Yes, H is for Happy Hour in London – which, according to the chart in my second photo, appears to be 24/7. Indeed, as I tap the keyboard for this particular A to Z entry, I see that I should be imbibing a “Fancy Smile.”
What is the proper cocktail for you at this moment?
I’m not much of a drinker, but I am a sucker for festive, foo-foo beverages. Gimme a tissue paper parasol, a skewer of fruit, or a plastic monkey hanging off my glass, and I’m happy. As a former coffeehouse owner and recovering barista, I had to order the espresso martini which you see above. It did not disappoint!
Gin and tonics also have a special place in my heart because my dad makes a wicked one. It’s become a ritual when I visit my parents to sit out on their deck, sip one of dad’s G&T’s, and chit-chat while the sun sets. Bliss! Unlike the gin and tonic pictured here, Dad puts limes in his. With Hendrick’s Gin, however, a cucumber slice is the traditional additive. As odd as it sounds, it really works. Tasty!
Y’know, I just realized that I could have used “H is for Happy Anniversary” since my husband and I celebrate 3 years of marriage on April 9th. Whee! We were married at a Scarborough Renaissance Festival over in Waxahachie, Texas. I dressed as a purple fairy as you can see in the post My Big Fat Ren Fair Wedding.
I also could have gone with H is for Hemingway Cats because the story behind them is so interesting, and Key West is literally crawling with them… but I didn’t! Ha!
Follow me on Instagram & I’ll follow you back!
I’ve gone from turning up my nose at the idea of cell phone pictures, to being an avid iPhone photographer, which is why my theme for the 2014 A to Z blog challenge is Instagram Travel Photos. If you are on Instagram, I’d be delighted to follow you. Simply follow my photo feed (@TuiSnider) on Instagram and I’ll follow you back!
What is the April A to Z Blog Challenge?
Each April, people from all over the world participate in the April A to Z blog challenge, and you can too. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a great way to meet other bloggers. To play along, all you do is make a blog post for each letter of the alphabet during April, then use the blog hop linky to visit as many other bloggers as you can.
My A to Z Inspired Book: Unexpected Texas
I’d like to thank everyone who commented on my blog during the A to Z Challenge last year, because it convinced me to take the self-publishing plunge. On March 2, 2014, I released Unexpected Texas as a paperback and eBook and it quickly became an Amazon Best Seller!
