#ThurstyThursday: Georgia on my Mind

Happy #ThurstyThursday!!

I'm so ready for summer, aren't you?? Maybe not the "dog days" of summer, but certainly the warmer weather and more laid back atmosphere. I want to go have dinner on my patio and work in the garden. Maybe even sit in front of the firepit and have a few cocktails. Camping?!?! Yeah!! That's what I want. A good old camping trip. 

I just want to be outside. Period. 

But, until that day comes, I'll have to just turn the heat up and pretend like it's actually hot outside. We had a few warm days but the wind was blowing so damn hard you couldn't even sit outside. 

My cocktail this week has me dreaming of the beach. It's so pretty and peachy and I can only think of warm summer days maybe at a dock bar or sitting on a balcony at the ocean. And Georgians...this one's for you!

Georgia on my Mind
3 oz peach vodka
1 oz triple sec
4 oz orange juice
1 oz lemon lime soda
splash grenadine

Shake vodka, triple sec, orange juice, and grenadine in a shaker. Pour over ice. Add in grenadine and lemon lime soda. Enjoy!!

  3. That looks incredible! I love the soft pink color... Makes it seem very sophisticated and elegant.

    1. Me, too!! And truthfully, the picture doesn't do it justice. It's the perfect shade of peach and tastes like sunshine. haha. Cheers!!

  4. What a fun blog! I love everything about this drink and it's going to the top of my "must try" list once I can drink again this summer.

  5. That sounds delish - definitely going to have to try this summer! Would be perfect for a day on the pontoon!

  6. And when the peaches are ripe, this could be out of this world! I think this will be my summer drink...that and strawberry moscato...and margaritas....and anything with an umbrella....

  7. I am SO in the mood for summer and a nice juicy peach...but I'd happily settle for one (or two) of these cocktails right now. Want it!

    1. So good. I promise. I can't wait until this weekend so I can have some more without feeling the need to watch out for a hangover the next day!! haha. Thanks for linking up!! We do this every Thursday if you're interested in coming back!

  8. This sounds delicious!!! I lived in GA for about 13 years, and so this sort of has some sentimental value too. I must try it!

  9. Damn, If I comment from my phone it never shows. This is comment #2.. do I get extra credit? This rink sounds uhhmazing. I can not wait until summer is here!

  10. This drink look amazing. I cannot wait to summer either!
