New Year's Eve Drink

Recommended Posts

Mmmmm, I love pomegranate martini's. I saw that on Oprah too. Although I am going to be honest & admitt that 1.5 cups of juice to 2 oz. of alcohol just doesn't work for me, so I reduce the juice quantity :)

It's a liquid mix. So you put equal parts of the mix in with your own vodka. As the night goes on, you'll notice yourself going with a 1:2 ratio of mix to vodka. Ahhh.... I've acquired many a buzz using that mix with our vodka. :)

haha Yes, as the night goes on there is less juice and more vodka or some vodka shots on the sidepinkie.gif

Ugh, you guys are killing me here! It's only 3:30 here...and I'm totally down for a martini.

 

This whole state controlled liquor store thing here in WA sucks though. Liquor costs way more here than I'm used to paying. A fifth of good vodka is at least $25 sad.gif

We have cheaper prices, but we have time & location limitations. We have to drive 20 minutes to Dallas or Addison to buy liquor, and they stop selling after like 9pm or midnight (can't remember which, because we (obviously) start buying & drinking WAYYYY earlier than that! hehe...)

WHY DID I MOVE HERE?!?! God damn dry counties....

No liquor on Sundays? How do you guys get through church? hehe...DH used to live in Louisiana and Texas and mentioned buying liquor from bootleggers on Sundays...a throwback to prohibition I guess? CA is cool except you can't buy liquour between 2am and 6am....like buying liquour at 3am is worse than waking up at 6 to drink? Never understood that one!

 

MsShelley thanks for this thread! We got this beautiful Lenox martini set as a wedding gift and haven't used it yet because we don't really make martinis, but I think I'll be buying that Rose's pomegranate mix and breaking in the set on NYE bunny_4.gif

Jami - I know, I was totally shocked about the whole no liquor on Sunday thing. Actually, and this is funny, it took me a good 3 trips to Safeway before it dawned on me that you can't actually buy liquor at grocery stores. I kept thinking I had missed the liquor section. Odd that I would miss it because the entire rest of the store is arranged just like every other Safeway. GRRRR.. Yes, wine & beer are available, but no liquor. And then the thought translated to Costco...how can I not buy premium liquor in large quantities for a great price?? Yeah, well, gotta travel home to Cali for that one.

 

One of my good friends in the OC has promised to send me a Costco sized bottle of Ketel One for my bday, but that's not till July!!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
