It's Thirsty Thursday...Lord I need a drank!!

Hopelessly Ever After

My cohost this week is Ida. She's a Miami chick that blogs over at Second Chances Girl. She and her boy toy have the cutest little guy and step siblings. You've got to go check out their pics. She's also got a few recipes and printables on the blog as well. Freebies are always a plus!! So go check out her post for today and see what she's been drankin!!

So I'm taking a page from Chelsee's book and offering a little incentive for my linkers. I'm so excited to have you guys link up and I'd like to acknowledge all those bloggers who are here every week. :) So...anyone who links up for Thirsty Thursday for the entire month of August will get a free "Sip" ad space on my blog.

The guy who owns the liquor store we go to has been suggesting this Sorbet Smirnoff for months. He, of course, knows were vodka fans and said this is some of the best he's ever had. Soooo....we had to try it. And the best part is that this stuff is "lite"!! So it's guilt free!!

I did a little research online to find some mixers to go along with it. Finally, I found something I thought would taste delicious and then...naturally...I changed it!! 

The Black Mamba

2 parts Smirnoff Raspberry Pomegranate Sorbet Lite
3 parts Ginger Ale
3 Parts Cranberry Blackberry V8 V-Fusion

Mix together juice and vodka in a shaker. Add ginger ale. Enjoy!!

I do suggest, however, that you just stick to regular cranberry juice. The cranberry blackberry was on sale, so we bought that. But...the blackberry was a little more overpowering than I like.
