Cocktail: a mixed drink that contains alcohol. And happiness.

Posted by M

Looking for a way to combine crafts and cookies? And maybe even a little Crème de Cacao (ever wonder when you actually USE crème de cacao? I know I did.)
Well if so, then have I got the craft for you!

Presenting: Making a cocktail glass!

Do you know how many hits come up when you search "cocktail glass" in ClipArt? 64. I find that hilarious and yet so wrong...

Okay, so we're not actually making glass. We lack the necessary glass-blowing skills. But it is amazing how easy it is to make a personalized cocktail glass with a short trip to your local dollar store. Ah, how I love the dollar store.

Things to buy:
  • One cocktail glass (didn't see that coming, did you?)-$1 each
  • Stick-on jewels - found in the craft section, there is TONS of choice-$1/sheet
  • Small beads and metal jewelry chord (if you want to be REALLY fancy)
 The beauty of this craft is how easy it is! Take the supplies home and decorate your glass to your heart's content! The more bling, the better! Be sure to add some pressure to each jewel, otherwise they will slip off when washed. Which would really suck, but at least you'll still have a functional glass and alcohol to drown your sorrows with...so totally win-win. Add some awesome friends to craft with, and you're golden!

Once you have a sweet, blinged-out glass, why not try out this amazing cocktail:

Cookies n'Cream Cocktail

 Blend ½ cup of ice in blender. Add 1 ounce of Vanilla Vodka, ¾ ounce of Crème de Cacao, 2 crushed oreo cookies, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Blend well. Top with more crushed oreos, this makes 1 cocktail. Bon appétit!
