Thirsty Thursday: Shut Your Pie Hole (aka Cherry Pie Cocktail)

Shut Your Pie Hole: A boozy concoction that tastes like cherry pie.

Shut Your Pie Hole (aka Cherry Pie) Cocktail

All it takes is a few cocktails and I lose the ability to filter my thoughts. I call it Loose Lip Syndrome. Squirrel calls it embarrassing. After about 3 cocktails, I turn in to my 2-year old niece in the cart at the Walmart pointing at the old lady in the moo-moo, shouting “Why is she wearing a shower curtain?”

It’s no longer cute when you’re in your 30’s.

You know what else isn’t cute in your 30’s… Hangovers. I used to be able to pop a few Advil and eat something greasy to relieve my hangover symptoms. That’s no longer the case. If I drink too much now (which I avoid at all costs), the bed and I become best friends the entire next day. I need whatever room I’m recovering in to be pitch dark, no one talk to me, and food is not an option.

Which is precisely why I now limit myself to 2 cocktails.

Shut Your Pie Hole (aka Cherry Pie) Cocktail

This cherry pie cocktail is aptly named Shut Your Pie Hole for all of those moments you wish you could take back the next day.

This fizzy cocktail is slightly sweet with a major kick of booze. I combined cherry-infused whiskey with good-quality amaretto, bourbon, and a splash of club soda.

    Such cute pics with the pie box! I only have one drink and sometimes that’s too much. I’m a lightweight … Always have been.

    i have that pie box! and i want those glasses badly; how adorable. I’m like you: 2 drink MAXIMUM versus the 2 drink minimum i used to be able to handle in my twenties…not so much anymore. I love the flavors in this, because pie. also, amaretto. That’s my 21 year old self talking, right there.

      It’s hard to refuse a cocktail that tastes like pie. Since this one is nice and boozy, it makes the 2 drink max rule a lot easier to abide by. Thanks for stopping by, Shannon!

      Thank you so much, Anna! I’m trying to squeeze in as many cherry-infused recipes as I can before the season bids us adieu.
