Ok, you all know that we enjoy a good drink every now and then. And of course, we love delicious baked goods as well. So it's really nice to see that Safeway has stepped up to the plate this holiday season with some fun cocktail and dessert pairings, delicious recipes and most importantly, a bunch of ways for us to save money!
Now, I'm usually a 2-ingredient drink kind of guy. Give me a whiskey coke, a vodka orange juice and I'm good to go. But the holiday season is a special time and it's nice to have a special drink to go along with it. Enter Safeway. They have this awesome list of dessert and cocktail pairings that make me warm and fuzzy just looking at it! If these drinks and baked goods don't just scream HOLIDAYS I don't know what does! You can see more of these recipes on the Safeway Pinterest page as well.
We made a couple cocktails, one of which was a Pomegranate Rickey (recipe here), which was absolutely delicious! I have not found a lot of enjoyable ways to drink Gin, but this one passed the test with flying colors.
<----- Check out how tasty it looks too!
We also made one of the dessert/cocktail pairings that is on Safeway's website, called Tequila Frost Bites. Let me tell you, neither of these are things I would typically make, but boy am I glad I did! The drink was excellent. I'm a tequila guy, so it's not hard to mess up a drink once you put tequila in it. But it really was good. It went perfectly with the cookies too! They had substance and were not super super sweet. With the cocktail, it is a match made in heaven! Don't they look good? :)
We couldn't wait to tell you about the Beverage Calculator, so we mentioned it here a while back.
Basically, the beverage calculator will help you determine how much alcohol you should buy for a party. This is a nice thing, because when it comes to beverages for a party, you definitely don't want to have too little, but you also probably don't want to have too much.
We made a little video about this stuff and talked about some other current sales going on at Safeway right now too! So check that out below! :)
