The Bar Is Open

Tonight's drink is creamy and smooth. It's almost like a shake, but with the kick of alcohol.

Creamy Raspberry Grenade

  • 2 ounces Irish Cream

  • 1/2 raspberry liqueur

  • dash of grenadine

Mix ingredients in an ice filled cocktail shaker. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass.

Enjoy your Creamy Raspberry Grenades responsibly, please. Happy Friday, everyone!

*Please forgive the quality of my photo. I can't seem to get my camera to focus on the foreground instead of the background. If you have any ideas how I can fix this, please leave them in my comment section. Thanks!

I am camera challenged sorry, these sound perfect! The glasses are too cute :)

1. The photo looks fine to me.
2. It happened to my hubby too. There is a button to press on the camera for focus (distance or up close). I think that' the button to use. When hubby wakes up, I'll ask him.
Love those glasses!

Your camera might have a macro setting. Mine does (not that I can find the actual camera anywhere...) the icon is a tulip. Check that out, it should work.

I'll take two Grenades in the garden please!

Thanks for the camera tips, everyone. I'm going to try them.

Lissaloo and Purple Flowers, thanks, I like the glasses too!

5th, they are tasty!

Donna, if you like Irish Cream, you'll probably love these. So good!

Abby, I do have a tulip icon. I'll have to see if I can figure out how to change the setting and find out if it makes a difference.

I'd love to have you stop by for drinks in the garden!

It's nearly 1:30 p.m. and I have to pick my daughter up from school at 2. Darn. Definitely too early to whip one of these up, but definitely gotta try one later. Mmmm....
