I actually made this a couple of weeks ago, but haven’t had a chance to blog about it yet. My silly life keeps interfering with my extracurricular activities. Imagine that.
Before I get right to my Strange But Good offering, I need to explain two things, and what better way than bullet points.
- I am a morning person. I’m not saying I jump out bed before the alarm goes off (every time), but I do accomplish a shitton of things in the early hours. It’s when I’m the most productive. On weekends, I pretty much get up and just go like a mad woman or the energizer bunny. With Easter nearly upon us, the bunny seems more fitting. I can clean the house, wash clothes, bake muffins, handle food prep, workout, go grocery shopping, write blog posts, and well you name it. I’m a total badass in the morning. With that being said, if you need something from me after 8 p.m., well then it’s probably not going to happen. I’m awake, but barely functioning.
- I don’t really like beer. I’m sorry, I just don’t. I think it tastes like swill because I, of course, know what swill tastes like; it’s my specialty. I can, however, appreciate a hard cider on a hot summer day or a crisp fall day or perhaps even a sunshiny spring day. Hard cider and me, we’re friends. I’ve also been known to have a glass of white wine on a rare evening, although two is really my limit. Two glasses pretty much ensures I’m sound asleep by 9 p.m. because I know how to rage. One of my favorite alcoholic beverages though would have to be a little bubbly. I like champagne, and the sweeter the better.
Now that you’re aware of these little nuggets of information, I’m guessing you know where my Strange But Good is going.
Given my preference for the crack of dawn, I’d prefer to have my cocktail in the morning hours, and what better a.m. drink is there than a Mimosa, ignoring the whole Bloody Mary thing, which I’ve never tried, although considering all the fruits and veggies involved, I probably should.
Now I know a mimosa all by itself wouldn’t be so strange, so what I am proposing today is a Smoo-Mosa, which is what happens when your breakfast smoothie and champagne collide. What’s not to like? It’s a little bit fruity, a whole lot sweet, all in a fizzy little number. Plus, you have a justification to drink before noon, not that any is needed if you’re responsible about it, emphasis on the word responsible. I’m not trying to create any raging alcoholics here.
It might not be as crazy as a Beet Juice Mimosa, but I’d have to say it’s still pretty strange. Plus, I figure if I’m going to start my Saturday with a drink, I might as well do it in style, with a Smoo-Mosa. Anyone else want one?
What’s your favorite time of the day to indulge in a cocktail, and what’s your cocktail of choice? Any exciting plans this weekend?
P.S. I’ve got a guest post on Jessie Bear’s blog today. If you feel so inclined, you should check it out. Even if you aren’t feeling it, you should check it out. 🙂
P.P.S. I’m doing another Week In Review link up party on Monday, and I want you to be a part of it. It’s going to be fun; I’ll bring the Smoo-Mosa’s. Think about it, then write about it, then link about it.
