How to Make an Irish Godfather (Cocktail)

Leave it to St. Paddy’s day to be the perfect excuse to drink some whiskey all for the sake of research. Really guys, happy to take one for the team here to bring you a fun cocktail! Enter: Irish Godfather Cocktails.

My first introduction to this cocktail was with my family, exchanging stories about our grandfather just after he passed away early this year. My grandparents have always enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail, every day, and it’s really a family tradition I can get behind. My grandmother told us the only way she’d drink whiskey is with a splash of amaretto on top. Genius, she is! And then she was like, “Hailey. It’s a thing. It’s called the Godfather!”

Big Batch Guava Hurricane Cocktail Recipe for Mardi Gras

Woo hoo! It’s Friday. We made it. And in my book, every hour is happy hour, so let’s get this party started! Today, as we wrap up our Mardi Gras celebration with a bang, we’re talking all about a big batch hurricane cocktail recipe! Get those pitchers ready, drink stirrers prepped and the ice made!

Okay, can you guys tell I feel about 99% better than I did a few days ago? Yep. 5 o’clock somewhere and I. Am. Here. For. It. These hurricanes were so good. You should know, though, a traditional hurricane cocktail has passion fruit, so just check out my note in the recipe section. For this, I rocked it with Guava juice because it’s what I could get my hands on. It was great. No harm, no foul, right?

And if you are from NOLA, I’m so sorry this isn’t a traditional hurricane cocktail! I’ll try next time to find passion fruit!

Light, Refreshing and Skinny Grapefruit Margarita

Okay, if you are a mixologist, you might just want to leave now. I’m calling this drink a margarita because there’s tequila involved and it pairs so nicely with my fish tacos I’m dishing out for our cinco de mayo party this weekend.

The grapefruits were so fragrant at the market, I couldn’t resist. As soon as I caught the scent walking past them I knew they would be perfect with some tequila and seltzer. Is this an actual margarita? To me it just needs tequila to be called as such!
