Kocktails with Karly: THE ELLEN

Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone but weeks later I am still singing praises of thankfulness for the latest Kocktails with Karly. This year we stayed home for Thanksgiving for various reasons and were without any family visitors. Our dear friends, Chuck and Ellen, were in the same boat and we had the brilliant beyond […]

Kocktails with Karly: THE NASTY WOMAN

My Fellow Americans, HAPPY ELECTION DAY! Or just, Hey – It’s election day. Or possibly the first day of the Last Days. Whatever, just figure out a way to get through the day. Thought I’d share a Kocktails with Karly that’s election themed AND that I ended up not really loving because I haven’t completely […]

Kocktails with Karly: Ruby Red Martini 

It’s been TOO long since I’ve done a Kocktails with Karly – but I am back at it, so let’s just jump right in, shall we?   I’ve finally delved into another flavor of Deep Eddy Vodka! Yay! Only fifteen million years behind! I started buying the Deep Eddy Lemon and it was a major […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Makeshaft Wine Sprtizer 

TGIF beautiful people! Welcome to Kocktails with Karly!  If there was a Makers Faire for cocktails, I would be the Queen Maker simply because of how bomb this spritzer is. Seriously.

Kocktails with Karly: The Whiskey Smash

Welcome to Kocktails with Karly! Let’s do this! I was pressed for time this week… Oh, vacation, how much preparation you doth require!

Kocktails with Karly: The Blackberry Moscow Mule 

It’s almost summer, bitches. Time to bust out the berries! A Moscow Mule, as you know, is a beloved staple in our home. We always have ginger beer, vodka, and limes just in case we feel so inclined to make a delicious mule, and recently I’ve started buying more scrumptious BERRIES.  I made a raspberry […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Old Fashioned 

Conoisoirs of class! Hello, dahlings!    My Johncarl, my firstborn little boss of a boy, my baby king turned two on Saturday – and naturally, we had a badass party. My mom flew down to Austin to spend the week with us and be our “party bitch” – a role which proved quite fruitful! Some […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Backyard Punch

My darlings. My loves. My sweet peas. My homies. I didn’t have my shit together this week and although I DID make a cocktail for Kocktails with Karly, I utterly failed at taking pictures or even drinking the completed libation. I did not like it and forgot halfway into making it that I was supposed […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Paloma

Happy FRIYAAAAAAY!  I’m so happy, guys. Why, you may ask?  Because after FIVE (practically six) days alone with my two little homies, ALEX COMES HOME FROM HIS BUSINESS TRIP. The heavens have opened and God is smiling upon me – I made it through the week. I am a badass. But badassery aside, I cannot […]
