happy (birthday) hour for craig

today is craig’s birthday!  so, in honor of him, i decided to do a video of how to make his favorite mixed drink (which is going to be one of the signature drinks at our wedding in november).  so, here’s to craig!  happy birthday!  (drink up : )

captain & ginger (a.k.a. tall, dark & handsome…umm, i mean dark & stormy)

highball glass with ice
1 shot spiced rum
top it off with ginger ale
garnish with lime wedge

sip & smile.  it tastes like cream soda!

(oh, and be sure to check out my guest post over at buckhead betty!)

    Happy Birthday to Craig!!

  5. Ok, how cute are you! I love getting to hear what my favorite bloggers sound like in real life. It helps to get a feel for your personality even more in your posts! I agree with Jillian, I had a horrible Captain Morgan incident as a freshman in college and STILL can't drink it. I love ginger ale, however, so I may have to give this drink a try :)
    Happy birthday to Craig!
