aaaaaAAAAAAHHHHH SPAM! And drink recipes!

I AM EXCITED! Finally, finally, finally am looking forward to the holidays - baking to the rescue again. Also, Mr. S totally surprised us all and came home for breakfast today! Hurrah! Off to the liquor store for more Bailey's and thought I'd leave you with some fun drinks.

Charisma Nipples

Layer in a shot glass equal portions of: Vanilla vodka, butterscotch schnapps, Bailey's. It's pleasing to the eye as well as the mouf.

Red Hots

Half a jigger of Goldschlager, half a jigger of cinnamon schnapps, blended.

Three Wise Men
Layer: Vodka, Jeagermeister (shudders), 151

(Have enough of these and YOU'LL see a Star in the East. Jeager makes the Baby Jesus cry. And NOW the sheep are up, THANKS, Baby Jesus, sheesh.)

Champagne Royal
In the bottom of a flute, a single raspberry, a splash of Chambord, top with champagne. (This is my favorite)

One part peach nectar, 3 parts champagne - chilled. (This is my second favorite)

Off to the store to pick up a Chateaubriand for Beef Wellington on Christmas Day. (Um, that was in NO WAY influenced by my mother in law's decision to host a Christmas Dinner on C. Eve when everyone was planning on eating at my house. Ahem. I see your dry, tasteless turkey and I raise you a Beef Wellington. As Colbert says: IT'S FRENCH, BITCH.)

*alcohol squee* Champagne Royal!! Love them! My boss' wife makes a white cosmopolitan which is the only drink I might possibly like as much.

*makes shopping list*

Hurray! We call it a "Clear Cosmo" but yes! NUM. (Oooh. Wanna make it super pretty? Slice a strawberry on the vertical and float it on top. NUM. MEE.)

*clinks glasses with you*

Never heard of some of these. They look tasty.

Does this mean you and MIL have competing parties? Just picked up m prime rib for C. dinner. Yummy.
Dec. 22nd, 2005 02:39 pm (UTC)
*cough* A few are made up by me and the Mister. I'll let you guess which ones. :D

Can you believe her? Bah. Oooh! Prime rib! I need to learn how to make that! *sits at your feet, oh wise cooker that thou art*

I could never get the right mix for drinks. **bows to your infinite wisdom**

PR: I think the hubby follows the "Joy of Cooking" method where you put the oven temp way up there and bake the sucker for ten minutes, then you turn it down real low. Plus he likes em bloody.

you don't want me as a friend no more? :(

As it says on my user info, it's my reading list. Don't take offense, none is meant!
Dec. 23rd, 2005 06:46 am (UTC)
Excuse my ignorance, but what do you mean? Do you have a different account that talks about you? Or do not want to see my postings to hear about me?
That's okay.. I am a big girl, I can take it:)
I hope you are doing well.
Dec. 23rd, 2005 04:59 pm (UTC)
Hrm. I appreciate the well wishes. I mentioned my user info that says that MY flist is what I use as a reading list. What I'm interested in reading. Also, some of the people happen to be folks I know in real life.

It's nothing against you as a person, I just keep my flist small, and to people I'm either close to in RL, or who give me a hard core chuckle.

Just... let it go. There's no offense meant, so please don't take any, 'k?

Mmmmm. Champagne Royal. Just when I'm about to have a teetotal Christmas.

I get to spend it with my tiny niece, so it evens out, and I'm back home for New Years anyway. We will spend the time discovering new and exciting cocktails - last year's hit was layering tequila, vodka and absinthe, with a drop of chili sauce between the tequila and vodka. It was nice, even if it did leave you with no throat lining.

Hope you have a lovely Christmas - and your Beef Wellington is going to be gorgeous, I can tell.

(If it turns out pretty, I'll take pics!) I'm glad you're going to have a lovely holiday yourself! *snuggles kiddoes - they make this time of year sooo fun!*

Heee!! Big cut of meat fear? That's a new one! (Oh, tenderloins are so EASY. Easier than most things, IMO.)

ANNE!!!! *loves you sooo much, my lovely girl!*

Ah alcohol, I am your BITCH.

Bellinis are an old school fave of mine, and unfortunately, the voddy makes me hallucinate fairies, so no more of that, but I love that I can drink all I want and just say, "'tis the season!" and no one bats an eye.

*pets the Baby Jesus* *licks Charisma's nipples*
Dec. 22nd, 2005 06:45 pm (UTC)
Vodka? Really? Ah, 'tis a staple in the Stoney-house. No clear cosmos for you! *makes you another Charisma Nipple, for they are DELISH - forget to tell you of the vodka and watches you watching the faeries*
Dec. 22nd, 2005 07:50 pm (UTC)
I KNOW. Vodka, how I miss thee! It's age, really, because over the years I've noticed the trend. How I used to just pass out from too much of the voddy after a fun-filled eve, and nowadays I end up crawling around on the floor babbling and spending the entire next day trying to bring up my entire stomach while worrying about being abducted by UFOs.

Oh, it's FUN, of a whole different sort. HOWEVER, if I stop at two, I'm okay.

*shoots Charisma Nipples then switches to wine*

AWESOME! Drink recipes! Dude, I made your margaritas at the Housewarming/Roomie's bday party that the roommate and I threw and I now have a reputation for makeing the BEST MARGARITAS EVER!!! Now to add these to my list and claim them for my own--er--give credit to you! *g* But seriously, drink recipes good, becuase the after effect of the party was that I have more booze in my house now than I know what to do with. Usually things work the other way...I guess I win at life!
Dec. 23rd, 2005 05:04 pm (UTC)
*pumps fist in the air*
*and waves it like I just don't care*

NICE. I am SO glad to have added to your Rep. PAR.TAY. Yes, I'm a frat boy, why? :D

I LOVE YOUR ICON!! You win at icons this week!

Jeager makes the Baby Jesus cry.

Oh, gawd. Jeager Bombs. I have lost many nights of my life to those.
Dec. 23rd, 2005 05:01 pm (UTC)
Jeager is EVIL. Why I have some in my freezer STILL, I'll never know.

OH! In case the Baby Jesus shows up. He's getting a bottle full of it.
Dec. 23rd, 2005 04:52 pm (UTC)
Wow, this post is scary, not only was I drinking jeagermeister last night (dear god, that is strong, three wise men(??) would not be very wise), but I will be drinking bellinis on Christmas day AND alcohol really is my only friend. That and the bottle of pills I throw down with it.

Hmmmmm, booze! Nice!
Dec. 23rd, 2005 05:02 pm (UTC)
Mmmmm. We're having Bellini's on x-mas, TOO! YUM.

*dresses up my bottles of booze and watches my James Marsters concert footage with my friends*

I am emailing you!! I AM. Well, I'm about to, I mean.
Dec. 23rd, 2005 05:05 pm (UTC)
You are? Well where is it you email tease?

Are you seriously going to be watching James Masters singing? Cause yeah. Drink lots! Hahahahaha, just joking. But not really.

Dec. 23rd, 2005 05:16 pm (UTC)

Yes. I'll be watching him. With my Bottle Buddies™. My only friends. Heee!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
