The Perfect Cocktail is quite simply a tasty cocktail that contains a perfectly matched combination of different liquors and other items.
It doesn’t matter if your child is 2 or 12, tantrums come in all shapes and forms.
However, as a mom, these tantrums can make our skin boil and easily bring us to our breaking point. This is why you need to find the perfect cocktail for each of your child’s tantrums:
Irish Coffee Cocktail
The Irish Coffee Cocktail is the perfect cocktail for the 2am tantrum. You know the screaming that doesn’t stop until the sun comes up. Sometimes, it consists of jumping wildly on the bed, giggling then falling into tears at the mention of going to bed. It’s that tantrum where the moment you start to fall asleep, your child becomes this evil demon from hell that refuses to let you sleep. Let’s face it; no matter what your child does at 2am, it is going to require some coffee and a little alcohol to keep you from having a meltdown yourself. So, when your child is having a fit at 2am, get out the Irish Coffee and make a day of it.
The whining. The begging. The complaining. The crying. This is just a part of everyday like the movie “Groundhog’s Day.” Day after day, you wake up to deal with the same tantrum, the same whines, and a day that you think you will never get over again. Well, instead of living the same day over and over again, make yourself a margarita. Go sit at your patio table, open the umbrella, and sip a nice cold Margarita while letting your child throw a fit in the backyard. Today, the neighbors get to deal with it; not you!
Some days, you have to get through the day like superman. Everyday is a fight, but some days you have to literally save your kids life over and over.
The Superman Cocktail is what you need to grab when your child decides to terrorize the grocery store and you save him from the tumbling shelf, or the day your child decides banging his head into the concrete wall is a great way to throw a tantrum. Mom, you have superpowers, so drink like it.
Raspberry Strawberry Blended Mimosa
I just love mimosas. They are the perfect addition to any morning routine.
However, I especially love the Raspberry Strawberry Blended Mimosa on days when the tantrums start early. You know the days where you wake up and 2 minutes later the tantrums ensue. There is a tantrum over breakfast, the brown on the banana, the toast is too brown, and the butter is too melted. Sometimes, the morning just calls for a mimosa.
Cupid’s Kiss with Alize
As a mom, there are some days that you literally think your child hates you. And, if they don’t hate you, you are almost positive you hate them. Cupid’s Kiss is for the door slamming days when your child spits out, “I hate you” as they slam the door to their bedroom shut.
Although these tantrums tend to happen in the tween and teen ages, they can happen as early as 2. Instead of breaking down the door, take a break and make yourself a Cupid’s Kiss. It’s sure to shoot a little love in your direction.
Did you know there was a drink specifically for tantrums. This is your last resort. The point of no return. When you just can’t take one more meltdown. When your child has literally embarrassed you to the point of utter exhaustion, it is time to break out the tantrum tonic. With the perfect mix of Vodka and rum, the Tantrum tonic takes you away from it all.
