Holiday Spiked Punch Recipe!

FYI, it's #ThurstyThursday! As I am off running like a mad woman today on my day off to finish all Christmas shopping, I thought it would be the perfect day to share one of my favorite punch recipes. Of course since today is Thursty Thursday, this one is spiked with a little bit of goodness. The original recipe I found on pinterest had zero alcohol content, but being some would like the option of alcohol all you would need to do is add in the alcohol of your choice. I would recommend some vanilla flavored vodka, because I feel it would pair well with the lime flavoring! Still interested? Well here it is!

Looks mighty festive right? Well this is one I think the kids would enjoy, minus the alcohol of course! This recipe calls for: 1 can of Pineapple juice, 2 packs of Lemon Lime Kool Aid, 2 cups of sugar, 2 quarts of water and some ginger ale, plus the optional alcohol to make this a grow up drink. 

All you need to do is mix it all together minus the ginger ale and optional alcohol and freeze until it is frozen. Then With your hefty blender, just blend it up adding in some ginger ale and optional alcohol until it is like a slushy. 

Finally garnish with something festive like a candy cane and serve. For those of you living in the South where it is going to be a toasty Christmas, this may be a great choice over hot drinks. Just image how much fun it will be drinking a green slushy!

Christmas is in the Air: Christmas Makeup Tutorial!

Well this has been fun folks, but today's post wraps up the Christmas is in the Air series I am hosting with Christine from Life with a side of Coffee. Hopefully we can bring this back next year, because I know we both have enjoyed this for two years now! Today may be my favorite of all the weeks due to I can talk about beauty. Well I just so happen to have something special for all of you today. Recently I got into YouTube and am showing you all how I create makeup looks. If you have not already, please subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos! 

Week 4 - December 17th: Christmas Beauty or Fashion. Share makeup and fashion that you will be wearing for Christmas.

I personally love challenging myself to use shadows that may seem scary to some. I set out to use colors in the red family and gold family to really get a very festive look. I personally loved this look and have worn this combination for a long time. I get so many requests to film this that I decided to do this one next. I would love to know your thoughts and if you own these colors I recommend that you try to recreate this look for the holidays. I find it not only looks festive, but also looks pretty glamorous in person! Just watch the video on Youtube to see all the product used to create this look!

And now for the rules:
1. Follow Life With A Side Of Coffee and Southern Beauty Guide
2. Write a post that goes along with the theme of the week and link up with us.
3. Visit a few other linked up posts and comment on their posts. Share the love people!
4. Make a new friend. That's the best part of these anyway. This is more of a perk than a rule :)


Make sure you check out everyone's posts and link up! I would love to see your favorites! Also comment below with your favorites or which of mine you are interested in trying!
