Southern Boy


I’ll be ready for one of these tonight after this long week. It’s a Southern Boy cocktail that I tried while on vacation in the Outer Banks. I had one at The Blue Point Bar & Grill on the Currituck Sound. Great restaurant with a cool vibe and amazing views. And the cocktail? Oh-so-tasty. Wish I could find the ingredients for this bad boy – I know it has bourbon (why else would I order it?), kind of like a julep, but not nearly as sweet.

The lawn in front of The Blue Point Bar & Grill on the Currituck Sound in the Outer Banks. If you ever visit, pull up a chair, order a Southern Boy cocktail and enjoy the sunset.

Tonight is date night – yay! The other day as I was getting dressed for work, I put on some strappy sandals and my daughter asked why I was wearing my “date shoes.” Gotta love it! So, tonight, I’ll definitely be sporting some date shoes and enjoying an evening out with my own Southern boy.

Everyone, I hope you have a fantabulous (yes, I declare that a word) weekend. What’s on your agenda? Hopefully some R&R with a bit of fun thrown in.

Cheers!

I have never tried bourbon, I suppose I must sample it to see what all the fuss is about!

If dating was what got on too the point of marriage, why would one expect the marriage to last if that activity is not continued?
Long live date night.
