The Final Countdown: Monday's Edition (4 days 6 hours and some minutes!)

Well folks!! It is the final countdown to the D.R. I like my swimsuits, I think I like my dress for the ceremony, andFay moved through last week so hopefully another storm can't form. Fay is hitting FL right now, which means she will probably move up and be rain sometime this week.

This time next Monday I will be sleeping, or trying to get packed to catch my plane.

Anyway, how was everybody else's weekend? Me? I went to the groomer there nice but I miss Lynn. If I ever become Oprah I'm paying Lynn a lot of money to following me wherever. I'm not writing or scheduling this week well at least I have no plans to. That can change, I know.

Ok here's what I want to know what drinks do you like to drink? I'm about to go on vacation and the hotel is all inclusive so its time to get a list of drinks to try. Just so you know I prefer Vodka. All vodka drinks will be moved to the top of the list, all though I MUST warn you I have tried lots of Vodka drinks so yours might not make the list for me to try, since I already did. Alright get to work and let me know what you drinking or what's your favorite drink when you are drinking. *

Oh here's something to enjoy I'm sure this is playing this moment on repeat in Jamaica, along with the women's sweep of the 100. They have now established themselves as the next dominant track and field power. I love watching the sprint finals in the Olympics it's like watching the diaspora in action. Have you noticed that the final eight are usually black? Just an observation. Anyway check Usain Bolts world record run and him acting a fool after. This cat shut it down early once he won which means he really could have run it faster than the 9.69 time he clocked. WOW! time that on your stop watch. Watch it!

*I decided to add this warning so you know I'm looking for WILD and CRAZY drinks it's my vacation!!!

WARNING: I must warn you am a bit of a party girl, live in "Texico", and I’m a vodkanista ( I know WNG will love that term), so on the subject of Margaritas and anything mixed with Vodka you will find me hard pressed not to have had it.

Cape Cods (cranberry and vodka with a twist of lime) which I have also managed to have one while in Cape Cod!! Glad my favorite drink staple wasn’t Sex on the Beach. Who can drink with your mouthful and keep sand out of your … your…(I know my mom may read this)…your... hair, yeah that’s the ticket?

Anyway, the Cape Cod was my first grown azz woman drink, after drinking amaretto sours and cosmos in my early twenties. I spent my mid twenties slamming back cosmos, then I tired of carrying around girlie drinks and moved to the good old Cape Cod in my late twenties.


I have had every single fruit 'tini there is (apple, raspberry, watermelon, pomegranate, grapefruit, you name it I've at least tried it and probably been at least buzzed from too many of them) I’ve also had chocolate and white chocolate martinis, funny I don’t like plain ones at all (with gin or vodka). I’m pretty good at making them all and hold the delightful designation of crew bartender in my crew!

I have also had every flavor of margarita imaginable with every liquor (Midori, Chambrod, Grand Marnier, that blue stuff, peach…) if you can think of it I have probably tried it and probably have been drunk from it, Tequilla puts me on my azz like no other liquor, but don't get cocky it still takes massive quantities and limited time. Also know as shots! I also have had them frozen, on the rocks, kinda frozen, warm and even had a few made with handmade tequila which really is for shot taking not drink making. But oooo so good.

Some of my favorite vodka drinks are vanilla vodka and ginger ale it’s like alcoholic cream soda. I also LOVE grapefruit and vodka right now, I switch it up these days between grapefruit and pineapple juice as my vodka mixer. I just bought some Pama (pomegranate liquor) because I plan on drinking Pama, Vodka, and a splash of lemonade till the summer ends (a recipe inspired by WNG’s punch). So with that in mind leave me some real exotic drinks to try! I am up for the adventure


Be EZ,
OG

I'm so envious of you, going to the Dominican Republic and all??
I need an extensive vacation myself?? That's what I miss about the Air Force...Every year I got to go to someplace, Europe,Japan,
Southern USA..et al.

Getting down to drinks.. I like
Rum...Usually Rum and Coke...Recently I've been introduced to Pineapple Rum with just a little Coke. My wife occassionally likes Ciroc Vodka,with a little Cranberry Juice. (In fact,all the women I know are drinking that.) Do you like "Long Island Ice teas" and Margaritas?

OG, The Original Glamazon said...

@ Keith I love all the flavored alcohols. Pineapple Rum is excellent when making Pina Coladas. Rum is a very good drink for an island too! I think I’ll see what kinda punches are available.

I drank Circoc back when everyone was still drinking Belvedere and Grey Goose. Right now I really am digging Rain organic Vodka and this handmade Vodka that I can only get in Texas. And so for right now I just keep some Smirnoff red in my fridge. Its good cheap and I don’t mind if company comes over and drinks it all.

The answer I had for trying margaritas lead me to too long of an answer so I have added a little something to my post, that lets every one know what a real LUSH I am.

Long Island Ice teas aren’t really my steelo, my BFF loves them. I did have one in Long Island once, does that count. I also had Irish Coffee here in Boston, its as close as I can get until I can visit Ireland.

I also like a little scotch every now and again. A friend of mine got me on that. I’d like to have some Scotch while in Scotland in some dark dank drafty castle.

I know me and my alcoholic traveling dreams!

Blu Jewel said...

I've been to DR and loved it and can't wait to get there again.

Being Jamaican, you couldn't tell me ish when the Jamaican track & field teams were mashing it up out in Beijing. Nuff luv fi me yardie dem! *giggle*

I'm a gin drinker from way back in the day; Bombay Sapphire being my fave, but of late Tanqueray Rangur has had me cheatin big time. I'm quite the mixologist, so I'm always experimenting with alcohol.

Love!

blackgirlinmaine said...

No drink recommendations since I am a pretty basic girl when it comes to drinks, Cosmos (I drank eme before the martini explosion), whiskey sours and jack & coke. No exotic drinks for me. However have a great time DR sounds lovely.

Sister Girl said...

Well, I wish I could recommend something that you hadn't tried & you know that you've mentioned everything that I know you can mix vodka with(LOL).

You know that I'm a loyalist to Absolut vodka, & I think that is the BEST one on the market. However,I do prefer to have mine straight with a chaser. And when I do blend,it's either with ruby red grapefruit/cranberry/pomegranate juice.

But I wonder too if grape juice would do anything ? Also, I didn't hear you mention if you've had it mixed with V8 ?....LOL


Tequila/Gin will kick my azz everytime NO MATTER what amount !

T.

OG, The Original Glamazon said...

@SG- no no V-8 but I forgot to mention Red Bull and Vodka yummy!!

-OG

NoRegrets said...

Oh, I would have suggested Kamikaze, but someone just did. I got sooo drunk on those at a high school function, but they were great.

I had a lychee martini (with gin I believe) which was wonderful.

How about a capirhina (sp?)?

OG, The Original Glamazon said...

A lychee martini? That sounds good!

I just looked up capirhina I'm all on that!! All on that!

sdg1844 said...

I'm a Vanilla Stoli and Ginger Ale girl myself.

I also like side cars. Dears, Triple Sec and a touch of lime. Deelish.

Smooth going down and I love ALL things vodka. It's as special to me as champagne.

Have a wonderful trip~

OG, The Original Glamazon said...

@sdg1844- Yes when I was introduced to vanilla vodka and ginger ale, I had just been gifted a whole bottle of stoli vanilla, YUMMY!!


Sidecar sounds good as well, adding it to my list!!

Hope your blogcay is going well!!
