**This is a guest post written by Laura @ The Suzie Lou Blog**

Greetings Everyone! My name is Laura and I blog over at The Suzie Lou Blog! Which is dedicated to the many creations and quarks in my journey in life, love, food, friends, family, and most importantly God! When I am not working on my blog I can be found living my dream as an actress on the stage of my local community theatre or in a local coffee hangout planning my next greatest adventure. Grab a cup of joe and come along for the ride!

Today I am so thrilled to be guest posting here at The Samantha Life! We have both jumped on the Orange is the New Black bandwagon and we both love our fun cocktails. So what better way to merge the two together than to have a fabulous themed cocktail!




One of my favorite ways to relax after a hard day is with some Netflix and a yummy beverage! My new current favorite Netflix binge is Orange is the New Black. In honor of their 12 emmy nominations, including my favorite character, Red, played by the amazing Kate Mulgrew. I decided to create a twist on a traditional Moscow Mule. I am calling it Red's Moscow Mule! Here is what you need:

Ingredients
Vodka- 1 to 1 and 1/2 shots
Ginger Ale
Orange Crush Flavor Powder
Ice
Fun glass to drink from

Instructions
(I find that this drink comes together if you create it all while speaking in your best Russian accent)

Start by adding lots of ice to you glass of choice.

For those of you who don't like orange: never fear, you can still have a Red themed drink. Just use the Strawberry Crush flavoring instead. Your drink will just match Red's fierce Magenta locks.

And there ya go! I hope you enjoy this drink as much as I had creating it. Happy Netflix binging to you all! Thanks again Samantha for allowing me to guest post!

Nostrovia! (Cheers!)
