Tie One On Tuesday

new years squirrel

First off...it has been WAY too long since I've posted a Tie One On Tuesday. WAY TOO LONG! Let's remedy that, shall we?

Did you know that today is National Squirrel Appreciation Day? Neither did I. Let's raise a glass to our nut loving, fuzz butt shaking, bird seed stealing friend.

I love Pink Squirrels, both the drink and the idea of a bright pink squirrel.

Pink Squirrel
3/4 oz creme de noyeaux
3/4 oz light creme de Cacao
1 oz cream
Mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, strain and serve in a martini glass. If you want something a bit more frosty, combine in a blender and set to whip.

Maybe pink isn't your color? How about a Chocolate Squirrel?

3/4 oz amaretto almond liqueur3/4 oz  hazelnut liqueur3/4 oz brown creme de cacao3/4 oz cream
Blend in a shaker with ice, strain over a chilled martini glass. 

Oh my goodness! I really think this next cocktail will have you flying!

Did you also know today was national Hugging Day? Grab a few cocktails and hug your favorite fuzz butt! Just make sure you have all your shots.
