Punch, Drunk, Love- Corona, Fruit Punch Cocktail

Punch, Drunk .......what is it exactly?! 

When pondering the idea, one may have an image of an overtired young chico who is running around the house haphazardly ripping out toys and leaving them in tripping hazard trails behind him. Shrills of half-joy half-tears beaming  from this little chico echoes along the walls of the house. 


These irrational shrieks are coming from a place unknown to the overtired, unwilling to surrender sweet muchacho.  Until a knowing mother piers on and says to herself " he is punch drunk"!

She then makes her way to retire her weary little boy, lulling him into la la land...peace and quiet resounds the home once again.


Now me.....when I think of "punch drunk"....it brings me to a very different scene, una noche loca ( one crazy night) that I spent with( out of all the people with my very own ma-ma.)  This noche loca consisted of : a throng of eager woman, obnoxiously loud music, a stage and an extra fine group of respectable half-dressed men. 


Oh yeah, and multiple glasses of these fruity red drinks that tasted more like innocent cups of Kool-Aid than the mind-numbing, ogling enhancing, judgment altering libations that they were.



Now this Valentine's day whether your dealing with an overtired, irritated muchacho or experiencing what I now like to call " Magic Mike Moments" ending the night with a nice glass of "Punch, Drunk, Love will make it all go down a little easier!
