Welcome to Tuesday Boozeday! A new post every Tuesday in celebration of making it past the dreaded first day of the week. Whether it’s back to work, back to school or back to the daily grind of life after a (too short) weekend; kick back and relax with today’s cocktail and prepare to own the rest of the week.
Today’s drink: Captain Morgan & Dr. Pepper
Today is Tuesday, but it was my Monday (my office was closed for Columbus Day yesterday). Those types of days off really throw a wrench in my week when I’m trying to find my bearings, but it also means Friday comes that much faster. So, this Tuesday, I was really looking forward to my Boozeday.
Spicy Captain and some spice in my Dr. Pepper. I’m not a soda drinker in my real life; I gave it up years ago. But in my drink life, sometimes nothing goes better with a shot of alcohol than a little bit of fizz.
My husband and I also made a huge decision this weekend. We are selling our house. Our FIRST house. And when I say, “first house,” I mean the first house that was really and truly ours. Throughout our marriage we’ve lived in seven houses in 11 years. The last three years in this one has been by far the longest time we’ve ever stayed in one place. We’re ready to keep moving forward…pushing on to a new chapter. So, this drink is in honor of a short week and preparing to say goodbye to our home on Vine Maple.
No Recipe needed here. 1 shot of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and top off with Dr. Pepper.
