Happy Hour: A Frosty Cocktail
Dec 23, 2010
Hopefully, by the time you read this, I will safely home in my own personal Winter Wonderland. While my hometown may not be a place that I want to live, it is certainly the only place that I want to visit. And when it’s covered in a blanket of shimmering snow it’s like magic, but I can imagine that being somewhere warm for the holidays might be nice too…
This gorgeous sparkly dress is the perfect piece to wear over your swimsuit and sandals at the resort, but I have something else in mind. I would layer this dress over a light grey or white slip, add a crystal encrusted belt and a pair of shimmery heels for the perfect New Year’s Eve look. It might be a little chilly for D.C., but I know some of you ladies were lucky enough to sneak away somewhere warm.
If you did manage to whisk away to somewhere warm and sunny for the holidays, then you’re going to need an icy cocktail to keep you company. This frosty grape sparkler should be perfectly refreshing.
4 cup(s) seedless red grapes, plus more for garnish
2 tablespoon(s) lemon juice
2 tablespoon(s) honey
2 cup(s) seltzer
6 ounce(s) (3/4 cup) vodka
Puree grapes in a blender. Pour the puree through a fine-mesh strainer set over a medium bowl or large measuring cup. Press on the solids to extract all the juice.
Add lemon and honey to the juice; stir until the honey is dissolved. Add seltzer and vodka.
Divide among 4 ice-filled glasses. Garnish with whole grapes.
