Groundhog Day Quote :: “That’s My Favorite Drink”

groundhog day drink

It’s one of those odd days, isn’t it? I mean.. It’s not really a holiday but there is all that tradition and superstition. I think 70% of North America is just grasping at anything to give them hope that winter is almost over.

There is a lot of history and folklore around the day, but it wasn’t until 1993 when the Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell film brought the term “Groundhog Day” into mainstream vernacular, meaning when something keeps happening again and again to the point of insanity.

If you’ve seen the film any number of times, you just might recall that Phil Connors (played by Bill Murray) is forced to drink sweet vermouth on the rocks with a twist. It is the favorite drink of his producer, (Andie MacDowell) who he is smitten with. And he can’t stand it.

So how’s your Thursday going? A little monotonous? Thirsty Thursday, is it?

Well…we’ve got your Groundhog Day Happy Hour covered!

Enjoy this free 5×7″ printable. Print it. Mix it. Drink it. Repeat. For ten years… Like Groundhog Day.

Holiday Gift Guide

Drink Sign SaleThis is so much fun!

As much I like to plan and prepare for all different holidays, I find myself CONSTANTLY falling behind schedule every time! Next thing I know, the occasion (a birthday, a wedding, or Christmas) arrives and I have not accomplished the ideas I had all laid out in my mind. Life just gets very busy.

With that in mind, I did some shopping for YOU this year.

I decided that whatever items I would focus on in my shop this season would be the kind that would simplify your life…because Lord knows, I need that in MY life. I think we can all use a little “shortcut” here and there.

nips-bakers-dozen

I visited the liquor store and gathered up a Baker’s Dozen of “Nips”as we in the Northeast call them. (Interestingly, I just learned that not everybody calls them that throughout the U.S.)

I chose fairly classic spirits and paired them with some super-simple-to-make cocktail recipes and created instant downloads of prints with Holiday Themed Drink Signs. These are easy, crowd-pleasing cocktails designed to keep it fun, festive and most of all… EASY!

I have designed, for you, naughtylistover a dozen 5″ x 7″ Printable Cocktail/”Mocktail” signs that you can download and print for party decorations or to include in a little gift basket for those tricky-to-buy for people on your list. Bundle them up with little mini-bar sized spirits, some candy, and other festive affordable garnishes.

What’s even better is you can print as many as you need from a single download. I then used very inexpensive acrylic 5″x7″ photo frames that can be found at stores like A.C. Moore or Walmart, and they make a really nice presentation.

This is a shortcut shopping list & Gift Guide for you:

Have a look and pair these ingredients and holiday signs with the people on your list who like rum, vodka, bourbon, etc. Creating a fun, beautiful little gift that has some holiday swagger, without breaking the bank is just a couple of clicks away!

And for the non-alcoholic alternatives, for family-friendly parties or gift giving, with some cookies or cocoa ingredients, check out these giftable sign ideas:

So cheers! Here’s wishing you a very merry holiday season, and hoping you can truly ENJOY it without too much hustle-bustle and exhaustion. I hope I’ve made something on your list a little easier!
