Sounds like a delicious drink Velva. I don't think I'd look too good in the apron, but I'll stop by for a visit.

Kitchen Belleicious said...

Doesn't that look absolutely refreshing and delicious! Wow! The apron is adorable too. I just won an apron last week on a blog so I will bow out of this one but I love it all!

Claudia said...

So refreshing - I am partial to a cocktail with gin!

vinobaby said...

That looks perfect for a summer evening.

pilgrimscottage said...

Thanks for visiting and commenting! I'm not much of an alcohol person, but I have to admit, the cocktail looks good. Megan's apron is pretty. I will have to rush over to her site and check it out. Have a great day and stop by, again.

Dentists 90048 said...

Mmm - that drink sounds so refreshing for the Summer! And I love that apron.

Cathy at Wives with Knives said...

Your cocktail looks delish. I'm partial to white wine but have a feeling I would like this one. I wear aprons all the time. They have to have a pocket for my cell phone.

Sarah said...

Oh my gosh, I have all these ingredients and was wondering if there was a drink I could make! I will check out the aprons, too.

Catherine said...

Dear Velva, I just love, love, love those aprons!! I always wear an apron. I feel lost if I don't have one on. I guess it is because my mom always wore one and had me wear one as a little girl. Well, I did visit Megan and she is a lovely lady. We both have something in common. We both love the color pink! Well, Velva thank you for visiting. I always look forward to it. Blessings from your friend, Catherine xo

Rebecca from Chow and Chatter said...

I cannot wait for the day when I can taste any of these fabulous cocktails on your blog made by YOU. (Things just taste better when I don't have to make them myself...)

Elisabeth said...

Hi Velva-Love the aprons, heading over to Megan's blog to comment.
Wow! I can actually have the refreshing cocktail, now that I'm not taking medicine for my arm, I can enjoy that cocktail...just have to get some gin! Beautiful photo, as well!

Thanks so much for your kind concern re: my pinched nerve. It is getting much better now, after several days, and can actually start to raise my arm, with less pain!
