Snow Day 2 = Booze Day

It took everything I had not to title this post Snow Day 2: Electric Boogaloo, but I didn’t, because… I don’t know… maturity? Yeah, probably not.

So, Snow Day 1 was lovely. It was a nice little midweek vacation day surprise meant for reading and relaxing. Just enough snow to keep you inside, but nothing threatening. A perfect little break.

Snow Day 2, not quite so much fun. There’s ice and wind and more snow and officials telling you to “stay indoors.” Snow Day 2 kind of makes me want to pull my hair out. (And, yes, I know I’m a wuss. I understand many other places have real snow problems. Hence, my decision to not live in one of them.) Snow Day 2 calls for something a little stronger than cookies. For the occasion, I give you:

Snow Day Blueberry Booze

Just to clarify: I don’t really know anything about making drinks. I put these things together in a shaker and they tasted good, so I’m going with it.

drink components

The gang’s all here!


What you’ll need:

  • 1 oz. simple syrup (some drink-knowledgeable folks make their own, I just bought mine in a bottle at Kroger for $1.99)
  • 2 oz. blueberry wine
  • 1 oz. rum
  • sugar
  • ice
  • some sort of glass vessel to drink from

What you’ll do:

Combine the simple syrup, wine and rum in a shaker with ice. Slosh it around until it’s nice and cold. Wet the rim of your glass and dip it in the sugar. Strain your drink into the glass. Have a couple of these. Playing in the snow might actually sound fun now.

And if you’re feeling guilty about enjoying a cocktail, just remember my cartoon hero Linda Belcher’s wise words: “Mommy doesn’t get drunk, she just has fun.”
