Just Leading Me On
On Ice

Shaken, Not Stirred


Oh, boy!  This week's topic is oh. so. relevant!  Today, Carole has us talking about our Ten Favorite Cocktails.  Let's just say this:  I need one.  We had a big ice storm on Sunday night.  Followed by a big snow storm.  Power is out everywhere.  Internet connection is spotty.  People are scrambling folks.  It's time for a drink!

Even though I prefer a glass of wine to a cocktail, I (ahem) do enjoy a good cocktail now and again. 


Here goes.  My Ten Favorite Cocktails:

  1. Dirty Martini (with at least 3 olives!)
  2. Whiskey (neat)
  3. Margarita (on the rocks; with salt)
  4. Cosmopolitan (pretty AND tasty)
  5. Mimosa (so nice with brunch)
  6. Gin & Tonic (only in the summer, though)
  7. Bloody Mary (two stalks of celery; with leaves)
  8. Pina Colada (only on vacation; poolside or beachside)
  9. Bailey's Irish Cream (technically, not a cocktail, but . . . yum)
  10. Whiskey Sour (but, really, not for years)

Bottom's up!

Whiskey is not a cocktail either. Actually some people will be deeply insulted from its inclusion in this list,,, :)


I love your list, especially #2....cocktail or not.


Mix that Bailey's up with a little Frangelica and then you've got a cocktail.

I prefer wine, too, but #3, #5, and #6 would make my list. #9 might be just what you need to survive the Big Snow Storm. Better stock up, you guys keep getting hammered! (With snow, of course!)


Looks like a good list to me! Bottoms up! :)
