Holiday Drinkie Poo

Hello Stamplings!

How are you? I hope you are all safe and sound and not impacted by the hurricanes and their aftermath. 🙏

I've got a QACAS card for you. I'm working on preparing birthday cards for family and friends through to the end of the year (so I can concentrate solely on making Christmas cards), but then I got detracted by some challenges and made this:
This cute martini and recipe are from Your Next Stamp's "Mini Holiday Martini" set. I heat-embossed the image in white, Ziggied in red, and then Hammy added gloss to the drink and Santa hat. You'll have to trust me on that. To finish I smudged a white border all around.


Cranberry Margarita (from Gimme Some Oven)

  • 1 1/2 cups
     cranberry juice
  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup orange-flavored liqueur
  • ice cubes
  1. Stir all ingredients together until blended.  Serve over ice in either sugar-rimmed or salt-rimmed glasses, garnished with fresh cranberries and lime wedges if desired.

And if you don't have all those things, a good ol' cranberry juice and wodka on the rocks is very refreshing. Good for Thanksgiving, too! Or for no reason!


Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse, being a follower, and leaving me some love!
