Ground Hog Day Cocktail Recipe


The Perfect Ground Hog Day Cocktail Recipe.

This weekend is Ground Hog Day and while we love the sun here at the Party Bluprints Blog, we are hoping for a cloudy day.  If you forgot why then read the poem below for a refresher and say cheers to an early spring with this “Dark and Stormy” cocktail recipe.  It’s a classic and we hope you find the rum and ginger combo a tasty treat.  If you love the cold and want more winter then head on over to our Tequila Sunrise Cocktail recipe

There’s only the day the whole long year,
That I hope and pray the sun won’t appear.
The second of February, you all know,
The groundhog goes searching for his shadow.
If he should find it, the story is told,
We’ll have six more weeks of winter’s cold.
But if it is cloudy, his shadow’s not there,
There’ll soon be warm weather and days will be fair.
So please, Mr. Sun, for just this one day.
Find a big dark cloud – and stay away!
