Thirsty Thursday: Back-To-School Cocktails

Most preschools around this region don’t start back until after Labor Day, but I know many of y’all have children heading back to school this week, or you’re heading back to school yourself.  For all you ladies over 21, and mothers of the said babies heading to school, I thought you’d love to imbibe in one, two or all! of today’s cocktails!  Back to school, at last!  Back to routines and schedules.  I know many of my mommy friends are sooo ready.  Cheers!!

P.S. I wish I could take credit for these creative cocktails. More info on where I found them at the bottom of this post.

The Tardy Slip
2 oz. vodka
4 oz. orange juice
Exactly the same as a screwdriver, but you drink the vodka first,
then the orange juice shows up late and is poured into the empty glass.
Smoking in the Girl’s Room

2 oz Bacardi 151 rum
1 Bic lighter
1 Jolly Rancher candy
Pour one shot of Bacardi 151 into a rock glass.
Frantically blow out the flame and drink while giggling.
Suck on Jolly Rancher candy to mask breath.

Old-Fashioned School Uniform
2 oz bourbon whiskey
2 dashes Angostura® bitters
1 splash water
1 tsp sugar
1 maraschino cherry
1 orange wedge
Mix sugar, water and angostura bitters in an old-fashioned glass.
Drop in a cherry and an orange wedge.
Muddle into a paste using a muddler or the back end of a spoon.
Pour in bourbon, fill with ice cubes, and stir.
Serve on a plaid coaster.

The Bad Report Card
1 shot Tuaca
1 shot Tequila
1 orange, juiced
1 lime, juiced
Fill a large drinking glass with ice. Pour in Tuaca and Tequila shots.
Pour in orange and lime juices.
Serve on a homemade coaster, made of folded homework your child has forgotten to turn in.
All of these fun cocktails were found on Suburban Kamikaze’s blog.

Hope y’all have a lovely Thursday!
First come cocktails, then comes water.
Just ordered one of these.
Everyone swears by them.
