Last year, my dear friend and I were out for one of our ‘drinks on the town’ nights.  It was a time we both savored as busy mamas, each week.  We could dress up a bit, put on our brightly colored lipstick for the evening and enjoy wonderful conversation… mostly she made me laaaaaaaaugh and it felt so good to my weary soul.  I’m talking about this lady, fyi.

On one particular occasion, we went to one of our standard local spots and they had something new on the menu, a Red Bell Pepper Cocktail.

It was so unique that we decided instantly we both had to give it a try and no surprise at all, but we both LOVED it.  I immediately set about to recreate it at home.  (And can we talk about the gorgeous color!)

Plus, the red bell pepper creates the most lovely pink/peach color.  The color varies depending on how much you muddle those bell peppers!  And aren’t these napkins and glasses from World Market the most lovely?
