This week, random.org handed me Mama Kat prompt number four: Pour me a drink. Share a favorite drink recipe! As much as I enjoy the thrill of meeting a writing prompt challenge, this one left me wanting a drink, not wanting to write about making one. (For fantastic cocktail recipes, I recommend Tomatoes on the Vine.) I tried random.org again and got Write a post in just eight lines. This I can do, and I am merging the drink prompt into the eight line prompt. Here goes.
For me, favorite drinks are inextricably linked to times, people, and places.
The vanilla milkshakes I craved when very pregnant during a hot Florida summer.
The tequila/beer/frozen limeade margaritas that threw me unceremoniously to a bathroom floor.
Glasses of wine enjoyed over pasta dinners with the best of friends.
Piña Coladas (Regular for Mom/Virgin for My Son) while vacationing in Marco Island, Florida.
Convenience store hot chocolate on cold mornings after a 5K or yoga.
Rum and cokes (single rum, tall glass) watching Super Bowls with my husband.
What is in the glass doesn’t matter as much as who I am with when it is consumed.
Wife of one, Mom of two, Friend of many.
