The weekend means party time.

Though in reality, there is no party going on over at my house. Instead it’s me stuffed under a pile of blankets, pushing fluids, and trying get some rest while I battle a cold/cough/icky sickness. Just my luck to get sick right at the beginning of the year, right? And this one has been a whopper. I figure I am getting my illness out of the way now and the rest of 2014 I will be healthy!  

Despite being sick, a mug of this punch puts a smile on my face. It’s that sweet indulgent type of punch that can only be best described as dessert in a glass. But it’s a boozy dessert so it’s grown up. Which makes it totally ok to drink more of. Right?
