recipe ((izze cocktail))



Here we go with that color scheme again. 

I love a good cocktail. I had one similar to this at a local sushi place before Christmas and decided to try my hand at making one at home. I'm no bartender, but I'll say so myself that it tastes pretty darn identical. I hate getting out my shaker, mostly because I can never get the top off. This way, you can shake your adult beverage in a mason jar, pop in a straw and it's all cute and hipster and presentable and stuff. 

Here's what you'll need:


This drink is nothing fancy  to make ((although it does taste like a dreamsicle which are kind of fancy)). If it was, we wouldn't be keeping it so klassy classy by buying vodka in a plastic handle. Oh, and those clementines are simply for decoration purposes. 

Phew. Glad we got that out of the way.



Using the breakdown above ((or to taste)), pour in your ingredients.


Put the lid on & shake, shake, shake it like a polaroid picture.


Put in a straw and sip away. You're welcome.




love.

  6. One more great use for "hipster jars": have you seen the cuppow that turns a jar into a travel mug??
