Prosecco Slushie | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

There are a few key ways to tell that I’m not a real food blogger. I mean beyond the fact that only a handful of people actually visit my website. I don’t have a room full of antique dishes. I don’t arrange herbs with tweezers. I never chop up a thousand fruits just to spread them out in a mess on the table, take their picture, and then throw them away. There is nothing remotely glamorous about my house, clothes, makeup, or skincare routine. 

I also don’t get random boxes of free stuff randomly showing up on my doorstep on the reg. I pay for every dang thing. A couple years ago, it seemed like every real food blogger in the world was getting a free fancy ass blender. I do not have a fancy ass blender. I have a hand-me-down blender that was far from fancy before we even got it. It doesn’t make perfectly smooth soups in seconds. It barely makes milkshakes. But because I wish I was a real food blogger, I crushed some ice with it anyway.

We need to turn our glass of prosecco into a sno cone because it’s hot outside, and you work hard for your money. You for sure deserve a Prosecco Slushie because you’re a grown up. Sort of.

All you have to do is get out your blender, fancy ass or otherwise, and crush up as much ice as it will allow before you want to throw it out the window. Pour over some prosecco into the bottom of a glass, pack it with crushed ice, then top it with grenadine. You could also use blue curacao if you prefer a blue slushie. Or go two-tone because we’re crazy like that.

Look kids, we do the best we can with what we have. If what we have is a sad blender, we don’t let that get in our way. Make yourself a Prsecco Slushie. You’ll feel better. I promise.

Chocolate Candy Cane Cocktail | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

I love Christmas break. I have no obligations. I can stay home in my pajamas as much as I want. I can eat muffins and peanut butter toast any time I want. And I get so much of my own work done. Work that I love. Except dishes. I still hate dishes.

I think it’s high time I win the lottery and become a lady of leisure. This real job nonsense is for the birds. More 

I used my Christmas break epic free time to make you a cheeky little cocktail for your holiday festivities. This Chocolate Candy Cane Cocktail is sweet, chocolaty, and potent. We’re mixing up three spirits with some chocolate milk because we’re grown ups, but we still like to have fun. Creme de menthe is packing a pepperminty punch to bring the holiday spirit to your glass. It’s so good.

And I’m not saying you have to give yourself a candy cane stir stick, but I can’t really think of a good reason why you wouldn’t. Whipped cream and cocoa powder are also optional, but would it really be Christmas without it. 

Merry Christmas, friends. Get real merry with a Chocolate Candy Cane Cocktail in hand. It’s gonna be awesome.
