A newish tradition is selecting an adult beverage to compliment holiday or celebratory meals. My sister did a wonderful job hosting, planning and preparing with our mother a fabulous Birthday dinner for me complete with strawberry margaritas.
I was able to watch her new margarita machine at work. How fancy! Ice is loaded into the top which is then crushed just so before dropping into the pitcher with mix and tequila. Press a button, wait, pour and sip!
For those who have met me, I am quite a light-weight when it comes to alcohol consumption. I limit myself to only 2 of my favorite cocktail, the Cosmopolitan, and even then I sometimes have a hang over.
For my Birthday dinner - 3, yes three, strawberry margaritas. My son was my designated driver.
Rounding out the festivities were a colorful bouquet from my favorite 9 and 11 year old nephews, tulip paper wrapped gifts and a golden gift bag. Love.
