Valentines Day is right around the corner! Scratch that IT'S HERE! Getting ready for my prom party is going smoothly, if not a little all over the place (party planning is so #exhausting). Here are a few more additions to my list of party must haves of the recipe variety.
I've got a bottle of rum hanging out that I thinnnnnk is ready to be used. What says classic prom vibes better than some spiked punch? I found this awesome recipe care of sheknows.com:
3 strawberries plus 1 to garnish
3 slices of canned pineapple
2 ounces white rum
1/2 ounce pineapple juice from the can
1/4 ounces simple syrup
Place the strawberries and pineapples into the bottom of a cocktail shaker and muddle until combined.
Add a handful of ice to the shaker and then pour in the rum, pineapple juice and simple syrup.
Shake the mixture vigorously to combine and then pour into a tall cocktail glass.
Served garnished with a strawberry.
What better way to top off at punch bowl than with the help of a heart shaped ice cube tray? Swooon.
I am freaking out over how easy these mini cherry pies are! I can't say I'm the most ambitious baker, especially when dwelling into realms of the unknown baking world, but I think I want to try to make these puppies. Pie dough, sugar, cherries and ricotta cheese? DONE. Check out the brilliantly simple recipe here, care of cakestudent.com.
I've already got a prom dress, but if that weren't a case you'd better believe that this would be the one I'd be workin', care of twotart.
