Happy Hour Time

Well Howdy there first Friday of 2015! I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day! I think it is safe to say that 2014 went by in a flash, but I will say it was without a doubt better than 2013, and I have a feeling that 2015 will usher in many good thing, the number even sounds good. Here’s to the first weekend of a new year, a fresh slate to write on, and making many good memories with friends and family. Cheers!

“This year love what you see in the mirror, make time for creativity, never say no to adventure, eat more green food, send snail mail, send handwritten thank yous, buy less, choose well, give out too many compliments, travel, be kind to strangers, volunteer your time and skills, take a cooking class, give the present of presence, learn from others, embrace simplicity.”

Drink Special!
1 ounce sherry
1 ounce French vermouth
2 dashes angostura bitters
Ice cubes
