The Best Booze-Infused Springtime Treats

Do you feel that strange feeling in the core of your soul? A lingering feeling of stagnation making you twitch a little every now and then? I’m pretty sure that what you’re going through is called stir craziness, a common diagnosis after a long winter indoors. Fortunately for all of us, it’s just about time to crack open the windows, throw on some sandals and our Anjé Modal Maxi Dresses, and get outside already! I might still be jumping the gun a little, but I’m too excited for the warm weather! It seems like it’s been an eternity since we’ve been able to chill outdoors and not worry about a snowstorm attacking us at any moment (totally not salty about the rough winter or anything...). With all of your frolicking out in the sun, you’re bound to run into the need for some sustenance... and what better way of getting that sustenance than with some alcoholic treats to munch on?

 1. Margherita Watermelon Slices
Very filling and pretty freaking delicious! This is the perfect snack to bring with you to a relaxing day at the beach, or a nice picnic in the park. They’re not too hard to make either! All you need is:
 
1 Small Seedless Watermelon
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1 cup tequila
1/2 cup Triple Sec
2 limes, halved or cut into wedges
Flaked sea salt or coarse

Once you have all of the ingredients, slice up that watermelon and get going on the margarita mix! In a small saucepan bring the sugar and water to a boil, stirring it until the sugar dissolves completely. Let it cool slightly then stir in the tequila and triple sec. Slowly pour the margarita syrup onto the watermelon slices, allowing it to soak in. Throw on the sea salt, then place the watermelon in the fridge for at least an hour. After that, it’s bon appétit!

2. Kahlua Brownies
Alright, as a self-proclaimed chocoholic, I’ve had many brownies in my time. My friends, I can tell you in complete conviction that the batch of Kahlua brownies I made, was the best one I’ve ever tasted. The consistency and flavor was just unreal. If you want to grace your taste buds with this intoxicatingly incredible recipe, listen up! The ingredients include:

 1 Box of brownie mix
1/3 cup of Kahlua
1 cup vegetable oil
1pt sour cream
Chocolate chips (go crazy with the amount)

 What I love about this recipe is that all you have to do is follow the directions on the back of any brownie mix box, and then just add in the Kahlua and sour cream. The baking time will be about an hour since the brownies are so dense and moist, but hey, it just builds up the suspense, right?

3. Alcohol Popsicles
Last, but not least, these refreshing treats are a springtime essential! There’s a lot of creativity that can go into these babies. All you need are popsicle molds and the possibilities are endless! They’re ideal for backyard get-togethers, a girls’ day lounging out in the sun, or just for a nice switch up from sipping your alcohol! Not to mention that they’re extremely photogenic (I can envision the Instagram post already 😉). If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out a few ideas!
