Ladies’ Cocktail Night

It’s finally Friday night and after a seemingly endless 40 hour week all I want to do is slip into my soft comfy pjs and watch an endless marathon of New Girl. Of course this cannot happen without my gal pal Kendra!

Now if you’re going to have a chick flick night, you need to have some girly drinks by your side! Here are a couple of recipes I found and modified.


Mint & Citrus White Wine Sangria (from Minimalist Baker)






  • 1 bottle of sweet white moscato

  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

  • 1 lime, thinly sliced

  • 10 mint leaves per glass (if you aren’t a big fan of mint you can add less)

  • 2 tbsp sugar


  1. To make the simple syrup, microwave 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp water for 30 seconds.

  2. Add 1 tbsp of the simple syrup to each wine glass.

  3. Add mint leaves and muddle.

  4. Add a slice of lemon and lime

  5. Fill your glass with the sweet white moscato

  • ½ cup lemon lime soda (Sprite or 7-Up)

  • 1 cup sweet white moscato wine

  1. Combine all ingredients and drink
