Pitcher Sangria Recipe & Other Fun Things for Your Taco Tuesday
Planning a Taco Tuesday brouhaha? Why not pair some adult drinks to go along with the mischief? You’ll love these recipes for making both a pitcher sangria recipe and an adult summer punch!
These adult drink recipes are both passed on from Ladles & Linens. The adult summer punch recipe I rediscovered in a Timehop from the Ladles & Linens facebook page a few years back. While the pitcher sangria recipe was passed along by my adult son who currently works at Ladles & Linens in Roanoke. (The pitcher sangria recipe is FABULOUS!)

Drinking Games for Taco Tuesday and Beyond!
If you’re already having a drinks, you can extend your Taco Tuesday with a fun drinking game or two. I’ve been stocking up on adult games recently for future girls only nights. After browsing – and buying – I have to say I don’t think games like this existed twenty years ago.
I chose to buy several new games for their 21+ appeal and sense of humor. A few may be over the top if you’re more reserved than I am, but if your personality is wide open then you may have found your own next game haul.
Recent adult party games that I’ve purchase include Exploding Kittens: NSFW Edition, CoolCats & AssHats: A Card Game for a Funner Party, This one time, I..: The Game of Ludicrous Life Choices (Girls’ Night Edition), Laughcronyms Party Game for Adults, Cards Against Humanity and the more family friendly, 5 Second Rule.
It is important to note that I have not played all of these games yet – getting everyone’s schedules to match up is sometimes challenging. However, if you read the reviews for each game they’ll give you a pretty good idea of what you’re getting into – or don’t want to get into.
Anyhoo, happy Taco Tuesday everyone! I hope you enjoyed this little deviation from the usual soap and skin care recipes!
