Ice Without The Skates!

Good Morning Darlings!

I love to watch ice skaters. As for ice skating myself, not so much. But I do enjoy an icy beverage. And I love things that are super swanky.

Come along with me…

Whynatte & Jailhouse

Good Morning Darlings!

Is your tree up? Ours is. SO excited.  See, we usually give these massive parties that leave no room for a tree.

This year is different. No massive Black Tie party. Small Christmas dinner party.

But anyhoo, this is about putting up the tree. Well, not exactly, but a drink to put your tree up by.

It’s this lovely little concoction that takes Jailhouse Brewing’s Jailhouse Stout and mixes it with Whynatte.

Have you not heard of these treats? They both started in Atlanta, but I’m pretty sure you can get them anywhere. Jailhouse Brewing is creating awesome crafted beers and Whynatte is the yummiest coffee/latte/caffeine drink on the planet. Serious.

So here’s the complicated recipe:

 

Pour some Whynatte in a glass.

Top with Jailhouse Stout.

Drink.

Beer floats for Adults! Yum!

 

And you know, drink responsibly and all that. A designated driver is a beloved driver. Buy him/her a big present for getting you home safe.

xoxo, Patti

Good Morning Darlings!

I have always been interested in searching the great outdoors for dinner.

Alack and alas, I don’t even camp. But I certainly love the idea of it.

Hey! I have an idea!

I am not much of a politico, but I sure like a party.

Have a drink and settle in! Well, unless you are under 21 of course.
