Mom's Night

I love an excuse to have a party and last night it was Mom's Night! Getting a group of moms from the hood together for a few drinks is so fun but so are the preparations.
 Ran out to the grocery in the morning and picked up a pumpkin, some fall squash and a bunch of sunflowers.  I hollowed out the pumpkin and used it as a beer cooler for my favorite low calorie brew.  The woman at the checkout asked, "Oh so are you going to put that nice pumpkin out on your front steps?" I'm going to hollow it out and put ice cold beers in there!  Tee Hee
 Mom's night is easy to throw together because everyone brings something.  Bottle of wine, appetizer, dessert. I spend time cleaning and making the house look pretty and the ladies take care of the rest.  

I do like to have a drink to prepare for those who aren't into the bottles of light beer and wine so I came up with a seasonal apple cider martini.

Apple Cider Martini
1 Shot Cinnamon Clove Infused Vodka
Apple Cider
Splash of Apple Brandy
Garnish with apple slice, cinnamon stick or festive spider

Chill martini glass. Rinse martini glass with apple brandy and dump it out. Combine vodka, apple cider and ice in a martini shaker. Strain liquid mixture into a martini glass. Garnish. 

Such a fun night!!! 
This morning's evidence of a great night with fabulous friends!
Happy Friday!!!!
