Share a Straw - From the Bartender's Bag o' Tricks

It's Thirsty Thursday!

Head on over to the Think Tank, check out the goods, and link up!
Share a straw (of the adult variety or not)!


As many of you already know, I am a bartender.  While not glamorous, when I was laid off in April of 2008, I happened to be able to pick up hours at a bar and grill I have worked at on and off since I was a teenager.  It was a perfect temporary solution to my immediate lack of income.


I wasn't quite sure which of my favorites I should share with y'all today, so I've decided to contribute a few!  Get your "copy and paste" ready!

~Sex on the Plantation~
For this cocktail you will need:
Peach Sweet Tea Vodka
 *Jeremiah Weed and Firefly both make good ones.
Cranberry Juice
Orange Juice

This drink is easy peasy, all you do fill a glass (size of your choice ) with ice.  For a 12 ounce glass, I use 1.5 ounces of vodka, fill with cranberry juice, and top off with a splash of orange juice.  Mix and enjoy!!

~Watermelon Martini~
Watermelon Schnapps
Orange Juice

Fill a shaker with ice.  Add 2 ounces of Watermelon Schnapps, 1 ounce of vodka, and an ounce of orange juice.  Shake well and pour into a chilled martini glass with a sugared rim.

~Berri Cosmo~
Have you tried any of Absolut's infused vodkas? Try this!
Absoult Berri Acai
Triple Sec
Cranberry Juice
Lime Juice

In a shaker full of ice, mix 2 ounces Absolut Berri Acai, 1 ounce Triple Sec, an ounce of cranberry juice and a splash of lime juice.  Shake vigorously and pour into a chilled martini glass.

 P.S. I also LOVE Absolut Mango mixed with sour.  Sooooo yummy!

So, in case you didn't notice, I like the vodka.  I hope you do, too!

Drink up and enjoy!

I could handle some Sex on the Plantation right now. My brother is a bartender and since he's an aspiring writer, he has lots of material from his clients.
