    Default mixed drink ideas

    @KMARINO, this is up your ally so I am requesting your help and everyone else for their fav mixed drinks also. I want to bring something new camping to make cuz I am tired of the old southern comfort mixed with fruit juice. We used to make mixed drinks all the time then got lazy and stuck in a rut. I need something very good and easy and doesnt call for pineapple or tequila or whiskey cuz between hubby and I that is what we dont drink. lol. He wont drink tequila but loves whiskey, I cant drink whiskey and he doesnt like pineapple juice. Now that I have made things more difficult what are everyone recommendations?

    I LOVE gin and tonics plus the quinine in the tonic water keeps away mosquitoes!

    I also really like poinsettias:

    1/4 cup vodka
    1/4 cup Champagne
    1/2 cup cranberry juice

    A little bubbly and very refreshing!

    So @cali~jenn, tell me what liquors you both like, Vodka? Gin? Rum? Do you two like fruity? I have a good rum punch recipe and can be made by the gallon so you can make a whole batch and it will keep. (And it is easy!)

    rum is good, we like fruity but not overkill on the sweet. We wanna be able to drink a few and not be grossed out by it after a bit. A rum punch sounds like it would be yummy! Oh and we like strong drinks too, haha nothing foo-foo and too lightweight.
    @sheshistory that sounds really good but hubby also isnt the hugest fan of wine or champagne. BUT I may have to try that for new years or something when us girlies are trying to have fun too.

    I know I have told you this before Miss Jenn but definitely try so co and squirt, it's so good! Shouldn't be any sweeter than so co and juice, actually it should be less sweet because squirt is pretty tart. We aren't terribly creative with our cocktail choices so I don't think I am of much help. The last new thing I tried making was this limeade slushy thing but that has tequila so you probably wouldn't like it, I enjoyed it very much myself though . Since you like so co I would assume you would like this, I found it with Christmas recipes one year, sounded so good so I saved it but I have yet to make it:

    1 fifth Southern Comfort
    3 quarts pre-chilled 7-Up
    6 ounces of fresh lemon juice
    1-6 ounce can of frozen orange juice
    1-6 ounce can of frozen lemonade

    Mmmmmmm I will need to make those poinsettas sheshistory suggested, that sounds delicious!

    Oh man, I have a great recipe for White Peach Sangria, but it does have pineapple juice in it. You can't taste it, but it is in there.

    We get a lot of the Barcardi frozen mixers, they have Rum Runner and a Mojito one, both are very good. My fav is Bloody Mary, Zing Zang is the best mix and I put in some olive juice.

    A Madras: Vodka and Cranberry juice with a splash of lime.

    Also there are bottled Mixers out there you just add Alcohol. The Dreamsicle is my favorite of that one.

    At our parties we are more shot people: Peanut butter and jelly, oatmeal cookie, chocolate cake etc...

    Always with me

    Please share the White Peach Sangria recipe!!! And OMG PB&J and oatmeal cookie shots?! I've had chocolate cake shots and I think they are delicious but I have never heard of the other 2! I will have to google that and find a recipe!

    the white peach sangria. 1 part pineapple juice, 2 parts peach schnapps, 2 parts White Zin wine, 3 parts 7-up. We make huge amounts so we do 2 cups for 1 part. Cut up apples, oranges, grapes and place in mix, chill.

    PB and J: one shot Frangelica (or any hazelnut liquor) and one shot Chambord (or rasberry liquor) place in shaker over ice and then place in shot glass.

    My son makes the oatmeal, he adds something to it, but this is the base recipe. 1 part ea of butterscotch schnapps, Irish Cream, Goldschlager and Frangelico, again place over ice in shaker, shake and pour in shot glasses.

    Always with me
