The Winnie

This drink may lend itself a little more towards the summertime, but if you're in an area like we are, it will still be in the high 70's some days...well into October. and so, you can enjoy this at least another few weeks. Or you can be like me and enjoy it whenever you want;)

When we were up in New Hampshire a few weeks ago, we paid a visit to A Castle in the Clouds, and while there we stopped halfway to the top, at the Carriage House, and took in the gorgeous views and had a drink.

They had a rather extensive drink list and many I had tried before, ergo...I tried something a little different. They had this and I thought it sounded `refreshing. and it was.

They named this after the famed Lake  Winnipesaukee, or Winni as some of the locals refer to it. There are amazing views of the mountains and the lake from here.

When I got home, I decided to try and recreate it, but making one slight adaption...I added pineapple juice.


2 oz  blue curaco
2 oz citrus vodka
1 oz oj
1 oz pineapple juice
spritz of sprite(optional)

Place all ingredients in shaker and shake vigorously for about ten seconds. Serve straight up or over ice. If you are a fan of bubbles(like me;) then top with sprite or club soda

This would also be super yummy as a margarita and subbing tequila for vodka! Yum.

Linking up with Thirsty Thursday
