Sparkly Holiday Dress + My Dad’s Famous Kamikazi Recipe

Nov 10, 2022

Let’s first have a moment for this holiday dress. It is under $50 and so good. The quality, the fit- all around such a great holiday dress. I love the green but it also comes in a really pretty purple that I think could be fun for NYE. I did a size medium and it fits perfectly. I have to mention it comes in a matching little girl’s dress that is just precious. Frances is in the size 10/12 and it is a touch big on her but I prefer big to small because she can wear it longer. This sequined dress is also a really fun option as well and this sequined camisole would look so good under a blazer! I ordered this sweater and skirt on presale as well for the holidays can’t wait til they arrive. Walmart has the cutest holiday finds and I just love their Scoop line.

Now let’s get to the recipe. My Dad is famous for these kamikaze shots he actually served them at my wedding as part of the toast in little monogrammed glasses. They have become a family tradition at parties and are always a hit! I make them for my Christmas party every year! They are only 3 simple ingredients and so good! They are best made ahead and stored in the freezer.

This can make as much or as little as you want but the proportions are always going to be 3 parts vodka, 2 parts Triple Sec and 1 part Rosy Lime Juice.

1 cup vodka

2/3 cup triple Sec

1/3 cup lime juice

If serving immediately pour into a shaker with ice and shake well until frothy. We prefer to make ours ahead and just measure and pour in a Yeti water bottle and pop in the freezer for a few hours. This makes them really nice and chilled! Enjoy!
