It’s Electrifying!

Who doesn’t love pre-dinner cocktails…much deserved when dinner isn’t on the table until 10pm!  Also a great way to keep company in good spirits and allows the cook to cook! I must remember this detail the next time my grandmother is cooking Thanksgiving dinner and 15 of us are all crowded around her in the kitchen!

I had some girlfriends over the other night for dinner (which was served around 10pm)  and wanted to make a fun pre-dinner drink.  One of my friends was incorporating more fruits and veggies into her diet for this Lenten season and I recalled a lovely, eye-popping, Chartreuse green, kiwi mojito recipe from Rachael Ray’s magazine.  Super simple, super tasty and did I mention electrifying-ly gorgeous.  They were a hit!
