Husbands are amazing people. Mine puts up with me and has been elevated to sainthood by my friends. So as a surprise I treated him to dinner on the porch. We started off the evening with gin and tonics.
He's easy to surprise. The smile on his face was worth the prep-work.
With the weather as hot and sticky as it was, I chilled everything. Shrimp cocktail for him too. I made this set of napkins. I needed man napkins. Men don't want a pink napkin with their drink. Black and white was a good choice, what do you think?
With the US Open weeks away I decided to get out our golf glassware.
See that golf ball in there !
Plenty of cold limes. We add a whole lime to every drink. The extra lime juice makes a great G and T. I love this tray too. I don't over polish silver. I don't mind little age spots.
Yes, I know these are sugar tongs, but they worked just fine in a pinch.
Doesn't that look cold?
I didn't want to sit the tonic water out in the plastic bottle so I used a wine bottle I had saved. This bottle is so cute with the houses on it.. It's from a 2000 vintage white wine that we had at the Biltmore.
A little closer....
I love when my husband notices something. Square ice cubes? Where did you get those? Really, I have had these ice trays forever.
This was the end product... his.....
The first G and T I ever had was with my mother and father in law while I was dating their son. It was a family event to make everyone a cold glass and sit in the back yard on the deck. Very happy memories !
I hope you enjoy. Happy Thursday Jules ♥
