{Thirsty Thursday} Cocktail Shots with the B-day Girl


During the hustle & bustle of the holidays, we tend to overextend ourselves,
volunteer too much, overdo & never say no. However, every now and then, it's important
to take off our 'Mommy' hats and just relax.

Relax...haha! I know that's a foreign concept for some of us. 
Between kiddos, husbands, work, school, dinner, etsy shops, clients, holiday parties 
& life...many of us forget to stop and take a little time for ourselves.

But trust me...we ALL need to relax a little! And what better way to recharge the
batteries, rejuvenate our minds & revive our spirits than with some quality time
with our girlfriends or husbands...without the munchkins?!?

When I begin to feel overwhelmed, I love to get together with friends,
have a fun girl's night out or just a quiet night at home with my hubby. And a
good cocktail never hurts!

Today's Thirsty Thursday cocktail is a shot. One of my favorite local
bartenders introduced me to this shot a few weeks ago...and two was all
I could handle LOL
It actually has another name...but it's not very appropriate ,) So I renamed it & used
it as a Signature Cocktail at a Black & White Christmas Party last weekend.

It's very yummy...very strong...and tastes just like Dr. Pepper.

{The Black Dahlia}

Vodka (a good quality vodka)
Sweet & Sour
Sugar to rim the shot glasses (optional)

Fill a shaker with ice
Add equal parts of each alcohol
(2 ounces of each, for example)
Top with equal splashes of Sweet & Sour and Coca-Cola
Pour into sugar rimmed shot glasses...and ENJOY!
