Thirsty Thursday: Southern Belle Cocktail

I found this week’s scrumptious drink on The Food Network website.  I’m not sure if y’all ever watch Semi-Homeade with Sandra Lee.  I LOVE all of her cocktails she makes, at the end of each show…alcoholic much?  Just kidding!  Don’t you also love how she redecorates her entire kitchen, clothes, tablescape, etc. for EACH and EVERY meal she creates?  A little OCD?  No, no, all kidding aside, I actually really love her easy to make recipes.  What a great idea…not having to make everything from scratch, but the dishes look like you did!  So genius!

How Appropriate, and oh, so yummy!
The Southern Belle Cocktail


  • Ice
  • 1 part whiskey
  • 1 part sweet bourbon
  • 1 part orange juice
  • 1 part lemon-lime soda
  • Splash grenadine
  • Orange slices, for garnish (or limes)


In a large pitcher filled with ice, combine all ingredients except orange slices (or lime slices) and stir thoroughly. Pour into individual highball glasses. Garnish each glass with an orange slice (or lime slice) and serve while cold.

Wouldn’t this drink be extra yummy, while baking these delicious cupcakes…or just eating them?

The recipe can be found here.
And as always, what I would be wearing while sipping away my Southern Belle cocktail… 
Happy Sipping, Southern Ladies!

Oh, and the Whereabouts yesterday was Florence, Italy!
Lovely city, hope to visit again one day!
Congrats to those who guessed correctly!

  1. Sandra Lee is dating the NY attorney general, so she is always in the gossip pages here in NY, but she is one classy lady! And, this Yankee (me) loves all your picks!
