hostesses-with-moscow-mules

This is the cocktail that, Cay, the hostess of the gourmet group that I am now a member of, served for the December gathering at her gorgeous home. Co-host, Susie is on the left and Cay is on the right, as we toast ourselves for a job well-done. To be honest, this selfie was taken before the party began, but once we had cocktails in-hand, we knew it would be a success!

Yum! This sounds delicious! (No whiskey!)

Yes, I will admit to a bit of a whiskey kick, there for awhile. Back to the vodka!
