BLD No. 8

Christmas cranberry highball anyone?

1 ½ oz rum
1 ½ oz pineapple juice
½ oz triple sec
3 oz cranberry juice
1 oz raspberry juice

Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain and pour into a highball glass. Just before drinking telling each person you are with why they are so important.

Beautiful pictures! I love the birdy on the teacup, as long as she doesn't add her own special flavor to the highball!! hehehe!

We just went in yesterday and talked to the Dr about the new meds mom will be on. Sounds like a really great treatment and we can't wait for her to start on it!!

Ces said...

I love the pictures, and the drink sounds delicious! I'll have three please!

The fireplace looks especially cozy to me today, since we had no power all day because of heavy snow and high winds. The power just went on again, and I wanted to stop by for a quick visit with my darling Renee.

Love you.

I guess even Barbie has to warm her toes. Plastic gets a bit chilly. She'd better not get TOO close! ;D

Love the photo and that little chickadee, so sweet!

I'll stick to my wine thanks ;P
