Last week I put the finishing touches on our Annual Photo Book, previewed it one last time and placed the order – 2019 is literally in the books. This photo from Christmas did not make the cut, but I wanted to share it with you, for one simple reason. It sparkles. Sparkly things make me smile and therefore it qualifies as a ‘captured moment.’
Since I am sharing the photo, I thought it only right to share the recipe for the two cocktails inside the glasses. You never know when you might want to mix one up – hint, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.
P.S. I have counted twenty-four round objects (twenty-six if you count the reflections) in the photo which means it also qualifies for this week’s photo challenge. Teri over at Second Wind Leisure Perspective, is the host of Sunday Stills, but this week she has enlisted Hugh at Hugh’s News to carry on in her absence. To see more interpretations of the theme ‘Round’ or to enter your own, please zip over there and check it out.
