The Carrie Shot

*The Carrie Shot*
  • Finlandia Grapefruit
  • X-Rated Vodka
  • Hypnotic
  • Watermelon Pucker
  • Pineapple Juice
At the 7 Cedars Casino the other day I sat down at the bar.  It was the day after St. Patrick's Day and so there was a live band that was playing Irish drinking music, which I was enjoying.  When they played the traditional Irish songs, I could close my eyes and remember how it felt to be there.  Lovely.  Only problem was, not being able to drink beer (I LOVE Guinness), I had no idea what to order.  This sweet bartender who just so happens to be a friend of my sister asked me what I wanted.  My face had a blank expression.  I told her I had no idea, except that a fun shot without Kahula or Bailey's sounded good.  And so she made up this awesome shot and named it after little old me!!!  I took a sip and loved it!  Refreshing, sweet, tart and very crisp.....perfect for Spring : )  The rest of the evening all my friends (except the DD) and the other bartenders ended up trying it.  Honestly it wasn't a hit with everyone, but those who liked it really liked it.....and they all thought it was fun to try something different.  That was a fun night.  I have Joey, my Mom and Waylon to thank for that!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!
<3 Carrie
