Friday Cocktails

I don't even work a traditional work week and I still 100% long for the arrival of Friday every week. Something about the collective excitement in the air just gives me the feels, despite never technically having an official weekend. I love the potential of a weekend, you know? So much good stuff can happen.

When I was newly 21 and going to the bars I would always be crippled by anxiety ordering drinks at the bar. Did I sound like I knew what I was talking about? Was I ordering right? I knew how to order two things: beer and AMF's. If you don't know what an AMF is, let me save you. They are terrible, contain about a million shots, and never provide positive results. If I remember correctly, the last time I drank an AMF was in college and my friend woke up the next morning realizing he had fewer teeth than the day before. I fell asleep with a pita in my hand, possibly on a toilet but the story varies. Oh, college.

I decided that I was staunchly anti-cocktail until discovering the glory of a Dark + Stormy many years ago via my fiance. A Dark + Stormy is the only cocktail you'll ever need. It's refreshing, it's light, and it has lime juice. Lime juice basically makes this a health drink. Right?

 

Dry Sparkling Dark + Stormy

  • 1 can Dry Sparkling Ginger Soda
  • 1 shot dark rum 
  • 1 splash lime juice
  • Fun straws and ice cubes optional, but helpful.

Happy Friday little cuties.

Big love + thanks to Dry Sparkling for partnering with me on this post.
