THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE WARM WEATHER, THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE WARM WEATHER:
After updating my supply list and making sure everything is ready to go, I turned my focus to warmer thoughts on this cold day. I love making fun drinks in the summer, alcohol or not, so here are just a few things I like to sample from time to time. I take ice trays and fill them with cranberry juice and orange juice for delicious little treats when plopped into a glass of vodka (add regular cubes and a few of the cranberry and orange juice, and not only does the drink look appetizing and festive, as the ice melts the delicious tastes come out). For those who enjoy dirty martinis, I make ice cubes of olive juice. Dropping springs of mint in regular cubes freezes to look lovely but also adds an extra YUM to a glass of water. So, while it's freezing outside I'm still coming up with cool ideas by the fire!
