Since I'm making the trek back to my hometown for a good friend's wedding I figured I would share my go to drink anytime I go back home. Only 2 ingredients, but my favorite drink of all time.


1 - 2 oz. vodka

Sun Drop (MUST BE SUN DROP! Found in the green and yellow can with the red lettering)

Pour vodka into a tumbler glass filled with ice. Fill with Sun Drop. Give it a stir and enjoy!

Dragonfruit Water

I made the trek back home last weekend to celebrate my birthday with my family and my brother turned me onto a new drink that is now easily one of my favorites. So I want to share it with you!

Very easy to make and very few ingredients, but the main ingredient is very important.

Dragonfruit Water

1 - 2 oz. Skyy Dragonfruit Vodka


Lemon wedge (optional)

Fill a tumbler glass with ice. Pour Skyy Dragonfruit Vodka over ice and fill with water. Garnish with lemon wedge. Stir and enjoy!



I first tried this drink at the Robin's Nest on French Island and now I'm hooked. A little lighter take on the screwdriver

1 oz. Bacardi O Rum

Orange Juice

Splash of 7-up


Pour Bacardi O Rum in a tumbler glass filled with ice. Fill rest of the glass with orange juice leaving room for the splash of 7-up. Give it a stir and enjoy!
