Cocknails: Candy Cane Martini and Winter Wonderland Nails

1 Posted by - December 12, 2013 - Christmas & Holiday, Food & Drink, Hair & Beauty, Videos

Look, I’m merry! Ok, well, I’m putting aside my humbuggery for long enough to make a festive cocktail and paint my nails all Christmassy (functional part of that word is “assy”). As always, I’m drinking, I’m babbling, I’m painting my nails, and my dog is barking her fool head off. Enjoy. (If you can’t see the video, click here!)

Here’s the candy cane martini!
And here’s how to easily and quickly make candy cane infused vodka!

The Pintester stars (heh) in a new episode of Cocknails, testing out a cocktail and a manicure of Christmas theme.

    And now you know why I suggested to include the recipes in the posts earlier. :p

      Fear not. I check my old links frequently, with the aid of a plugin. You will be able to find stuff.

    Ok, I think it’s hilarious that the ad that came on immediately after the video was an alert that your arrest record is online. That’s what happens when you drink and polish. BTDubbs, your hair is getting so long! Every time mine gets that length I chop it off back to chin level. Drives my husband crazy. “What? Why’d you do that? You know I love your hair long..” He’s not the one who has to mess with it every day. From now on I’ll just have long hair vicariously through you. Lock (of hair) on, Sista’!

    I’m glad that you finally questioned with me why a candy cane martini would have chocolate too.

    I was a “Social Sciences” major. I read somewhere that psychology and social sciences were the least well-paying undergraduate majors to have. So you’re doing fine. And the nails… they look like strawberries to me. Cute strawberries. I hate candy canes so I won’t be trying that particular drink.

    This may be my favorite Cocknails yet! Between the RHPS rant, the BA rant and the drunken mishap of pressing the wrong button, I was dying.

    Btw, I would just like to point out that typing “pinte” into my browser brought me her instead of Pinterest. I got here because I wanted a recipe for oatmeal scotchies.

    One of my favorite Cocknails ever. It’s snowing, bitches!

    So, I’m glad I waited til my dog was in the bedroom with my hubby cause between the doorbell and your dog loosing her mind, MINE would have lost her mind and it just would have been mass doggie chaos. Also, if I tried that mani, my fingers would have looked like I committed mass snowman murder. Just saying. =)

    Maybe you should rename that cocktail the peppermint patty or something. Chocolate + mint is good, but does not = candy cane cocktail. Weird.

    Don’t feel bad about missing the button. I can’t take a clear picture one handed stone cold sober. It’s like my hands have a severe phobia of cameras. They’re steady, and then boom, trembling like a leaf the moment they’re holding a camera.

    I smell a “BA in English: Blogging – It’s what we do” t-shirt idea… I’d totally buy that.

    Actually, I didn’t wanna comment on this one, because it’s already kinda old (I had to go one week without internet for an experiment I wrote about for a paper – it was horrible! I missed Pintester!) but… it was so funny! I literally laughed out loud – my roomate must think I’m a bit crazy.

    You have no idea how much I laughed at this. The English major (me too), the barking dog (me too), the oxymoron that wasn’t (I teach oxymorons)… love it all!
