Cocktail Hour | Rio Edition

It’s Friday, which means one thing here at The Blogtini – Cocktail Hour!

During the last Olympics my husband and I hosted a “Beer Olympics” during the Opening Ceremony that ended up just being a group of people sitting around drinking and heckling the TV. This time around we’ve decided to be a little bit more organized about it – we’ve asked everyone to select a country to represent, we’ll be following along with Buzzfeed’s Olympic Opening Ceremony drinking game, and we’ve got a few other games (some solo, some that require alliances between countries) on tap. Because we’re grownups and super mature. We’ll also be setting up our projector and huge screen in the driveway and streaming the Opening Ceremony using our Amazon Fire Stick … the world is such a different place when you own your own home and are a full-fledged adult!

Moving on! To celebrate everything that’s great about today, here’s a gold medal worthy drink straight from Delish.com. And also, it’s tres classy.
