Thirsty Thursday…ok, really Wednesday – but it counts…

Check this out, the cute little down home town of Carrollton, TX is now the proud recipient of Twisted Root Burger! Being the upstanding citizens of Carrollton – WareBear and I did our civic duty of checking it out on opening day.


I’ve already been a huge fan of Twisted Root Burger and their Watermelon Sweet Tea, but had no clue of the treat that I was in for last night at their newest location.



Introducing the Frozen Texas Sweet-Jito! You read that right, SWEET-JITO.

The recipe:

Of course, I stuck to my usual Bacon Bomb (3 thick slices of bacon and Blue Cheese) burger with grilled onions, tomato, and lettuce. I destroyed it, like the lady I am.

WareBear was all about the beers and couldn’t get enough of their wall o’ tap. IMG_6081I was a little impressed by it to, but couldn’t dare try myself with another drink.

I knew I needed to come home to blog, do more homework, and take care of a bit of work stuff. So I stuck with my Sweet-Jito. And boy let me tell you….let me tell you….

It was the Sweet-Jito that did me in. I have to realize that I’m getting too old to be drinking on a Wednesday night….ok, not really, but really I am getting too old to be doing this. My poor liver is begging me to stop, but I just can’t!

This sweet devilish concoction was made for a party in your mouth. All my inhibitions quickly started fading away and I suffered a few brain freezes trying to slurp the tasty drink out of the cup with two straws. In my defense, WareBear wanted a sip and the two straws just stayed in the cup.


Ice Ice Baby! No shame with those two straws.

Hopelessly Ever AfterHow appropriate was the timing since I am linking up this Thirsty Thursday with Kristin at Hopelessly Ever After, A Tale of Two Vodka Drinkers…..need I say anymore?!? It was meant to be!

So please try to mimic the drink, because I’ve got a blender and I’m not afraid to use it. I hope my people are ready to be enjoying a slip ‘n slide in my back yard with some lawn chairs, a kiddie pool, and a couple of sweet-jitos – because my life was changed last night!

So link up and share your favorite drink!

Oh and just a little milestone for Ware is the Vodka? Facebook Page – it reached 100 likes yesterday evening! WHOO HOOO! PARTY! You like me, you really really like me!

      If WareBear had it his way Helene – he would eat there every night. You’ll have to check out the Carrollton location, they have a wall of tap that is pretty impressive!
