Cocktail party

Last Monday my friend Rachael had a cocktail party for her sister Dani  who was in town for the week.  It was a great way for all of Rachael's friends to be able to see Dani. 

  Our friend Erica is a bartender and she is starting a little business where she will come to your cocktail party and teach people how to make drinks.  Her first official party was Rachael's last week!  It was such a fun night!  And I know she is going to have much success in her new business ❤️

Here is Erica in blue with my friend Monica. 

Erica had recipe cards for us with our drink recipes so we could make the drinks she taught us to make at home.  

She also had all of the shakers, stirrers and glasses that we needed to make our drinks.

Here are some of us with our first drink.  A margarita!


This was my favorite drink of the evening-the Bonaire

Bonaire recipe
Juice from one lime
Splash simple syrup (to your taste)
1.5 ounces vodka
2 splashes POM juice
Wedge of lime 
Fill glass shaker  with ice, put ingredients into glass shaker  in the order listed above and shake vigorously.  Pour entire contents of shaker into a short glass. Place lime wedge on edge of glass and enjoy!  

Here is a picture of the whole group.   It was a fun night!
