I just don't think my jeans can be stretched any further. I hear my body saying, 'No more Christmas cookies Ann. No more baked goodies of any kind, pretty please?' But come on! Did you see the Baklava that our friends made just for us? It would be insulting to pass that up! Well... ditch the jeans, grab the sweat pants - and a big slice of pie - and let's enjoy our Virtual Girls Night Out!
Time For Some Tunes!
"Animals of YouTube Sing Jingle Bells"
Time For A Cocktail!
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 1/2 cups packed mint leaves, plus 12 mint sprigs, for garnish
- 6 limes, cut into wedges
- 2 cups light rum
- Cracked ice
- 3 cups Champagne or sparkling wine
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and cook over high heat just until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool to room temperature. In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the mint leaves and lime wedges and muddle well with a wooden spoon. Add the rum and stir well. Strain the drink into another pitcher. Fill tall glasses with cracked ice and pour in the drink, filling them about two-thirds full. Top with Champagne, garnish with the mint sprigs and serve.
Seriously? I am in love!!
