The “Mrs. Hutch”

This past weekend, The Boyfriend and I celebrated our birthdays (and America’s birthday, too!) with a fabulous little shindig. And by “little,” I mean “300+ guests.”

The Boyfriend’s roommate’s family was in town, and his mother spent quite a bit of time in the kitchen while I was prepping the snacks for the party. Chances are, if you spend more than an hour in the kitchen with me, I’m either going to feed you or get you drunk (or both!).

And so…the Mrs. Hutch. A refreshing summer cocktail/punch for a sweet lady who doesn’t like beer.

The Recipe:
The “Mrs. Hutch”

juice of 5 oranges
2 tbsp lemon juice
2/3 c sugar
1 packet black cherry Kool-Aid
2/3 c raspberry vodka
7up (or Sprite, or other lemon-lime soda)

Do This

Pour orange juice, lemon juice, and raspberry vodka into a large pitcher. Stir in sugar and Kool-Aid until all powder has dissolved. Pour 7up into the mixture until the pitcher is full. Serve chilled or over ice, and enjoy responsibly!

Coming soon: more party foods. Cheesecake bites, bacon-wrapped dates with goat cheese and almonds, jello shot citrus fruits, and more!

    I think the “Brown Buddy” was my favorite. :)

    Unfortunately, there aren’t any photos of the Brown Buddy/The Neelam.

    In case anyone wants to recreate it…

    Fill a pitcher with:

    3/4 cup raspberry vodka
    1/2 cup vodka
    2 shots (2 1/2 oz) Triple Sec
    1 packet grape Kool-Aid
    1 packet cherry Kool-Aid
    2/3 cup sugar
    3 tbsp lemon juice
    3 shots (3 3/4 oz) Jagermeister
    7up to fill pitcher

    Stir until all powder is dissolved. Serve over ice, mixed at a 1:3 ratio with either 7up or Coke.

    So that’s what happened to all my kool-aid.
