Every year around the holidays, my closest friends and myself all get together for a fun girls night in. It’s a nice relaxing night in the middle of a very stressful time of year when us girls take a night to simply focus on ourselves and having fun with each other. We have a simple grab gift, some yummy appetizers and sweets, along with a signature cocktail.
We take this time to unwind, laugh, and act silly while the forgetting about our endless shopping lists, decorating, and all our other holiday errands for the night.
Must Have Items for a Fun and Sparkling Holiday Girls Night:
1. Yummy Appetizers, We are all escaping our mommy and wifely duties to unwind. Having something delicious to refuel us is a must.
2. Small Grab Gift, Nothing that is going to add extra stress to the group, just something small to get everyone giggly and having fun. One year we did a silly socks theme, another was strange ornament themed.
3. Games, We want to unwind and what better way to unwind than with all your friends playing a round of twister or Jenga kid free!
4. A Signature Cocktail, No one has time to fully stock the bar and having one festive drink keeps things simple.
This year I was in charge of the signature cocktail and I chose to make an simple yet pretty Dirty Shirley cocktail, featuring DASANI Sparkling Water in Berry flavor. This was a great refreshing and yummy cocktail that we all enjoyed. All the girls were excited about using DASANI Sparkling water as our drink mixer, the holidays are overly indulgent as it is, finding a cocktail mixer that has Zero calories, is unsweetened, has zero artificial colors, and to top it off is caffeine-free is a great way to prepare a cocktail for girls night.
Dirty Shirley Cocktail Recipe:
2 cups of DASANI Sparkling Water in Berry Flavor
1/4 cup of Strawberry flavored Vodka
If you would like to rim the glasses, add the colorful sugar crystals to the glasses. Next fill a glass with ice, add DASANI Flavored Water, Strawberry Vodka, and grenadine. Then stir and add cherries.
That’s all, no in-depth prep work. Simple and quick so everyone can make their own cocktails all night.
