Impromptu Gathering

There is nothing worse than being [what my hubby calls] “The Hostess With the Mostess” with little to no notice of a gathering at your house!  This happens sadly with my husband’s friends and their wives.  One moment we are at home doing nothing and in one phone call several people will come over in less than 30 minutes.  This is why I keep certain staples in my house.  For example some type of soda mixer, Vodka [cause it’s my fav], and easy to make snacks.

This drink is easy and goes over well with most people.  I just put a shot of vodka in a glass with ice and add Cranberry Gingerale.  Of course if you have Cranberry juice or some other fruit mixer you can always improvise.  Then I add cranberries and lime as a garnish.  I didn’t have mint so I used Rosemary as a garnish.  This drink tastes good and is usually enjoyed by everyone.
My favorite easy snack recipe is my “Taco Dip
Sour Cream, Cream cheese, Lettuce, Onion, Shredded Cheese, Tomato, and Black Olives (if you have them).  Serve with Tortilla chips and enjoy!  This snack gets requests all the time!

I love these serving sets!
