One perk of having funny and talented friends is that someday one of them will eventually write a book that will be PUBLISHED and be HILARIOUS and make you SO freaking jealous THRILLED for their success!
Janet Frongillo (pronounced Frahn-jello – like the shot) is has not only written one of the funniest mommy books EVAH, it is one that is the perfect gift for any good friend who has just had a baby and is overjoyed with love for her bundle of joy, yet overwhelmed from sleep deprivation and 10 months of no cocktails!
MOMMY MIXOLOGY – A Cocktail for Every Calamity says, “Do juice boxes come in Mojito? Motherhood is ‘memorable,’ but all too often for its calamities. Fortunately, Mommy Mixology shares stories, sympathies and some strong drinks to keep you laughing through it all.”
In this crazy funny cocktail book are Virgin drink recipes for after conception (“Watermelon Weigh-in”); but then the alcohol enters the picture when the mom isn’t breastfeeding and she needs an adult bevy: a “Colicky Cider” or a “Muffintopmommy Mudslide,” or a toddler tumbler of “Cosmopotty,” “Bloody Binky,” or a seasonal “Scary Santa.”
My favorite is a toss up between the “Penis Colada” for when boys will be boys or the “Kindergarten Cooler” where she invites you to mix the appropriate alcohol with 6 oz of fruit punch or 1 juice box! Hey-hey-hey it’s Kool-aid time!! (for adults only, please!)
All of these come with stories about being a mom and how exhausting and frustrating it can be at times. And sometimes after we get the kids down for bed, we can curl up on the couch with our mate, mix up a “Fundraiser Flop” and have a big laugh. Lord knows we all need a LOT of laughs while raising these munchkins!
