Lady Diana...And You Thought I was Talking About the Princess

Happy New Year's Eve to all! What a better way to celebrate the new year than with a traditional glass of bubbly...with a twist. Princess Diana's favorite drink was a glass of champagne with a strawberry or two dropped inside. Since it was her fave, they (the booze powers that be) decided to name this simple drink the Lady Diana. What's kinda messed up though is what they decided to name another version of this drink. You can also "muddle" the strawberry or smash it up in the glass then pour the champagne in. This is called the Bloody Diana. The name sucks but it sounds delicious! However, in honor of 2010, let's all grab a champagne flute, pour some Veuve Clicquot, White Star or whatever sparkling wine is your favorite and drop a fresh, plump strawberry in it and drink to a healthy, happy and fabulous New Year!

The Pointsettia...and You Thought I Was Talking About The Flower

I feel like I've been away forever but now I'm back! Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I've been hosting parties at my house all week and I am dead tired. Now, it's time for a cocktail... Grab yourself a champagne glass or a flute, a chilled bottle of champagne or any other sparkling wine, just as long as it's not dry or extra dry . Now go into the fridge and grab the kid's cranberry juice. Pour equal parts booze and juice into the flute and Voila!....The Pointsettia!

I spent my Sunday evening at this historic landmark in Riverside, CA
This magical place is like a european castle in the middle of nowhere Every year at this time they have the Festival of Lights. We brought Grandma with us this yearI stayed here overnight for my birthday a couple of years ago. See the top floor windows? The one on the right was our room. Pretty lit walkway They even decorate the balconies

Lights everywhere!
Even on the palm trees...very cool
Even cooler... This is where we had dinner. I love this pic.
Carriage rides for the Cinderella in you

Tipsy The Sideways Snowman...

Tipsy stopped by my house(uninvited) a few days ago. He immediately made his way over to the Holiday Cheer (bar) area of my house. He mixed up a few of his seasonal favorites and I must say, Tipsy is quite the Mixologist. Tipsy and I had a grand old time. It was getting late and the heater was on and Tipsy started to stain the rug so he bid me farewell. He left me with some drink recipes that are sure to put the Fa back in your La, jingle your bells (all the way) and Deck your Halls or those of your uninvited guests. So check back this week for some of Tipsy's Holiday Classics and spread some Christmas cheer of your own!

Warning us to Be Good while he spreads "Holiday Cheer" along the way.
