Linkup: Thirsty Thursday

Hello party peeps, happy THURSDAY to y'all!
Today I'm linking up my girl Jenn and Miss Trish for:

First up, my drink of choice for today. Since it's birthday month, I am keeping with the champagne theme!
There is NO SUCH THING as too much C H A M P A G N E!!!

White Peach & Cardamom Bellini

Society Sparkler
* ½ large white peach (roughly chopped)
* ½ ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
* 1½ tablespoons sugar
* 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
* Champagne
* Edible gold glitter stars

In a food processor add peach, lemon juice, sugar and cardamom. Blend until smooth. Rim each glass with lemon wedge and then dip into a plate of glitter stars. Next carefully add 2 tablespoons of mixture to each glass and top with champagne. Pour champagne in slowly as not to disturb the beautiful rim! Cheers!

DELICIOUS RIGHT!?!?!? I want one STAT!

Soooooooooooo I wasn't sure WHAT I wanted to write about for the first link up. I know Jenn said we could write about anything but then I got thinking about why I attend Happy Hours. The booze, the apps and of course the FRIENDS!!!

Girlfriends and drinks are one of my favorite past times and I LOVE catching up over CHEAP drinks. Just last night Jenn, Sportyspice and I went to a wine happy hour and had the best time. We were there for 3+ hours, gabbing, drinking and snacking and it was so much fun.

During the evening I looked at the table and just sat back and smiled. Friends make the world such an amazing place. So since we are talking Happy Hour and Friends I thought I'd list some of my MUSTS for friendship.

*A good friend drops everything when you need her*

*A good friend is always up for anything, but understands when you
have previous commitments*

*A good friends gets along with your family*

*A good friend knows when you need a drunk night or an ice cream night*

*A good friend LISTENS to the same story over and over and STILL has advice*

*A good friend NEVER pushes their beliefs/political opinions on you*

*A good friend accepts you for who you are, but helps you be your BEST*

*A good friend knows how/when to tell you to reign it in*

*A good friend supports you and loves you no matter what*

I just HAD to throw in the wine quote...I mean it is HAPPY HOUR ;)!

What are your friendship MUSTS?!?!?!


  1. OMG, Pinky, this is THE BEST POST! I love it!! And everything you listed there is SO true! So glad to have you as a buddy o' mine! Youre the bestest in the westest and the sweetest in the eastest! :)

  2. Haha I rarely drink, but I still go to Happy Hours with Will and friends. I order water and the bartenders always look at me funny! But like you said...the FRIENDS are the important part!

  3. LOL! I love this. it made me giggle a bit. esp the part about listening to the same story over and over again. I'm guilty of TELLING the same stories over and over again.
