Easy Beer Tasting Party

Today, my sister informed me that it was National IPA Day (she is a craft beer enthusiast) and suggested I put together a little something special for Andrew when he got home from work! It was perfect timing, because I know he is having a long week! Unlike my sister, I am not a beer girl. So instead of focusing on choosing the best IPA's, I just quickly grabbed a few of Andrew's favorite craft beers. In the future, I would love to find unique beers that the guys (and gals) would like and really get into it!

Or better yet, host a wine tasting party.


Below is some inspiration for an easy beer tasting party:


Easy, huh? I created the "printables" in order to make the tasting a little more interactive! One printable is for "notes" and then another printable for rating each beer. I also made beer labels (#1-4) to conceal the brand of each beer. However, I did take each label off anyway! Pretzels are known to cleanse your palette during a beer tasting so add a bowl of these salty treats and your all set. This was so easy to put together on a whim and would be really fun for a birthday or get-together with friends!

Happy National IPA Day, 


p.s. if you would like me to send you these printables, leave a comment! :)


Watermelon Cocktail

Happy Friday! It is just about 5 o'clock in the great state of Alabama, and we all know what that means! This is the second time I have whipped up this refreshing watermelon cocktail. The first time being at Gravine Island (or the redneck riviera) on the 4th of July! It was perfect for that hot summer day! 


This cocktail is easy-peasy. We knew we wanted vodka and some juice but the twist was this ingredient: sparkling water. We wanted bubbles but knew it was just too long of a day for champagne to be added to the vodka! It was so delicious and tastes like flavored, sparkling water (my favorite beverage)!

Note: The rosemary was added this time to balance out the sweetness. Not necessarily needed but definitely added a little something extra. Mint or basil would also be perfect! 


Looks so refreshing, right? I think I need to do cocktail recipes more often!
