Sip On That!

Cocktails to keep you warm this winter.

It’s the season of Beer Blankets and drinking that ice-cold cocktail on the front porch of an overcrowded house party might not be as easy to sip on as you originally thought. Might I recommend a liquor blanket for your tongue, as well? Enjoy this list of drinks for January, served piping hot!

Hot Chocolate and Peppermint Schnapps

This one is by far the easiest to make. I had this at a party where the host was able to drunkenly make this on repeat on all night. Whip out your biggest pot in the kitchen, fill it with water, and put over medium heat. Add as much as hot chocolate powder as necessary, and after stirring keep it on the stove top for warmth. Leave the peppermint schnapps on the counter for people to ladle hot cocoa into a mug and touch up with a splash of schnapps to their liking.

Apple Cider and Rum

This is one big mix of whatever you like, though the two main ingredients are apple cider (store-bought) and rum or vanilla vodka (or any liquor that suits your fancy). This is the fun part: throw in anything you want for added aroma and decor! They can be cinnamon sticks, apple slices, orange slices, cranberries, nutmeg, whatever floats your boat. You can make it in one big pot on the stove (just for warmth, don’t boil!) or in a crock pot for travel.

Chai Tea and Bailey’s

Grab your favorite brand of chai tea mix (can be found at Kroger, or if you wanna get the good stuff take a trip out to Grandpa’s Cheesebarn), a bottle of Bailey’s, and vanilla vodka. Mix the vodka and Bailey’s in the mug before topping it with hot, steamy tea. Then sip that tea as you spill the latest gossip tea.

Red Wine Hot Chocolate

Wine Wednesdays feeling a little overdone? Throw in some chocolate! Put a saucepan over medium heat and add a cup-and-a-half of milk and a third-of-a-cup of dark chocolate chips. Stir until it becomes oh-so creamy, and then add one cup of your favorite red wine. Stir until its fully mixed and then it’s ready for your to sip while swiping through Hinge and Tinder!

Not romance movies that make scenes where a girl is kissed while she’s asleep. It’s not romantics and it’s not consensual. Let’s do better.

Do any guys actually respond to texts or is it just something I need to come to terms with at this point

NOT the Mormon men that will try to talk to you even if you have headphones in… walk in groups y’all!

To the girl I saw crying on the phone in Panera (Lane 6/19) I know a breakup phone call when I see one and that was heart wrenching to watch 🙁 keep your head up because you looked absolutely beautiful that day! You are strong

Shelby your scrunchies are cute and you’re fucking gorgeous
