World Gin Day is almost upon us and I couldn't be more happy about it. There was a time when I didn't like gin but that is well in the past. Nothing quite says summer to me like a cold gin and and tonic on a hot summer day. Gin and tonic was the first gin cocktail I really loved, but I'm trying to branch out.

Benita, Your Vino ValetI love a good Rose'. To me, they go perfectly with lots of foods and are even as great as your chosen sipping wine. I don't know that I am the only one but the first time I had a Rose' that wasn't White Zinfandel, I expected sweet and fruity. Some are! But they can also be bone dry, like the first one that I had ever tasted. ...more
Quick! What's the coolest thing you've ever done on vacation? It's hard to decide, I know! What about the fanciest thing you've ever done? If you had told me a few weeks ago that I'd be wearing shorts, tennis shoes, and sunscreen while simultaneously feeling at the height of luxury, I'd have laughed! But when we traveled through the amazing scenery of Burgundy, France on two wheels, it was clear that we were enjoying the vacation of our lives....more
