Easy Party Punch

A party or celebration isn’t complete to me without a good punch! I have been a lover of a good punch since I was a little girl.  Apple Juice and Sprite was my first mix as a child.  I just love a nice refreshing beverage!

I had the pleasure of sharing my easy party punch recipe on ABC 33/40 for Halloween and I had a blast! I hope you guys enjoy my easy punch recipe!

Chocolate Coffee Martini

Martinis have transformed so much since the 1920’s. When I found out about the recipe contest for Icebox Coffee the first thing that came to my mind was a coffee martini. Martinis are one of the most widely known modern cocktails today. I know martinis can be known as a girly drink but, I think the coffee gives the martini a great twist. I just love how it turned out and hope you do too! Add this yummy cocktail to your menu for your next event!
