I am an insomniac. I can't sleep at night because I'm so stressed out lately. I'm thinking that maybe cocktails might be just what I need. Thing is, it's been years since I've had a drink. I'm not an alcoholic or anything, I just don't keep alcohol in the house. I think that's fairly prudent with two teenagers in the house. I did buy vodka a couple of years ago to make Limoncello for Purim. I gave one bottle away, the second bottle is still in my freezer, and I never remember it's there.
Lately I've been seeing a lot of those bottles of mixers for cocktails like Appletinis and Mojotos. I've never had either, but the mix looks really tasty. The bottles are so pretty. Nice bright colors, too. I haven't a clue as to what to buy though. I don't know what I like. I haven't really had cocktails other than margaritas, which I love, since college. That was, oh, eons ago. I used to like a Tequila Sunrise and Gin and Tonic. I never liked anything ultra sweet or very dry. I wasn't a Whiskey Sour or Gimlet type of girl, either.
What I'd like from you, my cheeky little monkeys, is some suggestions for easy, drinkable cocktails. I think I'd prefer to have something au currant, so maybe I wouldn't feel like such a loser if I ever should go to a bar and have a drink. Not that this is going to happen, but being a former Girl Scout, I like to be prepared for all occasions. I can't really afford a lot of different types of alcohol and I don't really want much in the house, but I'd like to try drinks with either Vodka, Gin, or Tequila. No whiskey or scotch for this mama.
