Why are my posts all about Georgia today? I’ll tell you! I’m taking my first trip to Georgia that does NOT involve a Virginia Tech football game this weekend. Atlanta was fun, but I’m moving on - to Savannah!
I literally could not be more excited. Since this weekend, I would say Savannah has been on my mind at least 60% of the time, and I’ve even had dreams about it when I sleep! The more I explore the rich history of Savannah the more I fall in love with it. It’s an adorable city right on the river and not far from the coast of Georgia. This city is rich in history, art, good old Southern charm, and Paula Deen! (Although I’ve heard her restaurant is not nearly as good as you would think!) I am so excited to walk around Broughton Street, view the parks, and eat at The Olde Pink House on Abercorn Street!
Apparently it’s an amazing restaurant. I JUST tried to make reservations for Friday at 7 pm (it’s Monday), and the only time’s they had available that was actually around dinner time was 8:30 pm! I know I’m from a small town, it doesn’t even have an Olive Garden, but I can’t believe you had to make reservations THIS early and I’m so relieved I didn’t wait any longer!
Anyways, the reason I’m going Georgia crazy is because I was offered an interview at South University School of Pharmacy! Score! It’s on Friday and I could not be more excited! The school is located in Savannah and is an accelerated program (aka I’m done in 3 years instead of 4!). I’m super excited for that interview and my interview at ETSU this weekend and I hope they both go well! Thanks for putting up with all my Georgia excitedness!
Question: Have you ever wished someone on fb a "Happy Birthday!" when you reallllllly want to say "I never would have known or wished you Happy Birthday if it was not for the birthday updates on my home page, but I want to be nice."
Stir together 8 ounces (1 cup) cranberry juice cocktail, 8 ounces (1 cup) vodka, 4 ounces (½ cup) ginger ale, and 2 ounces (¼ cup) fresh lime juice in a large pitcher. Pour into ice-filled glasses, and garnish with lime wedges. Makes 4 servings.
CL: What kind of barware should everyone have? Is it okay to substitute glasses?
CM: There are some barware basics, but my motto is to use what you have. Mixing glasses adds eclectic flair and gives you a chance to inject your personality into the party. A few glasses you should consider having are Champagne flutes; highball, martini, and rocks glasses; and wine goblets. Other accessories and good bar basics: cocktail shaker with strainer, stirrers, picks, blender, and fun coasters.
