I just love it when the UPS man comes to my door! Earlier this week he brought the wine glasses CSN stores sent for me to review. They are beautiful red wine glasses, and they arrived carefully packed. They are light and appear delicate compared to the thick-stemmed glasses I have been using recently, but they came through the dishwasher nicely. I love the shape of the bowl and they are comfortable to hold. I wasn’t really in a red wine mood, so the rosy pink adult beverage you see in the glass is an Oaks Lily in honor of the Kentucky Oaks, a horse race for three-year-old fillies held every year on the Friday before the Kentucky Derby. So here’s the recipe as a little”sneak peek” into Blog Derby Party 2010, which kicks off April 17.
1 oz. vodka
1 oz. sweet and sour mix
3 oz. cranberry juice
splash triple sec
You’re supposed to serve it over crushed ice, but I prefer ice cubes – I’m just weird that way.
