The Frenchy Cocktail

Sometimes after work there are beautiful, sunny afternoons where all important work is put aside, and it becomes possible to enjoy life.  For this perfect afternoon I sat outside on the deck, stretched out my legs, and read a book while basking in the sun.  Some music played in the background and life was good.

What is needed to make a good life better?  A cocktail, of course.  Something light and fruity, and a little bit fizzy.  After coming inside to check my level of redness, definitely some color, but not too much, I looked through my bookmarks to find a cocktail to make.

This Frenchy Cocktail looked beautiful and simple enough.  Obviously I needed to buy all the ingredients so I put on my flip flops on and headed to the store.  On the way I passed an adorable little boy, probably 8 or 9, singing as he walked home.  He was so cute I couldn’t help but smile.  As I did, he turned to me and said “Good Afternoon.”  This made me smile even more so I turned and said good afternoon back and told him how much I liked his singing.  He responded with a big grin and a cheerful thank you.  My interaction with him made my perfect afternoon even more lovely!

Once I got home this cocktail took about 2 minutes to make; add some ice, portion out some pineapple juice, cranberry juice, and vodka, then top with some seltzer, done.  I tried the drink with and without seltzer and the seltzer just adds a little extra zing.  This is a delightful cocktail that seems fancy, but is super easy to throw together.  I imagine this would be lovely in a pitcher for a party.  A surefire way to make a great afternoon even better!
