Cheap Thrills - The Brilliant Booze Edition

Hello all! In honor of St. Patty's Day I wanted today's personal cheap thrills to reflect some of my favorite drinks and delights. And yes, I know that there is much more heritage and meaning to St. Patrick's Day than a bunch of boozers and leprechauns, but it's my bloggy, so there! Oh, and I love Lucky Charms!

Ha! But are a few of my favorite cheap thrills - adult beverages!

  • Champagne/sparkling wine/Prosecco - Yum, yum, YUM. I love this fizzy little wonder. Bonus points if some type of fruit makes its way in there for brunch.

  • Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc - This delicious wine hails from New Zealand and is fruity but not too sweet, crisp but not acidic. I could drink up the entire bottle.

  • Grey Goose & soda (with a lemon) - Simple, classic, delicious.

  • Knockout martini from Sullivan's Steakhouse (or Stoli Doli from Capital Grille) - The most tasty martini. It's Stoli vodka infused with chunks of pineapple with a hint of orange. The vodka steeps and out comes deliciousness into your martini glass. They don't call it a knockout for nothin' - it will indeed knock you OUT.

And onto today's Polyvore set of cheap little thrills to brighten your day, and your closet!

What's your favorite adult beverage?

Me lovey a great Ketel One dirty martini - straight up, no vermouth, 3 olives. That's how I do it.

I'm gonna try that sauvignon blanc!

And lastly, I'm running to F21 now to get that cheapy (very adorable) nude skirt - really $8.80????

Great post

Hi JM! - The skirt is actually $24.80...not sure what Polyvore did there. I love it for $24.80, too! It's from their Love21 line (the more adult line)...not every F21 carries it. Check before you head out! :)
