Hosted a little get-together for a dear friend's birthday. Of course, we had to have something fun to drink...(kind of my favorite part of entertaining...) This particular drink is fun for spring, summer or winter holidays. In the spring, I serve it with limes floating, in the summer, with limes and cherries and in the winter, limes and cranberries...Very festive!
