The holidays are almost upon us and that means we will be busy, busy, busy. So, at this time of the year, I really enjoy the moments when I can just enjoy a nice drink like this Red’s Orange White Russian that I am sharing and catch up on some of my favorite TV shows.

Catching Up On My Favorite Shows On Netflix

As many of you already know, we cut the cord a few months ago. That means that we got rid of satellite. We then decided to try out Netflix. At around $8 a month, it is really a steal. I especially love that you can watch your programming whenever you want, without the fear of accidentally cleaning our the entire DVR {yes, I have done that doh}! Plus, you can also watch your shows where you want, when you want. You can watch them on your ipad on the go, with your gaming device such as a Wii, or on your big screen in the living room. This is TV that really works with your lifestyle.

With Netflix, I have been able to catch up on old favorite programming like Wings and Law and Order: SVU and I have even watched the entire Private Practice series – something I never watched when it originally aired. It looked interested, but it overlapped with something else I watched or didn’t work with my schedule. I have also been able to see quality programming that you can only find on Netflix. And, with Thanksgiving coming up, I went through the new additions to Netflix last night and added some holiday programming to my cue like National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and some of the Charlie Brown classics. What fun these will be to watch during the holidays!


Orange Is The New Black

I am really digging the show “Orange Is The New Black”. Not just because it has a similar title as Cheap Is The New Classy *wink* but also because it has top notch actors that I like such as Taylor Schilling, Jason Biggs and Laura Prepon. I really loved Schilling in “Mercy” and hate that it was canceled. But now I get to see her in this new show about her adjustment from upper middle class to prison life. I watched the entire 1st season in one weekend and am impatiently awaiting the 2nd season’s release.

Another very cool character in Orange Is The New Black is Red {played by Kate Milgrew}. She went from being a member of the Russian mob to head chef in the prison kitchen. Trust me, she proves that is a position of power. Curtis Stone has partnered with Netflix to come up with a White Russian Recipe inspired by her character.

  1. While we watch Netflix all the time; I haven’t heard of Orange Is The New Black. Now I’m curious.

  2. Sounds tasty! I’ll be sure to ltry this one I’m done breastfeeding.

  3. I think my mom would LOVE this recipe. She likes White Russians.

  8. Wow this sounds SO good! I have got to try it!

  9. Oh my gosh…I love this show! Seriously, I just finished season 1 last night and I’m. Left speechless! I cannot believe Piper did what she did, but then again she lost it after all her issues! I cannot wait for season two!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      She did a lot of questionable and stupid things but for the jailhouse beating – I think if that chick was trying to kill me with a razor/shank thing and then trying to stab me with her whittled cross/sword thing, I would have delivered her a beat down, too, lol. You can only take so much. I am SO excited for the next season to hurry up and get here!

  10. I love kahlua. I’d like to try this recipe.

  11. Wish I had some time to catch up on all my favorite series. That Orange White Russian recipe looks delicious!

  12. That sounds so good! I could use one right about now!

  13. I LOVE this show! We started watching it one weekend, and finished the same weekend! love it!

  14. I loved Orange is the New Black! I can’t wait for the second season. Is it sad that I liked the side stories more than the main plot line?

  15. My family loves Netflix, especially with all of the Disney movies on it now. I haven’t watched Orange is the New Black.

  16. This sounds delicious. I love the touch of orange.

  17. Oh man, you are killing me. I could use a couple of those right now. Delicious!

  18. Orange Is The New Black is a new one to me. As is this tasty-sounding cocktail. I love the flavor of orange and will tuck this recipe away for a special occasion. thanks.

  19. Okay- Netflix and a cocktail? You have just won me over! There are no 2 better things in life!

  20. Love this show and love the drink even more…..yum

  21. I will be starting this series this weekend. Love a new Netflix series!

  22. I’m not a White Russian fan, but with the orange in it I would be MUCH more likely to drink one…or two 😉

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I don’t think I have ever had a plain White Russian, but my husband loves them. I think the Orange White Russian is more to my taste. 🙂

  23. I haven’t delved into the TV shows on Netflix yet. I usually choose a movie and I’ll watch one on each weekend night. I really love Netflix!

  24. Netflix is all we watch anymore!!! Love it!! We usually pick a series and then watch it every night!!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I just finished Private Practice and Orange Is The New Black. I need a new series. Got any good suggestions?

  25. i’d drink this. twice. only twice. in anight anyway

  26. I just found my new favorite adult drink! thank you. I am always running out of ideas when I have a mommy free night with my girlfriends.

  27. I have never heard of this beverage before – looks good! We love Netflix – my kids are watching it this very moment!

  28. I’ve never tried that before but I’m super curious how it tastes!

  29. Orange is the new Black is my all time Fav show! Can’t wait for the next season.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I am watching the 1st season for the 2nd time now. Gosh! I can’t find a set date on when the 2nd season comes out. Do you have any idea?

  30. I so need to try this and have it at work now!!!! Lol I can see myself all over the place but I would be happy. I will have to try this for the holidays.

  31. We don’t drink but it looks like you had a good night

  32. I want to come to your house!

  33. We love Netflix, we used them for years now and really enjoy the movies.. your drink looks delicious.. perfect for a Holiday weekend to hang out on the couch with the family…thanks for sharing

  34. A White Russian is one of my favorite cocktails, and this sounds like a delicious twist on it! I’m going to save it for when I have my Golden Globes party (because you know the show is going to be nominated!)

  35. ellen beck says:

    I used to love white russians but have never tried it with orange flavoring- not so sure about it! Great movie review though!

  36. Kim Allmon says:

    That sounds so good…could get me in a lot of trouble 😉 Love Netflix – we’ve been without cable for over 4 years now & don’t miss it much at all, especially the high cost of the monthly bill!

  37. Sherry Compton says:

    I like Netflix. We get our movies through there, and they offer lots of TV shows. It’s a great way to check out older episodes of your favorite shows or start a new one. I’ve never heard of Orange is the New Black, but the drink sounds great. 🙂

  38. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says:

    I’m afraid I too am unfamiliar with “Orange is the New Black” (I’ve been bugging my Honey/Hubby to get Netflix but instead he got us Indieflix ($1 a month – but they DO have some good ones that you have not and never will hear of…)

    But anyway – we DO like White Russians (though we probably only think to have them once, maybe twice a year…) and I must say this ORANGE variation does sound tempting / intriguing. And I think we might even have a 100 year old (: – ) Cointreau sitting around that I sometimes use to make “flaming” desserts… : – )

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I haven’t heard of Indieflix. Can you tell me a little more about that? I am intrigued.

  39. kelly Nicholson says:

    to quote slim pickens…shot! a man can have a real good time in Vegas with that stuff!

  40. Susan Broughton says:

    I am always looking for new recipes for cocktails. I am really picky when it comes to taste of cocktails, so that is why I am constantly looking for new recipes to try out. This one sound good so I pinned it to try later. Thanks
