5:00 Fridays

I'll be teaming up with some friends old and new to run/walk/shimmy the Race for the Cure on Saturday. In case you are living under a sewer grate somewhere stinky and rather humid, surely you know that pink is the signature color for all things breast cancer-related. And so I created a lovely sipping-with-your-gal-pals-after-a-5k walk/jog/run/flutter step-while-hanging-on-the-deck-listening-to-the-Pretty-In-Pink-soundtrack-on-an-amp-cranked-to-11 cocktail.

I hope you enjoy one right after you're done feeling yourself up. Early detection, my friends!

Stop the War in My Rack
1 ounce Rain Organics Red Grape Hibiscus vodka
4 ounces of good quality champagne (Please, no Andre or lower shelf crap here!)
2 ounces pomegranate juice
splash of grenadine

Add first three ingredients to a cocktail shaker with crushed ice and shake. Strain into champagne flutes and add a dash of grenadine(just a dash, mind you!). Pop in a few pomegranate seeds or a whole strawberry to jazz up the presentation.

Cheers to keeping our racks safe!

Make sure you chat with the other walkers around you - there are so many stories out there and you'll love hearing most of them.
frozen grapes are a great treat on the walk....and have a bandana around your wrist or somewhere so if you want to get it wet at a water station so you can cool off and feel refreshed - its a treat.
I don't know how far you are walking but nothing is better than crossing the finish line with your team!
Have fun!

Hiking in a few weeks for cancer. We are so going to celebrate with this at the end of the week of wandering up and down mountains.

I would love one of those shirts. I saw them at the race today and your friends gave me this web site.

How did it go?

Joanne said...

I guess I need to give you my email address, it is : sewingsisters@gmail.com thanks.

Let me know how we go about getting one if you are still selling them. I was told you are doing the three day walk. Where are you going to do it?

Looking forward to hearing from you,
