Homemade Coffee Creamer February 1, 2012

Filed under: drinks — meier1014 @ 9:18 pm

I have recently started drinking coffee. I know, weird. But my coffee habits have come with creamer habits… I love coffee creamer. But it’s exspensive and has so many chemicals. So, when I saw this recipe on Pinterest I HAD to try it. Especially since I had everything I need already. It was beyond simple, so give it a try.

Have you Whipped? October 3, 2011

Filed under: drinks — meier1014 @ 10:45 am

We made trip to BevMo this past weekend to price a specific type of vodka. Well it turns out it’s cheaper on base then at BevMo, which we thought was very odd. But if you have been to BevMo you know the magic it holds. You never leave empty handed. Ever. Let’s just say out liquor cabinet is sufficently stocked now. During our time there we did pick up a new addition to our cabinet, and it’s amazing. At first I questioned it, because the half gallon come in a plastic bottle and was under $20. But oh man! It’s probably the best mixing vodka I’ve ever had! This wonderful new addition is the Pinnacle Whipped vodka. If you haven’t tried Whipped, give it a try. It truly is fantastic! Here are a couple amazing recipes we tried this weekend.

Pink Vegas October 2, 2011

As most of you know, we just recently went to Vegas for the first time. This drink is inspired by a delicious drink I had in one of those huge plastic tube type things. Chase actually stumbled upon this mixture by accident, and when we realized it tasted exactly like the pink concoction I had in Vegas we dubbed it:
