I’ve hosted the occasional Mojito Friday here. Thanks to my Mom Friends, I’m going to serve some other interesting concoctions today.
The first Monday afternoon of summer break, I called three of my mom friends to come over — with kids — for Happy Hour. I served Mojitos and Doritos. (The kids partook only of popsicles. NOT laced with rum).
The next week, Rose invited us for a Tuesday Happy Hour. She served Geneves and stuffed mushrooms and a cheesy-artichoke hors-d’ouevre that cost me 43.5 hours on the elliptical.
The following Wednesday (is this starting to sound like The Hungry Caterpillar?), Jeannie hosted Happy Hour by serving Dark & Stormys and nachos.
And ever the ultimate hostess, Michelle closed the loop the fourth week by serving Sangria and about 8 types of appetizers, all fabulously yummy. Husbands, by now, were joining us. The better to drive us home.
So today I’m serving virtuals of all four. Below you’ll see the flavors in each. Then, you can vote by using this new gadget I found (located on my sidebar). Lurkers — even you! Please, loosen up and leave a comment saying what you chose and why.
Mojito: rum, mint, lime, club soda
Geneve: vodka, creme de menthe, creme de cacao
Dark & Stormy: dark rum, ginger beer*, lime
Sangria: red wine, limoncello, diced fruits
* As if I need another reason to love Target, I found out last night while school shopping that they carry ginger beer. Don’t ask why I was in the drink section when I was supposed to be buying pencil erasers.
If you want exact recipes, just email me at bestlightlori (at) gmail. Or google them yourself.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to a real happy hour with a very handsome man before we pick up our children from their playdate. Hmmmmm….what shall I have?
