Summer Smashed

Hey Peeps!  Guess who's sending summer out with bang?!  Carri from Mommy's Little Monster Blake and Jessica from My Time As Mom are hosting the first ever Summer Smash"ED" ~ share a cocktail and where you go for a night out in your neck of the woods.

Let's start with the cocktail.  I have no alcohol in my house right now.  Zero.  Zip.  Nada.  But, before Carri hops in her car & speeds up this state to give me a piece of her Stoli mind, I won't bother sharing my innocent ice water beverage that I'm sippin' on.

Now, I do love a post with a picture.  But, without supplies, I was up a creek.  I could have gone the route Sarah did and simply share what sounds like an uber fab ice cold summer cocktail from her Grammy without the picture ('cause she surely painted one in my head while reading her post) or I could have gone the route my old Girl Scout friend Lizz did and magically turn her kidlet's matchbox cars into strawberries, but I grabbed my Sharpies instead.

I first tasted a Golden Delicious while dining at Silver's at the Wharf in Fort Bragg with the husband for an anniversary a couple years ago.  And I loved it.  So, when I actually have the ingredients, I enjoy this pretty cinnamony apple concoction at home now too! (You can enlarge pic by clicking on it & no amounts because it entirely depends on how strong you like it! :>)

If you all were up here, quite frankly, a night out in my nearby neck of the woods would be a new experience to share with you as on the occasion I am without kidlets at that hour, I'm probably a couple hours south, hanging out with one or more of my Four Musketeers.

But, there is a ton to do up here!  I'm in wine country, surrounded by vineyards, San Francisco is a fantastic playground for 'grownups', the beach is a short drive away, and we could even head up to the Sierras, which are gorgeous any time of year!

I've been having fun getting #SummerSmashed with some other great peeps.  I'm off to visit some more, won't you come join us?


  1. Mmmmm, that looks like a yummy drink! I'm so jealous of where you live. We have a pretty limited selection of bars, dining establishments, cafes, etc. where I live. And everything's incredibly overpriced. A good night out is usually a night in.

  2. You are so stinkin' creative! :) I love your Sharpie drawing! That Golden Delicious awesomeness sounds really good. I'm definitely gonna have to give that one a whirl!
    Thanks for the shout-out. It's always fun when someone links to me!
    And you're totally right... this linky was a fun way to send out the summer. I hope we get some fun holiday drink recipes around Nov/Dec!!! Holiday Blitzen anyone?! ha ha!

  3. Can't wait to see you!! Should I take this as your beverage wish for the 4M weekend?

  4. That sounds like an excellent adults only trip to me. I haven't been to SF in a long time.

    Love the picture of your drink.

    Thanks for joining us!

  5. Okay, I would totally get #summersmashed on this drink. Throw a cinnamon stick in it & you have apple pie. O M G

  6. That sounds awesome...and your neck of the woods sounds amazing. Yes to both please! :)


Thank You for visiting! I appreciate and am grateful for all of You who craft some of Your time to leave me comments!
