In this weeks COTW segment I will be talking about a cocktail that will remind you of your crazy aunt at Christmas time – Aunt Clara’s Pink Bunny Pajamas.
One if my favorite saying is from Dixie Carter, star of Designing women She said “This is the South and we’re proud of our crazy people. We don’t hide them up in the attic, we bring them right down to the living room to show them off. No one in the South ever asks if you have crazy people in your family, they just ask what side they’re on.”
And while you may not have a Aunt Clara, you certainly get an image of that crazy aunt wearing pink bunny slippers sipping on a cocktail.
And in that vein I am starting today with a new series on Christmas Cocktails to drink this holiday season.
Thanks to Town and Country website for all of these great holiday cocktails
