Get Your Sip On

Everyone doubts my skills as a mixologist because I am not the most eloquent when it comes to naming my drinks.

My crew laughed at the idea of Finger Juice, inspired my one of my favorite shows Jane The Virgin. 

Jane's grandmother believes you can't bring beauty back to a rose (your body, relationships, etc) once you've crushed it (lies, premarital sex, pick yo' sin)  with your hands. 

Enter my spin on the lesson, not only is the rose ruined, your finger juice aka hand sweat adds to the damage.

So here is the recipe inspired by episode 2 of DeeTales Finger Juice

Deidre's Finger Juice Cocktail
1 bottle of Simple syrup 
1 small package Black berries
1 bottle of Rose' (chilled) get it? Rose?
1 bottle of Blueberry vodka (chilled)


1.Take 1/2 cup of simple syrup and your blackberries and muddle

2. Pour bottle of Rosé' and blueberry vodka into pitcher 

3. Add berry/syrup mixture

4. Stir

You're done! Feel free to add more syrup to sweeten the drink. 

Serves 10 or 5 if your friends are lushes 






Dee-licious! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Oh and drink responsibly!

DeeTales Podcast Recap Queen To Bey

This week was all about the 2015 Met Gala. Now look. We know there are all kinds of horrors and injustices going on and people are in pain and poor and all the leaves are brown. Being excited about fashion and the spectacle of the Met Gala doesn't mean we aren't deep. It means we needed a break from the news. Some of y'all really tried it with that meme comparing the gala to the Hunger Games elite and Baltimore as District 13. Umm chill. If we go through some of y'all instagrams I bet we would find all kinds of selfies, vacations, bikini pics and new car flossing, pretty much you enjoying life and not giving a second thought to what's happening in the world in that moment. HAVE A SEAT! 


Ok back the fashion! 

...



And of course Beyonce shut it all the way down






No words. Just...none. The Coming To America realness had us singing...








Gronk twerked





And Deidre and Melynda swapped horror stories from when they worked with kids and Deidre promised to make Finger Juice the next time she sees Melynda.
