WTW – Fun With Leftover Halloween Candy {guest blogger- amy}

Hi guys! Katie here. I’m taking a mental holiday today (for no real reason) so I’ve asked the incredibly brilliantly humorously talented Amy from Fix It Or Deal to help fill in for today’s White Trash Wednesday installment. And in typical Amy fashion, she has brought her A-Game. And instead of taking up anymore time, I’m going to let Amy get right to it….

I did not have any trick or treaters visit my house this Halloween. I expected as much because there are not many young children in my neighborhood and the few that there are get chauffeured to nicer, more brightly lit neighborhoods for candy. Even though I knew that I probably wouldn’t have any goblins begging at my door, I still bought enough candy to choke a zombie. Why? I don’t know. Call me an optimist. My candy cauldron is always half full.

 
Now, there is the pressing issue of what to do with all the leftovers. Well, I filled a gallon size freezer bag and left it in the break room at my office with a sign stating, “My chronic over-preparedness is now supplying your 3 o’clock sugar fix.” That put a large dent in my candy stockpile, but it did not exhaust it.
 
Then, one evening while enjoying a glass of red wine in front of the television, inspiration struck. The following drink recipes are the results of my little brainstorm.
 

Sangria

1 small orange Pixy Stix
1 glass red wine
Mix together in glass or just chase a mouthful of candy with a swig of wine.
 

Mulled Wine

1 small orange Pixy Stix
1 glass red wine
1 Atomic Fireball
Mix together and zap in the microwave for one to two minutes. Stir and enjoy!
 

Chocolate Martini

1 fun size Milky Way, chopped
2 oz vodka
Combine in a blender and liquefy on high for one minute. Don’t bother looking for your martini glasses. Who are you trying to impress? Just drink it straight from the blender pitcher you prima donna.
 

Chocolate Covered PB&J

two Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
two small grape Pixy Stix
4 oz vodka (or more for courage)
Combine in a blender and liquefy on high for one minute. Drink straight from blender pitcher while contemplating exactly how your life went horribly, spectacularly wrong. Seriously. And call your mom, she’s worried sick about you.  

 

 Reason #412 why I love Amy. Thanks sweets for what might rank as the best WTW post to ever grace this little blog.

For those of you who are new to Amy, why don’t you head on over to her little corner of the internet at Fix It Or Deal. Trust me, you may never want to leave.

White Trash Wednesday – adult beverage edition

Alright kids, I’m truly disgusted and impressed with this recipe.  And I cannot take credit for any part of this.  Two of my hysterically fun cubemates created this one specifically for White Trash Wednesday.

And it’s called the White Trash Russian:

Ingredients:
2 parts mr boston vodka
1 part creamer (as in powdered creamer)
1 part instant coffee (sanka)

Directions:
add all to a shaker with ice.
shake well and strain into a mason jar.
serve over ice.

Then, drink… While wearing jean shorts and wifebeater.

{thanks to gavin and matt!}

Equal part Vodka
4 beers: preferably something light…corona, blue moon, keystone, natty light.

wooden spoon
limes, optional

Directions:
Empty the can of frozen limeade into the pitcher. (Keep the can.)
Fill the can with vodka. Pour into pitcher. Stir to melt the limeade. Add the beers.

Garnish with lime slices and have a seat and enjoy!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m heading down to the pool.

martini at st regis

i mentioned a week or so ago that i was partaking in a weekly photo challenge. this week’s challenge was “cocktail”.
i was lucky enough to have friends that will share in my photo adventures, so i dragged them to a lovely fancy bar just to get “the shot”.

the martini above was one of many and not even the one i selected for the challenge. of course i only just doctored up the photo above a few hours ago so it didn’t look that appealing before.

but now that it’s up there, i’m thinking i’d like one…
because let’s be honest, martinis are good.
and dirty martinis are best.

white trash wednesday!

Only a tad bit early. I know, I’m a posting machine today, but that’s only because I may be out of commission for a while. If this jury duty actually happens, I may lose all of my creative juices. The dankness that is downtown Atlanta may wipe my creativity clean. Lord help me.

Today’s white trash wednesday recipe comes in a liquid form.

Exciting, right?

Are you sitting down for this….you might want to. Okay maybe not now, but I have a feeling that after you’ve had this drink you’ll need to.

Whiskey Slush Punch

You’ll need:
1 – 6oz. Can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 – 6oz. Can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 – 6oz. Can frozen limeade concentrate
3 cups whiskey
9 cups water
1 ¾ cups sugar

Combine all ingredients and stir until everything is dissolved. Freeze overnight. Mix ¾ cup slush with ¼ cup 7-Up or Sprite.
