The holiday season is in full swing and like many other parents; this is a very busy and stressful time of the year. From working, blogging, shopping, making sure everything is perfect when family comes to visit and my daughter’s school Christmas party. There are times that us as parents need some time to just relax and even have a couple of drinks after you wind down after a long day. Usually I like to wind down with a couple of beers but there are times that I want something with some flavor to it. One of my favorite sites to visit for cocktails ideas, appetizers and a little bit of everything else is Sunset.com. One of my wife’s favorite drinks to mix is 7Up, which could be purchased at Safeway along with anything you need and while you’re at it you can get your groceries there and also get them delivered. We’re always looking for ways to mix it with some of our favorite alcoholic beverages and also non-alcoholic for the kids. Basically we put together some of the alcohol we have and tried to figure out what combination we thought would taste great. While playing some Christmas music, enjoying ourselves and sharing some jokes and here are some of our choices below.
For the kids we bought all kinds of stuff to go with the 7Up but they wanted to pour the drink and just add candy canes to it.
My wife decided to she loved the red color of the kids drink but decided to add Green Apple, Candy Canes, Peppermint Schnapps’ and the Fireball drink also.
Last but not least, I’m usually always mixing crazy stuff together so I went a different route by mixing 7Up, Peppermint Schnapps, Green Apple Smirnoff and the Sour Apple Pucker. Let me tell you that this was so good but be careful because it was knock you on your butt.
Now whenever you’re shopping at Safeway you can find everything you want whether its wings, pizza or whatever you like to eat on while drinking. Also, visit Sunset.com to Find more fun holiday drink recipes and entertaining tips!
