As in, 2 years ago, I created a life size red phone booth and giant double decker bus.
I had a theme party, complete with a mandatory dress code. It was fabulous.
Before I knew it, winter of 2014 had arrived, and Sochi was around the corner.
This year, I'm toning down things, there will be no giant buses or phone booths, but I am going to have one of these, the Sochi Mule.
I've been dreaming up a spin on the other famous Russian bev, the Moscow Mule, but adapted it to my taste buds (ginger beer ain't my thang).
Root Beer (diet or full sug)
Vanilla Vodka (1 shot)
Grenadine (1 tablespoon)
& a Maraschino Cherry Garnish.
Served in a traditional copper mug.
So mark your calendars, and your shopping lists - the Opening Ceremonies are Friday night at 7:30pm.
Pour yourself a Sochi Mule, wear your red, white and blue, and have your own Party in the USA.
