Have a happy, have a happy....

have a hap hap happy new year!


Never been much of a New Year's Eve girl - too much pressure to "let's have fun!!!!" Tonight we are chillin at home with the kids, having yummy snacks and drinks, lobster for dinner, cheesecake for dessert, and a lot of wii after dinner. My perfect New Year's Eve!!



Speaking of drinks :) Here's the kid's idea of perfection





and here's mine!





On the menu tonight are Marco Polo Martinis. Put equal parts of vanilla vodka, liquor 43 (no clue, just do it) and pineapple juice in an ice filled shaker, strain, serve and enjoy!



HAPPY 2009 TO ALL AND CHEERS FOR AN AWESOME YEAR AHEAD FOR EVERYONE! xo, Brie


ETA: The day after report - the martinis were deeelicious! So delicious I had 2 and might have been talked into a 3rd but had to stay serious for the wii tourney (I lost) An addition I plan to incorporate next time is a nice lemon sugar rimmer from the company Stirrings.

Your New Year's Eve sounded perfect!

Vanilla vodka is really good in ginger ale too! (For you, not the kids!)
