back when i lived in jacksonville…we ladies had a thursday tradition. champagne thursdays. girls night…allysons living room…making stupid videos on her mac, listening to gaga and sipping champagne. i realize it sounds lame, but some of my favorite jacksonville memories were in those hours of being silly and girly with the jax family.
so much has changed for all of us. some have babies (yes, plural), and we live all over the country. marriages, new houses, and let’s not forget ive been busy learning to cook. champagne thursdays seem so far away. but i can certainly start a new tradition on the blog as a nod to my favorite ladies, bad pop music, and dancing in living rooms.
so every thursday…or at least most thursdays…i’ll be posting a fun new cocktail on the blog! i’m going to call it thirsty thursdays…come thirsty!! and please feel free to suggest new drinks for us to try or to work from! i would love your ideas!! i will probably run out of creativity about 3 weeks in :)
first up: the whipped white russian. YUM!!!
this is dessert in a cocktail glass. white russians are good on their own…but add whipped cream vodka and you get something much better.
we decided to go full non-diet mode with this one…as in…we used heavy whipping cream as the base. if you’re trying to cut some calories, this would also be good with half and half or even milk. not quite as creamy, but still good.
even though its not a hot drink for this cold weather…it still feels warm. i have always liked a pretty winter white.
side note: isn’t that straw cute? i got them from groopdealz. love that site. totally off topic.
you could also use caramel vodka (kissed white russian) or marshmallow vodka (fluffy russian?). tasty tasty tasty.
let me know how you like it, and if you have any other ideas for upcoming thirsty thursdays!
