Anyone else getting a little sir-crazy with this crazy cold weather? Because I know I certainly am! Other than running work-related errands every few days, I haven’t even left the house. Which has me craving a little social interaction! But with it being so cold, I don’t even want to leave my house in the first place. So what does that leave me with? A night in of course!
While running errands just the other day, I decided to plan a girls night in and figured I would pick up a few things while I was out. I ended up stopping by Wendy’s for lunch and ordered my usual – an Apple Pecan Chicken Salad and a Strawberry Passionfruit FruiTea Chiller – when it hit me. Instead of buying a ton of random stuff to make food and drinks, why don’t I just pick up food and drinks here and dress them up a bit? We all know I love to entertain, but I’m just about the laziest person when it comes to doing so. By picking up delicious food and beverages from Wendy’s and dolling them up a bit, I would save myself a ton of time getting everything ready.

So that’s exactly what I did! I absolutely LOVE their FruiTea Chillers, and immediately thought that their Honest ® Tropical Green Tea and subtle fruit flavors would go perfectly with some of my favorite Bacardi spirits. I’m not a fan of super-sweet drinks, and tend to pick something very citrus-y, so I thought Barardi Limon and Grey Goose Le Citron would be the perfect choices to mix with them. So I ran to my local store and picked up both the Bacardi and Grey Goose, then stopped by Wendy’s on my way back home for the drinks and food.
Let’s talk drinks first! Using the Strawberry Passionfruit FruiTea Chiller, I made two delicious drinks. For both you’ll need a medium Strawberry Passionfruit FruiTea Chiller (which you can only find at Wendy’s!), and 1.5 oz of Bacardi Limon rum.
For the martini: Combine ingredients in a shaker tin with ice, shake and strain into a martini glass, and garnish with a sliced strawberry. For this drink, I also made strawberry simple syrup to drizzle around the glass!
For the tall boy: Start by filling your glass with ice. Add in your Bacardi Limon, then top with the Strawberry Passionfruit FruiTea Chiller. Garnish with a lemon twist.
And voila! Two delicious (and incredibly easy!) drinks that are perfect for your girls night in!
Next we’re using the Mango Peach FruiTea Chiller. Just like the last recipe, you’ll need 1.5 oz of spirits, just this time of Grey Goose Le Citron, and a medium Mango Peach FruiTea Chiller (found exclusively at Wendy’s). In your tall boy glass filled with ice, add in your spirits, then top with the Mango Peach FruiTea Chiller. Garnish with small cubes of mango and there you go!
All three drink recipes are sweet without being SWEET, with just a hint of fruit, Honest ® Tropical Green Tea, and lemon. They’re super easy to make, and by using popular spirits like Bacardi and Grey Goose, you’ll be sure to please everyone!
Now for the food! Wendy’s 3 or 4 piece chicken tenders pair perfectly with the Mango Peach FruiTea Chiller, and the chili with the Strawberry Passionfruit FruiTea Chiller. Luckily for me, they both make the perfect party foods!
Using the chicken tenders, I made little hors d’oeuvres with mozzarella pearls and cubed fruit, then plated the chili with corn chips and crackers for perfect snacking!
So what do you think? Would you give it a try? Planning you own girls night in?
