This particular cocktail was tested by some Girls of a Feather… and passed. We decided that not only is the color absolutely lovely, but it’s the perfect sipping drink with chatty friends. It just feels special. I’m pretty sure it was the chatty friends that made it special. As it should be.
This drink originally came from a Food & Wine recipe. We all agreed that we’d like to try it next time with sugar on the rim. Would that make it a Sugar Dog?
Cheers to Friday and chatty Girls of a Feather!
