Jello Shots!

These babies are awesome for a few reasons.  Number 1. Way easier to eat this way than out of your usual dixi cup.  Number 2.  They are soooo cute! 🙂

Just cut your oranges in half, scoop out the fruit, mix up the jello and add liquor of choice, and pour it into the hollowed halves to set. Once set, slice them up.

Cider, cider, cider!

I never used to be a cider drinker but I am trying to like beer and thought cider would be a good gateway beverage. 🙂 I’ve really come to like Ward’s Picker’s Hut cider which is made right here in B.C. (in Kelowna).  It has definitely become my summer go to beverage.

I used to really like Somersby Cider but I stopped drinking it because it became too sweet for me.  However, last weekend when my husband and I were on the Island our very clever waitress (Annie at Bard & Banker in Victoria, B.C.) suggested adding a shot of Jameson whisky to it.  Brilliant!  It was so tasty and made it taste dryer.  Somersby and Jameson should totally do some sort of cross promotion marketing (and I want a cut – I’m sure Annie does too).
