Recipe Friday--Little Green Elf

You see those smart strong women right there? That's part of my posse. Here's what we do: We see each other through marriage, divorce, pregnancy, graduating children, medical scares, career changes, and burying our dead. We lift each other up, eat lunch, and keep each others secrets. We lived through two Junior League presidencies and that was no small amount of drama. I cannot count the number of casseroles we've trotted back and forth to each other when the occasion called for it. We have measured our lives in cans of cream of mushroom soup, bottles of wine, and football games.

In this season, I am thankful for them--and that goes for the ones who don't happen to be in the picture.

Every year Dr. Great Smile (that's her in the blue hat) makes us a wonderful little drink that inspires fun and requires little energy.

Little Green Elf

Mix one part Midori melon liqueur and one part champagne. Drop in a maraschino cheery. Drink. Mix another.

Merry, Merry Christmas!


  1. The Little Green Elf sounds yummy. I need to try this! ;)

  2. Whoa, sounds good! I love mimosas. The champagne and orange juice. I am going to try this one.

    And I do envy you all the lovely ladies!

  3. This post made me smile! Even if I am reading it a week late. If I have half as many sweet friends when I am fifty something I will be blessed.
