Tie One On Tuesday

It feels like it's been forever since we have had a Tie One On Tuesday. Oh, how I've missed it. Trust me, I haven't missed a cocktail but I've missed sharing them with you. In honor of you, the loyal reader, I have taken some requests.

My friend AlwaysInspired asked me to make up a mocktail for her since right now she can't have cocktails. Okay,  let me see what I have in my recipe book...

1 ounce agave nectar
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 ounce orange juice
3 ounces organic limeaid
1 lime wheel
rimming salt

Rim a margarita glass and set aside.
Stir agave nectar and lemon juice in the bottom of a mixing glass until nectar dissolves.
Add orange juice, limeaid, and ice, then shake vigorously.
Strain into the margarita glass, and serve with a lime wheel on the rim.

My other friend, Digital Misfit, well....she needs a saucy beverage to go with her saucy new year.

Heidi's Saucy New Year
2 oz. Banana Liquor
2 oz.Vodka
2 oz. Whiskey
2 oz. Peach Schnapps
3 oz. Cranberry juice
3 oz. Pineapple Juice

Add all ingredients to a glass filled with ice and serve to your saucy sweetie.

And finally, a dear friend, probably my best friend asked for something she could share with her sweetie on a romantic night. Okay, I'll fess up, the best friend is me and the sweetie is OMP.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry
1 oz. Godiva, dark chocolate
1 oz. Liqueur, strawberry
1 oz. Schnapps, strawberry
2 oz. Tequila Rose
1 oz. Vodka, strawberry
1 pinch Chocolate Shavings


 Put ice, vodka, tequila, schnapps, liqueur, and Godiva in a shaker.
Shake and pour contents into a martini glass.
Garnish with chocolate shavings

There ya go my wonderful reading audience, a few drinks for a few occasions. Go out, do what you will with these wonderful recipes, spread the word that Tie One On Tuesday is back, baby!
