Where Did This Week Go???

I feel like summer is flying by and I haven't decided if I'm sad about it or not. I'm excited for hot cider every morning, fall decorations and warm sweaters, baking more often (if nothing else just to warm the apt up a little more:)) and changing leaves. But, at the same time, the closer fall comes-the closer winter comes "ugh". And the closer my 24th birthday comes and that kinda scares me. I know 24 is not "old", but it's older, and older is never any fun. I don't think/hope I'll ever make a show of getting older and hating it outwardly, but inside I will dread it I'm sure.

AnyWay!!!!! It's Friday:) Not my favorite day of the week personally, but it is the day I feature a cocktail. So here we go.

I still have some blueberries left over so I thought I would try and find a drink that incorporates them. I found one but the name is...shall we say....a bit vulgar.  So much so that we will simply call this drink "Drink X".

You will need

  • 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Melon Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Blue Caruaco
  • 1/2 oz Blueberries
  • Orange Juice
Mix ingredients over ice, pour into highball glass, top with orange juice.
Easy enough.

I just made this one over ice because I didn't feel like shaking it. I poured in the Carauco and Midori first and they swirled together and looked really cool. It had combined somewhat by the time I took this but you can see the blue below the ice.

Finished product. It's really good *sip*. It didn't come out very good in the pictures I took, but you know the color of the Aliens blood in Alien Vs. Predator????? Anyone??? Anyone at all?...Well it's the same exact color as this drink. Now I bet you really want to make this:).

It kinda looks like a kiwi too...that's better then alien blood.


  1. it looks exactly like a kiwi!

  2. HaaHaa oh yea I remember the alien blood and that is exactly it! I am making you tell me the real name of this drink next time I see you...

  3. I could do without the commentary on getting older…. Otherwise looks like a drink I might like to try.
