Sometimes a party calls for a signature cocktail and we’ve had some that were fabulous and some that needed a few more tweaks to get it right.
How about shots? When is the last time you were at a party that served a creative and tasty shot? Not a jello shot, although we have nothing against them, but a real shot that is something besides tequila, salt and a lime?

The Oaks Lily® is the official drink of the Kentucky Oaks, run at Churchill Downs the day before the famous Kentucky Derby.
There is one thing you need to know about the Kentucky Oaks, PINK is its signature color.
The winner of the Kentucky Oaks, America’s premier race for 3-year-old fillies, is draped with a garland of hot pink and white stargazer lilies, so what better color than a pink cocktail to celebrate this day of fillies and lilies.
To make the Oaks Lily®:
- 1 oz. Grey Goose® Vodka
- 1 oz. Sweet and Sour Mix
- 3 oz. Cranberry Juice
- Splash of Triple Sec
Serve with crushed ice and garnish with a cherry and orange wedge.
Don’t forget to invite guests to enjoy the Kentucky Oaks with fabulous invitations.

Green beer on St. Patrick’s Day! All the pubs will be serving it, but if you decide to have your own party, how do you make your beer green for St. Patrick’s Day?
- To turn beer green, you can use either blue or green food coloring
- For a shamrock green beer color, use blue dye, especially if you are serving light or yellow beers
- For a bright lime green beer color, use green food dye
- If you’re not sure what color to use, food coloring is inexpensive, so you can buy both colors and experiment to get the color you want for the party
- No stirring will be required if you add 2-3 drops of dye to the bottom of your mug before you pour the beer
- For kegs, it’s almost impossible to dye the beer in the keg, so you should put the dye in each cup as you pour each beer (designate one person to control the dye so it doesn’t end up where you don’t want it)
- Be careful with the dye as it can color more than your beer if you’re not careful
13 million pints of Guinness are served on St. Patrick’s Day, more than double a normal day. What beer will you be serving?

I love this pink boxed Moët & Chandon Rosé “Tag Your Moët” set! The set comes with two champagne glasses and a gold pen to write your message on the champagne bottle. This would be a fabulous keepsake for a wedding, an anniversary, a proposal or engagement party or for your perfect Valentine wish to your sweetheart.
If you can’t find the boxed set, you could always buy a bottle of the Moët & Chandon Rose Imperial champagne and a gold marker to create your own version of this special addition box.
What an amazing gift to give and to receive!

I LOVE brownies and pink brownies for Valentine’s Day are an unexpected twist friends and kids will love.
1 box strawberry cake mix
1/3 cup oil
Mix ingredients together and spread in a greased 9″ x 13″ pan. The dough will be thick and will spread thin in the pan. Bake at 350 for 14 minutes and test for doneness by a toothpick inserted in the center coming out clean. For pink brownie glaze, mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons milk or water. Pour over warm brownies. Enjoy!
Please come back and leave us a comment if you made these…we’d love to hear from you!
