A surprise going away party for Dave of My Year on the Grill!

28 Feb

Cheers and Good Luck, Dave! I’m toasting you with a simple cold and relaxing Vodka and White Grapefruit drink with frozen fruit thrown in to keep it nice and cold, with a twist and a slice of pink grapefruit! I love drinking this in the summer while sitting on the porch! I also do vodka and tonic without the grapefruit and a slice and twist of lime–refreshing!
You can also infuse your vodka with mint -ummmmm!

There’s a name for this drink, even though I never knew that until today . . . It’s called a Greyhound! In this case, it’s a Tropical Greyhound – add tropical fruits, sit on the beach(real or virtual) and think of Dave with his toes in the sand! :)

It’s about 2 oz of vodka and 4 oz of white grapefruit (I use the all natural no sugar added so it’s not so sweet)- shake shake shake with some ice and pour into a pretty glass – add frozen fruit, add a slice and/or twist, and enjoy!

This is the email I received: “Dave, of My Year on the Grill, is a weekly contributor to Our Krazy Kitchen. You may know that he’s left the snow in Kansas where it belongs, and is moving to the Virgin Islands!

In honor of Dave & Jackie’s move to the tropics, us girls at Our Krazy Kitchen decided to throw him a SURPRISE “Beachwarming” party, and we’d like you all to participate.”

    I'd be delighted to drink anything in that glass! Roll on warm summer evenings when a cool drink on the porch can be a regular treat.

    Sounds great – especially if I had my toes in the sand with the sun shining. Meanwhile I'm freezing my butt of and I live in Florida! Thanks for joining the party :-)
