests wait around forever between the recessional and for cocktail hour to begin. Drinks and bubbly should be being poured as guests are entering. They should be reaching for a coupe or a high ball. You choose. For more cocktail fabulousness, click here.

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!
