4th Of July Cocktails “Merica” Style

We’re on our beach vacation this week. I’m asking Romance Writers Weekly Authors to post their favorite summer cocktail or thirst quencher and your favorite place to drink it. A few years ago on vacation, we made cherry bombs. Soak Maraschino cherries in Fireball and Vanilla Vodka then rolled in blue sugar and dunked in melted white chocolate. Watch it, they’ll sneak up on you.

2019 Cocktail “Merica” Style

This stars and stripes themed cocktail concocted by my son starts with Red White & Berry Vodka.

Add the new Liberty Brew Mountain Dew. Over ice, as a snow cone or put in blender for a smoothie, tastes like a firecracker Popsicle. It’s also easy to take down on the beach.

Usually, I just like whiskey on the rocks when it’s time for a cocktail, but in the summer, I like a Margarita or two. Chi Chi’s Gold mix and a cap full of 1800 Silver Tequila kicks it up a notch! Spinning around on a float in our pool is my favorite place to drink this thirst quencher. What’s your favorite summer drink?

Now on to Brenda Margriet If you missed the lovely Leslie Hachtel, please take a step back on the hop.

This week on Romance Writers Weekly the question is: “I love daily mantras, they get me through the day and almost always gets me through tough times. What gets you over the hump of a really bad day?”

Interesting topic this week as I’ve recently taken up meditating in the morning. I don’t have a chant per say while I’m meditating, however, I made up a little pray or mantra years ago. Not long after my son was born. whenever I’d start to obsess and worry, I’d say to my self, “Safe, healthy, happy family.” I still revert to this when I’m worried or stressed.

I’m You-Tube browser and recently stumbled upon a video by Joe Dispenza. I went on to buy his book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself. It talks about all the negative mind speak most of us do and how it only short-circuits the bounty of what the universe is capable of sending our way. In other words, you receive what you’re sending out.

These days, I’m in serious need of changing my inner voice. Thinking healthier to be healthier as well a navigate the unpredictable upcoming changes at work.

Now on the the next RWW author on today’s blog hop Jenna Da Sie. In case you missed A.S. Fenichel please drop back to see her mantra.
