I invented a new beverage. The official name of this beverage has not yet been determined, but the working title is When Mommy's Happy. Those of you who are underage, please click away.
Here's the recipe:
1 oz Cointreau
2 oz vodka
7-Up or Diet 7-Up
Fill a highball glass with ice. Cut lime in half, and squeeze both halves into the glass. Add Cointreau and vodka. Fill with 7-Up. Stir. Enjoy responsibly.
I googled these ingredients, and did not find an existing similar drink, so I'm taking full credit for the recipe. Technically, this is actually two servings of alcohol, so behave accordingly. Mix it, and share it with a friend. Another option is to cut the alcohol in half, and mix the drink in a smaller glass.
I almost feel virtuous when I drink When Mommy's Happy, because it has an entire lime in it. It's sweet, but not too sweet, because of all the lime.
Let me know what you think.
