Do not lie to yourself – you are ready for Christmas and you are thrilled to have another excuse to let your diet go for just a day or two.
With this Christmas Spritzer you’ll be able to have some fizz with your buzz and who can complain about that? Santa, I swear I’ve been good this year.
- Red Wine
- Diced Strawberries
Pour about four cups of a light, nice red table wine into a pitcher, mix with about one cup diced strawberries, about two cups of ice and top with about two chugs of Sprite. Mix, pour over ice and top with a fresh mint leaf!
Festive, fruity and fabulous.

I mean.. come on. Who doesn’t want one of these after a filling meal. Or for breakfast, or around 3pm on a busy work day? That’s right – everyone. This might be the easiest recipe to make – ever! Ingredients may seem to be a bit expensive as you’ll likely not be able to buy a single serving. But then again, will you want only one?
3/4 ounce bailey irish cream
3/4 ounce Kahlua
4 ounces hot coffee
Pour Baileys and Kahlua into Irish coffee glass.
Fill glass with hot coffee.
Top with whipped cream and serve.

Each Thursday from now on I’ll be posting a “Thirsty Thursday” post detailing a fun drink of my choice – or yours if you have something you’re passionate about seeing!
Today’s Thirsty Thursday Treat:
Peppermint White Russians makes 2 drinks
2 oz Peppermint Mocha Kahlua (alternatively you can use regular Kahlua with a 1/4 tsp peppermint extract)
1 oz vodka
2 oz milk, half-and-half or cream
In a large glass or bowl, whisk together all ingredients. Divide between two glasses and add ice.
For a special touch, you can add a candy cane rim by moistening the edge of the glass (before filling) with water and then dipping it in crushed candy canes.
