Orange Punch Cocktail Drink

by Nellie

I like the occasional cocktail, there ain’t no shame in my mama game. Some days I feel on the verge of spontaneous combustion. Between work, keeping up with a gaggle of kids and making sure bills are paid, errands are run and everything in between, I’m maxed out by the end of the day. Today I’ve got a fun cocktail drink recipe that you will love and make again and again.

Honestly It’s just about all I can do just to make sure my family has a decent, nutritious meal for dinner before it’s time to tap out. Once dinner is served, bellies are full and everything is cleared away, it’s time to wine down. Sometimes you need a something a little stronger fits the bill.

 

Yeah, that wasn’t a typo. I said what I said and I said what I meant, mamas. Whether I’m wining down or am in the mood for another type of mama cocktail, by the end of the day sometimes I just need a drink or two to help decompress. Some folks like to argue and say alcohol is the devils drink but personally, in moderation I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. 

 
 

Enjoying a drink or two doesn’t make you a bad person, and in fact, sometimes a drink or two is needed from time to time to help maintain sanity. As a mama to three, I see the wisdom in the occasional cocktail.

 

Take my Orange Punch Cocktail for example. In a pinch when I’m experiencing frazzled nerves, this drink takes two minutes to make and is a serving size for one, which is perfect when you factor in the ratio of alcohol & fruit juices. Not enough to make you unable to function but just right if you’re looking for that whole body relaxation, mellow feeling.
