What's your favorite (alcoholic) beverage?

 If you wanted, you could actually incorporate all those colors -- make a layered drink!

 

700

You just need to find things with the right density -- heavier alcohols on the bottom (liqueurs), lighter ones on the top. It makes it easier if you do "slushy" type drinks, because you can modify the densities by planning with the water/sugar contents.

 

Here's something you could do with a slushy drink:

400

 

 

 

You could do frozen watermellon for the pink, and maybe bits of frozen kiqi for the green?

And then for the navy, maybe some blue curacao (it's orangy like triple-sec), or some hpnotiq like in this recipe?

 

I've also seen recipes with pina-colada mix and grenadine / strawberry for pink. Though with that, the pina colada mix would have to go on the bottom though (since the pina colada would be the most sugary)

 

I haven't tried these personally, but there's definitely some experimentation you could do if you wanted :) Just figure out the densities and be reallyreallyreally careful when you pour. Or not -- you can put the drink in the fridge, and it'll all eventually separate out to it's proper densities in a few hours :)

Thanks for a great thread girls!

One of my fav drinks is Midori, Vodka & 7Up/Sprite. Some people put OJ in it, but I prefer it without. Its a little bit sweet, but more fresh than sweet. Perfect for hot summer days! 

Also, love a Bellini.

cherry vodka is divine! I like it with sprite or 7-up for an adult cherry-limeade. I also like the rasberry vodka with it.

You have me convinced now! I love the Absolut Pear Vodka, really nice & refreshing, just add some 7-up/sprite to that too!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
