I have been searching on the internet and I think I have found some that I am down to try! From down-home classics to ones my clever friends have concocted your taste buds will be sure to thank you. I hope you all try these too!

Disclaimer: Y’all know, but I am going to say it anyways like a good seed: 21 and older to consume alcoholic beverages in the USA.

1. Moscato Margaritas

Wine about it no longer because you can mix a margarita with wine now! Wow, what an invention! So if you are hankering with mixes two of these fabulous types of alcohol look no further! For this recipe, I have found ones for pineapple, mango, and raspberry margaritas! Spice it up with these different flavors.

Ingredients:

Pineapple margarita:

- 1 ½ c frozen pineapple

-2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice

- 2 oz. of silver tequila

- 1 oz. of triple sec

Raspberry Margarita:
- 1 ½ c of frozen raspberries

-2 oz. of freshly squeezed lime juice

- 2 oz of triple sec

Mango Margarita:

-1 1/2 c of frozen mango

- 2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice

- 2 oz. of silver tequila

- 1 oz. triple sec

Directions:

  • Add salt in a small dish. Rim margarita glasses with lime and dip in salt to coat the rim.
  • For the margaritas: For each margarita add frozen fruits, lime juice, tequila, and triple sec and blend until smooth.
  • Pour into glasses. Take the mini Moscato bottles and flip into drink.
  • Enjoy!


2. Dry Ice Cocktail: Summer Edition

Honestly, if you have not seen these on the internet I encourage you to open up another tab and search them up immediately. Very cool! (Pun intended). Dry ice is available at Walmart and groceries stores such as Costco. Plan out when you are going to make this drink with the dry ice because it has a very short shelf-life. This is because it is constantly changing from a solid to a gas. SCIENCE!


Ingredients:

  • Vodka
  • Pink liqueur
  • Lemonade
  • Pomegranate juice (Or any type of juice you prefer)
  • Dry ice

Directions:

Combine liquids then add the dry ice and watch the magic happen! It is completely safe to drink (or else it wouldn’t be on the list, I’m not trying to poison you) the drink with the dry ice in it but do not eat the actual cube please!

4. Rose Gummies

My cute favorite little bears in candy form and a bomb wine! What could be a better summer treat?!

  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries

Directions:

  • Heat wine in a microwave- safe container for 1 min or until hot
  • Mix sugar and gelatin into wine and stir with a whisk until dissolved.
  • Pour mixture into molds

Why take a trip to Hawaii when you can just taste in a drink? Yeah, I guess I still want to go Hawaii but hey this is a delicious drink.

4 Breakfast Spots Near The University of Kentucky That Will Actually Get You Out Of Bed In The Morning

These places will satisfy all of your breakfast cravings.

If you're a breakfast foodie like I am, you know that is an absolute priority to find the most popular breakfast spots despite the city you may be in. You don't want to visit the touristy and basic restaurants that everyone else goes to, but instead, you are determined to uncover the locations that are the best of the best. Most foodies will go to great lengths to discover these places. As a University of Kentucky student and major foodie, I have searched all over Lexington to find my favorite places to visit on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This took my entire first semester and many trips to the ATM, but today, I am now blessed to say that I am a regular at all 4 of these incredible breakfast spots.

1. The Great Bagel

The Great Bagel is one of my all-time favorite restaurants to visit on Sunday mornings. The restaurant offers a variety of bagel sandwiches and freshly squeezed orange juice, and it makes for the perfect early morning start to a day filled with homework or relaxation.

2. Chocolate Holler

Though not a true restaurant, Chocolate Holler is one of the most popular coffee shops near the University of Kentucky. Because it is only a 3-minute drive from campus, Chocolate Holler is always buzzing with UK students who come to socialize or study. The coffee shop is most well known for its chocolaty drinks and the music is great there, too!

3. Stir Krazy

Stir Krazy is a local smoothie bar down the street that serves protein shakes, smoothies, and tea. Though It only consists of these three beverages, the shakes at Stir Krazy are enough to fill you up for breakfast or lunch. Each shake or smoothies range from 200 to 250 calories and serves as the perfect energizer before a workout or a filling recovery drink after a workout.

4. La Madeleine

La Madeleine is a French breakfast and lunch cafe conveniently located on campus (and only a 30-second walk from my dorm). Their breakfast is served all day long and their croissants are to die for. I highly recommend building your own omelet for the most fulfilling experience. Not to mention, their iced caramel macchiatos are a great refresher on the side.

No matter which city, state, or country I am currently in, I make it my mission to eat as a local would. In Lexington, Kentucky, these four breakfast spots are guaranteed provide you with a plethora of different types of food to get you through even the worst cases of morning hunger. Though these places are my current favorites, I am now looking forward to containing the search for more breakfast restaurants, cafes, and juice bars throughout my next four years in this city.
