so in honor of it still being august (yes! it’s still august! let me hold on to these 6 days, please!) i thought it’d be appropriate to post my new favorite summery beverage. now, i have this thing that i do, you see. i convince myself that i “invented” that when in fact, i’m sure i didn’t. probably. i mean, i am probably not the first person in the world to think up this combination of drinks, but i still like to say that, yeah, i made that up. like that one time we were at a cabin party (my friends and i used to have “cabin parties” every summer, when we still had a cabin – moment of silence for the cabin – and they were awesome) and i “invented” this drink, by mixing dr. skipper (never dr. pepper, it must be the off-brand, dr. skipper) and peach schnapps. yeah, that’s it. and i dubbed it “the hytta” because hytta is norwegian for cabin, don’t you know. (uff da.) (i’m norwegian.) well, guess what! i just invented a drink! i’m calling it the “cherry delight” because i honestly can’t think of anything better right now. so! i thought you might want to make one too, and we can cheers to prolonging the summertime, just a liiiiittle bit longer!
here’s all you need:
here’s what you do:
fill a glass with ice
add about a half shot of rum
add about a half shot of cherry vodka (or vodka + grenadine mixture, but this cherry vodka is soooooo good!)
add a shot of triple sec
and fill the rest of the glass with sprite
this picture was boring, as the drink really isn’t anything to look at (it just looks like water) so i added this awesome deer/moose thing that my brother got zack for christmas. instantly makes the picture better, right?
et voilà! super easy, super delicious, and super my own invention. at least, i think.
p.s. so zack hates when we match. like, if we accidentally both are wearing striped shirts, he’ll change immediately. makes me sad, because i think it’s really cute to match, but for some reason he doesn’t agree? i don’t know. men. anyway, last night, as we went on our evening walk around the neighborhood (how married are we?!) i just happened to put on a shirt almost identical to the one he was wearing, but he didn’t notice until we were already half way down the street! success! so i snatched a couple pictures. i needed to save that moment. you know, for posterity.
happy saturday! hope you all are enjoying the night with perhaps a summery drink (or two) and maybe a nice neighborhood stroll. hopefully in matching shirts. do it. for me?
How sweet it is
Bahaha you go girl. My mans the same way he’d die, I love it! :)
it was really a once-in-a-lifetime type of deal. i had to savor the moment!
That drink sounds so delish!
Too funny! You are hilarious! Hubs doesn’t like to match either. I’ve gotten to this place that I don’t mind either but when it happens i get excited like we’re on the same wavelength and everything!

My boyfriend hates to match. Sometimes when he comes over to my apartment before we go out I wait to get dressed to see what he’s wearing. And then he always nixes my outfit haha. And great drink invention!!
haha silly boys! they have no idea how fun matching is! ugh!
nice mix and oh you two are so adorable!
awww thank you!
I will definitely need to try that drink of yours. I love jello shots, maybe I could use this for a yummy jello shot or something. You guys are adorbs. My lovey is the same way, when he notices we are wearing something similar he would definitely change right away. But then again, I am the same way with my mom, just the other day I was wearing a peach top and khaki shorts and she was wearing a peach top and khaki pants and omg, i just wanted to get as far away from her as possible. ahahaha.
aw, thank you!
ooh, yummy, let me know how that tastes, if you try it!!
i would definitely do the same if my mom and i were matching! too funny!
I love matching my hubs!! :) You two are the cutest!
And we totally go on walks around the neighborhood, we just did last night!
I must admit… I’m super excited for August to end! September and October are going to be the FUNNEST months! Going to Vegas twice, baby showers, camping, etc! And cooler weather! Can’t WAIT!
