On Sunday, Father’s Day, we received our second challenge in the Young & Hungry Food Bloggers Challenge. We needed to make a video for a recipe inspired by a dad in our lives. I was a little late in getting mine up and entered for voting but that’s because I was on vacation with the two most important dads in my life, my father and my husband. We did a huge family vacation at my parent’s vacation house in Wisconsin Dells with my parents, siblings and our kids. It was nice having everyone together. My dad took all the guys out for drinks to celebrate Father’s Day and that is what gave me the idea for Challenge #2 and I am so happy with the inspiration because it lead me to create this Southern Comfort Cocktail.

On our way home from Wisconsin we stopped at a large strawberry farm and took the kids strawberry picking so I had a huge heap of fresh, sweet and tasty strawberries. I knew these would be perfect to add into my cocktail. I also wanted to make it a bit citrusy so that it gave you the feel of a nice cool refreshing drink on a hot day but with a kick to it. I decided to go with Southern Comfort as the alcohol to the cocktail because my husband is a whiskey fan but my dad drinks only when we all get together so he can be a bit of a light weight. Southern Comfort is perfect since it is a whiskey based liqueur. All in all I love the way it came out. The fruit and juices help to cut the whiskey flavor some but there is enough whiskey for the drink to pack a punch. I also like that you can make this drink by the pitcher to share with your family and friends at your next get together.

In “Young & Hungry,” two worlds collide when Josh (Jonathan Sadowski Sadowski), a wealthy young tech entrepreneur, meets Gabi (Emily Osment), a feisty young food blogger, looking to be his personal chef. Gabi is desperate for the job and must prove herself, mostly to Josh’s aide ( Rex Lee), who prefers a famous chef for the job. When Josh enlists Gabi to prepare a romantic meal for him and his girlfriend, the dinner goes awry and Gabi finds herself in a very awkward position. With the help of her best friend Sofia (Aimee Carrero) and Josh’s housekeeper (Kym Whitley), Gabi turns a difficult situation into an opportunity for employment and maybe even love.

Young & Hungry stars Emily Osment (Hannah Montana), Jonathan Sadowski ($#*!
