Washington Redskins Jello Shots for Darcie

I did it again.

We are a Dallas Cowboys household and here I go making jello shots for our arch-rivals, The Washington Redskins.

But I wanted to make these for our good friend Darcie. Her and her family are HUGE Redskins fans.

We give them a lot of flack, they give us a lot of flack. Text messages are shot back and forth teasing between our husbands. Bets are made and won or lost, jerseys are stolen. It’s all in good fun.

It’s just what we do.

Apple Butter Sparklers

I’ve been putting apple butter on my toast in the morning to feel a little more fall-ish. You know what’s even more fun that apple butter on toast?

Apple butter in champagne.

I saw this cocktail recipe while I was reading Southern Living at the hair salon a few weeks ago. I had foils all over my head (still not ready to let go of the summer blonde) and was obsessing over all of their autumn ideas.

This one was the first on my list to try.

Can I Have a Sip?

A weekly “all things boozy” series because sharing is caring. Cheers and Happy Friday!

Check out Tina’s Tinto de Verano! She explains that it’s basically a mix of fizzy lemonade and red wine that is popular in Spain. You know how I feel about mixing juice and wine.

Also …

Bailey’s Banana Colada – Where have you been all my life?!?!

Roasted Garlic Infused Vodka – Mmmmmmmm perfect for bloody marys.

Browned Butter Old Fashioned – This guy is amazing.

White Sangria with Figs and Anjou Pears — A white sangria that’s still fall-ish. Love.

Sweet Potato Waffles with Strawberry-Vodka Sauce — Boozy breakfast sauce. Shhhhhh. I won’t tell if you don’t.

Gummy Bear Sangria — Gummy bears in EVERYTHING please.

Margarita Ice Cream Pie – I just discovered this blog and I can’t get enough!

Grilled Surf ‘n Turf Party Nachos with Spiked Pico de Gallo — I could eat these every night.


Caramel Apple Cheesecake Pudding Shots

Dear caramel apple everything,

I’m not sure it’s time yet. There are no crunchy leaves or cool breezes. I’m not in long sleeves and shorts or boots with my dresses. But lucky for you I love you more than pumpkin spice (who has to wait longer) and I’m ready to let you come on over a little earlier.

I guess the caramel apple party can start now. Break out your butterscotch Schnapps and Kissed Caramel vodka.

You have two options for these pudding shots. The knock your socks off boozy pudding shot, or the “Mmmm, I can taste the booze a little, this is nice” pudding shotI like them both, I suppose it depends on how rowdy you’re feeling. 😉

Blue and Yellow College Football Jello Shots

It may be too early for pumpkin spice lattes but football season has officially arrived and after talking to a few people I realized that my jello shot portfolio is lacking in the sports department.

I was worried about starting my new football jello shot series with Michigan. I’m an Ohio State fan… This is craziness, I know. Classic rivalry and my grandpa is going to kill me.

I’m so sorry grandpa, but the flavor combo was just too good to pass up.

My co-worker Kim told me about a drink she makes called a “Wolverine” made with blueberry Smirnoff and lemonade and I had to try it.
