How To Turn Tuesday Into Friday

I just met Lisa Stoner a couple hours ago. And I can pretty much tell that she and I are best friends. Just a matter of time, probably not long, until we're BFF. Has that ever happened to you?
Well, she taught me the SECRET TO TURNING TUESDAY INTO FRIDAY! To my global network of imbibing and spirited friends (@allischaaff @danidee @rodiziketan @buddyesd @nicolejb @alywoah @TerrecaRiley @yernaya @jeff4122 ...), the secret is an elixir called...
Coconut Margarita
1½ ounces Patron reposado tequila
½ ounce cointreau
1 ounce coconut cream
1 ounce coconut milk
½ ounce fresh lime juice
Splash of half and half
Splash of simple syrup (1/2 cup sugar, ½ cup water brought to a boil until sugar dissolved, then cooled.)
lime wedges for garnish
Instructions
Shake and strain into a glass and serve on the rocks with a lime wedge
This is like the ultimate speed-dial to shorten the work week to hit the weekend. And all it takes is a cocktail! What other drinks can we find or come up with to eliminate MONDAYS altogether from the calendar?!?!?!!?!?!

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!
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. Fresh® Sake Bath [get yours here] SK-II Pitera Essence Set [get yours here] boscia Sake Balm [get yours here] Would you give any of these sake infused products a try?
Wedding Cocktail Hour - Don't Go Broke!
Not too long ago I remember giving sage advice to a mother of the bride about cocktail hour. She was so resolute in scrimping and saving on every last inch of the wedding prep that she actually over-spent. Clearly she didn't listen to a word I said. Well that was a complete and utter waste. My mouth was moving. Sounds were coming out. And what I could have been doing is what I should have been doing: pouring another glass of wine. Here's how you keep the booze flowing without going broke: 1. Partner with your favorite bar. Let them provide the beer and wine with a limited cocktail menu. 2. Limited doesn't mean cut-off. It means limited variety. 3. Keep your cocktails to three signature drinks. TIP By keeping your cocktails liquor base the same, you can reduce your booze costs dramatically. Consider doing rum cocktails or vodka cocktails. The Greyhound Cocktail Ingredients Freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice (strained of pulp and seeds) Flaky sea salt or kosher salt Agave nectar Ruby red grapefruit wedges, for garnish Procedures 1. Fill a short glass to the top with ice. 2. Pour in grapefruit tarragon infused vodka ⅓ of the way. 3. Fill the remaining ⅔ with freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice. 4. Transfer liquids and ice to a cocktail shaker. Add a small pinch of flaky sea salt, then add agave nectar to taste*. 5. Shake vigorously until well chilled. 6. Pop off the top of your cocktail shaker and pour everything (drink and ice) back into the short glass. Garnish with a fresh wedge of ruby red grapefruit. Makes 1 drink. The White Lady Cocktail Ingredients ice 4 parts dry gin such as Martin Miller's or Beefeater (2 ounces) 1 part Cointreau (1/2 ounce) 1 part fresh lemon juice (1/2 ounce) Procedures 1. Add the gin, Cointreau and lemon juice to a shaker filled with ice. 2. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. Serve. The Clover Club Cocktail Ingredients 1 egg white 1/2 oz lemon juice 1 oz grenadine 2 oz Plymouth gin Procedures 1. Combine liquids and egg white. 2. Shake vigorously (you want your egg white to get super frothy!) 3. Strain and pour into a coupe. Garnish with a couple of fresh raspberries. The Virgin Mojito Mocktail Ingredients 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of fine granulated sugar 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice 15 mint leaves 1 cup club soda Procedures 1. Combine sugar, lime juice, and mint leaves in cocktail shaker. 2. Muddle mint and add about eight ice cubes and shake well. 3. Pour mixture in glasses and top with club soda. Serves two.
Korean Girls Try Mexican Soda For The First Time!
Just when that whole YouTube trend of sampling foods from different cultures was losing its sparkle to me, Digitalsoju TV had to go ahead and introduce Korean girls to Jarritos. I've been wanting to write a card about Jarritos for a while now, as it's one of those Mexican sodas that are an essential part of the culture of Mexican cuisine. Sure, you can talk about Baja California seafood or the delicious carnes of central Mexico's ranching region, but what would that deliciousness be without a cold, fizzy Jarritos on the side? If you don't know Jarritos, it's an incredibly popular Mexican soda brand that's made with cane sugar and comes in a variety of flavors, including strawberry, guava, pineapple, and tamarind. In this video, the girls end up sampling the pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and guava flavors, but how does Jarritos translate in the Land of the Morning Calm? Let's look! Like any good soda, the first thing they notice is it's full of sugar. And then they all realize they're obsessed with the guava one. My favorite was the homegirl going too hard on the grapefruit. This one had her ranking all figured out. Does it match yours? Overall, these girls all agreed that Jarritos was delicious - and would be even more delicious mixed with a little vodka! You can check out their FULL commentary - plus their opinion on Squirt! - in the embedded video above. And then let me know: What's YOUR favorite Mexican soda flavor? And if you haven't tried Jarritos before, which flavor would YOU want to try? @bangtanboysfan1 @AnnahiZaragoza @fabiola12fb @abiersack666 @YeseniaLira @DianaKpop58 @reyestiny93 @AdaliaMartinez @exokpop12385 @michellefuentes @perlaaraujo73 @jessicacruz1480 @DulceOjeda @giselacampos14 @wuyifanslover @nevershoutnancy @mirandazamira @jooheony @YeseniaF @SunnyV @IlseJimenez @KpopGaby @NelyJoss @aabxo @aliciasalinas @ThyaremyCreator @Cuetlatchli @Sunflower18 @purplem00n23 @jannatd93 @Luci546 @ALEXCAMACHO @TehDL @buddyesd @JocelynPacheco @SarahRegulski @MyAffairWith @FelipeZambrano @LindaGuandique @KassyGuz96 @XDLP @alywoah @FelipeZambrano
