Wine Down Wednesday-Simple Mojitos

Are there any other kind?  I don't know about you but I NEED my cocktails to be simple, easy to make, nothing that is going to stress me out to make for heaven's sake. Right?  My good diva bud, Christine hipped me to a delightful line of all  natural cocktail mixers called Stirrings that make mixing your favs a breeze with only 2-3 additional ingredients needed. We've stirred up the scrumptious Cosmopolitan and the over-the-top Margarita and now the unbelievably delicious Mojito.  I want to do the Lemon Drop Martini next!
I muddled the fresh mint in the shaker, added ice and the liquids per the recipe.  
Oh, I subbed raspberry Mojito flavored seltzer for the club soda in the recipe. 
I pick up my 25.4 oz bottles at Marshall's!  But you can get them on their website.  Your fav liquor store or Trader Joes may also carry them.  Drink responsibly and don't forget your Girl's Gone Wild 6ct. Pack  for your glasses! HINT: sign up as a Preferred Diva to get coupons!

Congratulations Grads, Class of 2014

Here's a toast to all the (21+ year old) graduates.  Job well done!  It's graduation season and what better way to commemorate this special occasion than with a personalized DGS for the deserving graduate? Create lasting memories with fabrics and embroidery in specific school colors, program name, year, recipient's name or initials and more. Congratulations, grads!

Embroidered initials, program and year on cotton

And what celebration is complete without cupcakes?  These graduation cupcakes were easy to make and an instant crowd pleaser with their edible grad caps of  upturned mini Reeses peanut butter cups, chocolate square tops and black licorice rope tassels on a toothpick.
