Drink of the Day: Tainted Kool Aid

April 24, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

We have finally made it to Friday!  Hope everyone is getting their plans lined up for some fun activities with some family and friends.

Here’s one I introduced on here a couple years ago that will make a perfect intro into the weekend.  A sweet and nutty combination which, when all said and done, has a surprising resemblance to the flavor of kool aid.  I must mention that this is a very easy cocktail with a good quantity of booze in it, so you will want to hold yourself back from guzzling this down.

Hope your weekend is an epic one.  Cheers!
