Still Going

I feel like the Energizer Bunny today! 😯 Even after the crazy-busy few days that I have recently lived, I’m still going! (Although, I’m finally starting to crash a little.)

Tonight, I was invited to a cocktail reception hosted by RIPE, the all natural cocktail mixers that I have blogged about a few times in the past. The event was held at Post 390 in Back Bay.

At the event, a number of classic cocktails made with RIPE mixers were featured: Bloody Mary, Whiskey Sour, Margarita, Tom Collins, and Hard Lemonade.

I considered trying something new, but I stuck to a RIPE cocktail that I knew I really enjoyed: Bloody Mary! 😀

While sipping cocktails, I enjoyed a number of passed appetizers, including Mini Sloppy Joes, Goat Cheese and Kalamata Olive Flatbread, Vegetable Potstickers, and Grilled Mac & Cheese Balls. All were delish!

I spent most of the evening chatting with my friend, Marie, who was my +1 for the evening, as well as my old college friend, Julia, who I randomly ran into at the event. It was nice catching up with these ladies over cocktails.

Up next: face-plant into bed. I am exhausted!
