Happy Hour: Sunshine Dazzler…

As found on

·         part vodka
·         1 part fresh OJ
·         1 part fresh mango juice
·         2 parts dry champagne
·         lots of ice
·         orange slices
Mix ingredients in a pitcher adding champagne last & give a quick stir. Immediately serve over ice.

I’m on a bit of a vodka kick. Probably because I purchased the biggest bottle available. We had a few days where it was almost 70 degrees which caused me to want to celebrate summer with a drink starting with “sunshine” and by popping open a bottle of champagne. I had high hopes for this one with two different types of juice, but honestly this wasn’t for me. I like a sweet drink and the dry champagne completely offset the sugar of the juice just leaving it a little bland. I can honestly say this isn’t one I’ll make again, but if you’re not into overly sweet drinks maybe you should try it.
Summers obviously over. I’m actually writing this post while waiting at the airport to go to Kansas City. Every single flight is delayed at least two hours due to “weather” or has been completely cancelled. Though Kansas City (as in Missouri, not Kansas) isn’t necessarily a "be in a rush to get there destination" I can think of better things to do with my time than sit in the airport. It’s cruel, especially since I overslept by an hour this morning and woke up in a mad panic. Now I’m sitting in the airport sans makeup and I didn’t do my hair. Nothing like being here for three hours to allow everyone coming to or leaving from our city to catch a glimpse of me in all my unmade up shame. Combine this with the fact that I’m leaving out of gate 35A. For those of you not familiar with gate 35A it is the little plane gate. I have the smallest of phobias, not really of flying, but of landing. Little planes don’t help, so every time I see this gate I’m dreadful. Little plane landings are the worst. In addition because I drank champagne last night (it’s currently Saturday morning) and woke up alarmed and an hour late I’m chugging dunkin’ donuts coffee like no bodies business which also means that I am going to have to use the little bathroom on the little plane. I think that might be more mortifying than the plane landing. Happy Friday!!!
