 Serve a few tablespoons into some sprite, tonic water, a peach daiquiri, or even into a chardonnay.

You can also throw a few pieces of fruit and moscato into an ice cube tray to freeze. Add them to your drinks just like the marinated concoction.

30 Shots

If you party at my house, “shots” is the word.

I normally start everybody with something sweet, but strong, like Tequila Rose.

The next round will be a semi-strong concoction I’ve made up on the fly, like Amaretto, OJ, and Crown Royal.

The third round will be an easy, but tasty, shot, like coconut rum and pineapple juice. I normally shake the mixed shots with ice (always taste test and adjust them) and strain into the shot glasses.

Then I’ll serve something straight, like Jack Daniels. Mostly just the men take these shots, but you’ll get a rowdy girl in there sometimes.

Depending on how many people are present, I’ll have anywhere between 6 to 18 shot glasses on my tray. You can get 6 packs of 2 oz. shot glasses from Wal-Mart for a few bucks. Stock up on those, a shaker, strainer, ice, and some provisions before your next party and you’ll be all set.

If you’re having trouble coming up with shot variations, this chart will help.

Margaritaville Mixed Drink Machine

If you’re coming to my house to party, you can expect lots of mixed drinks and lots of shots. The men can drink their Bud Light and whiskey, but I like the girls to have a good time, so I cater to my girlfriends. Bunch of sexy slushes, they are. 😉

I found this amazing contraption and it looks perfect for us slushes out there!

It seems to be a time saver, too! I can add the liquor and three mixers in the containers and let my guests pick their own concoction.

It’s prepared to mix rum, vodka, or tequila. Here are the rum drinks:

Apple Pie Moonshine

Boil for 15 minutes. Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Once completely cooled, stir in the Everclear. Add one cinnamon stick to each Mason jar. Pour moonshine into mason jars and hand tighten the lids. Let the jars sit in a cool place for about two weeks for best results. The shelf life is one year. Serve cold.

Wine-a-colada

Remember those slush berries you made a while back? Now I’m going to tell you the best way to devour them. All you need is your slush berries and one of those adult capri suns in pina colada flavor.

Wine a colada 1

Cut off the top of the capri sun. Add a few spoonfuls of slush berries. Massage the capri sun enough to mix your berries with your colada. Now stick a straw in it and suck it like it’s hard!

Houston’s Best Beer Bars

Two Houston locations made Draft Mag‘s list of America’s 100 Best Beer Bars.

Here’s what they say about the ones that made the list:

THE HAY MERCHANT | Houston, Texas     (NEW TO THIS YEAR’S LIST!)

This frisky new spot along one of Houston’s main thoroughfares is brick-dressed and brings it with 78 beers on tap, 5 of which are on cask. Not only is the selection deep, but it’s one-of-a-kind: The bar lends barrels to breweries for one-off projects. Plus, the food’s got flair, from fried headcheese to Chicken Fried Texas Water Buffalo. 1100 Westheimer Rd.,

PETROL STATION | Houston, Texas     (NEW TO THIS YEAR’S LIST!)

This cozy neighborhood hideaway is small, but it hosts a sizable beer selection that makes hopheads in other parts of the state green. Join its active beer-loving community on Facebook and chat about the latest, greatest release, or just head in blindly (you won’t be disappointed) for a burger and beer in this Houston hop spot. 985 Wakefield Dr., 713.957.2875

I’m not one to just take a beer connoisseur’s word for it. (Especially after he categorized Houston in the West and not the South, where it lies. One strike and he’s out.) I’m going to investigate for myself.
