Dear Day Drinking,
Why do you tempt me every weekend day I have no plans? Just because I don’t have something scheduled, doesn’t mean my time wouldn’t be better spent doing laundry, going grocery shopping, working out or cleaning my apartment. I could even do something fun like shopping or TV binging, but no – day drinking always wins.
The only thing worse than the guilt you come with is the eating. Why do you make me crave taco bell, pizza, McDonalds, bags of chips, popcorn, ice cream, etc.? Day drinking, I gave up pizza for Lent. Do you know what you made me do? Eat pizza.
I’m 25 years old. On Saturday mornings, my Facebook should be full of nothing. Or posts about being pregnant or getting married, but no, it’s full of evidence of you, Day Drinking. You. What self-respecting 25-year-old woman posts this on her Facebook page on a Saturday morning:
So, Day Drinking, stop being such a tease. Leave me alone – get out of my life.
Why can’t I quit you?
In the Twin Cities, there are hundreds of options for happy hour. If you’re anything like us, you’ve had to answer the tough question: Where do you want to go to happy hour?
Easy answer: Check on thrifty hipster. The awesome website, turned iPhone app, uses your location and the time to give you a list of potential happy hour locations with the best deals.
Based on my location today, I’m given a list of great bars and restaurants nearby that have happy hour deals going on. All these bars – Wakame Sushi, Burger Jones, Toby Keith’s and Cooper’s – are great, and I’m sure I – and my wallet – would be happy going to any of them.
In addition, there is a tab for Taxis & Rides so, when you drink too much at happy hour, you have a handy list of available rides home so you’re not stranded or – more importantly – don’t be a dumb ass and drink and drive.
Note: don’t leave your wallet or purse in the cab. It’s a pain to get a new license, cancel credit cards, get new credits cards and get your pride back.
So download this app today! You won’t regret it.
Yes. This post is about tequila and not vodka, but every liquor-drinking lady loves herself some tequila on a crazy Friday night – or low-key Saturday afternoon…
Like we’ve said before, when you drink as much as we do, you have to be careful about your calorie intake. Unfortunately for us, margaritas are one of the worst drinks for you. There are a variety of different types of low-cal margs out there, but who wants to pay $20 for a tiny bottle of low-cal margs when you could just make them yourself? (Not to mention, you’ll have tequila left over for shots!)
We made our skinny margs with tequila, club soda and lime juice…
- 1 part tequila
- 2 parts club soda
- 1/3 part lime juice
This tastes just like a margarita! I was pleasantly surprised, mostly because I know tequila tastes disgusting with my old stand-by Diet Coke – yup, I’ve tried it.
Note: Turns out a whole shot of lime juice is disgusting. Don’t put a whole shot in your drink because you’ll definitely be wasting tequila.
“I LOVE TEQUILA” – Ray Ray
What girl could say “no” to a Vodka called Little Back Dress? Well, not us.
Since we had no plans this Saturday, we ventured out to the liquor store, bought some new types of vodka and decided to start a vodka review series (a.k.a. get drunk by ourselves at 5 p.m.).
Any good vodka connoisseur knows that the hardest part of trying all of the delicious, new vodkas out there is finding something equally delicious to mix with it – mixer should be low in calories because you’ll eat those later.
So we mixed the Black Cherry Vanilla Flavored Vodka with Tonic Water, and these were the notes we took on Saturday night:
“NO TONIC WATER – GROSS.
CLUB SODA – BETTER.
DIET COKE – BEST!”
Winning Mixology Combination:
- 1 part black cherry vanilla vodka
- 2 parts club soda or diet coke (stay away from Tonic Water, you guys)
*When drinking with club soda, add a frozen cherry or three if you’re feeling fancy – dual purpose: looks fancy, keeps drink cool.
After branching out and trying tonic water and club soda, we had to go back to our old favorite – Diet Coke – because the other ones were pretty bad. Go figure, it ended up being our favorite because, let’s be honest, we’ll never change.
Note: Be sure tonic water & club soda are not shaken up – will spray entire kitchen and you with water/soda if it’s shaken up.
Here we are again, Sunday morning. I have a love/hate relationship with you. All I want to do is keep drinking but the thought of alcohol makes me want to vomit. Anyone else feel the same way?
Because my life is such joke here’s what I’ve been up to this morning: Watched Say Yes To The Dress Bridesmaids, ate a bag of popcorn, almost threw up, woke up at S’s place (not shocking), watched the Nick and Jess kiss three times, researched hot guys on the internet, drunk dialed my friends and talked to the only one that answered, watched Sarah clean the kitchen, made a business plan to open a cat cafe in the states, made Sarah do my laundry and the best part – opened another beer.
Sunday funday, long hair don’t care, SUPER BOWL BEYONCE, livin’ the dream.Waking up still drunk is a curse and a blessing.
BTW did you notice there are two posts today? That is a productive Sunday. Everything is downhill from here.
