cara’s cocktail

IMG_1965We just returned home from a great weekend at the cottage. We spent 3 days and 2 nights with friends eating , fishing and laughing. Oh, and…drinking. We took lots of pictures this weekend and I have been working on putting them together in some sort of happy blog order. I thought maybe the best way would be to group them in a couple different posts. The first one being Cara’s Cocktails because it sorta started off the Saturday.

After arriving on the Friday evening drinks in hand and covered in mosquito bites. We spent the first night getting settled and finishing off most of the beer we (painstakingly)  brought up. Laughing and talking till sun started to peek through the trees. We woke up Saturday to a huge wonderful (hung over) breakfast that Cara and Tavis brought up. Then headed down to the dock  with our coffee to set up our blankets, fishing gear and our afternoon drinks. After we dunked our aching hung over heads in the cold lake (and Chris dove in for a cold sobering dip), the guys then took off to the car to collect the rest of the beer and wander around the island. We were left at the dock with the all the ingredients needed for the cocktails. These super easy and sugary sweet “booze on booze” drinks will get the afternoon started with a warm giggle filled buzz. We polished off a few by the time the boys got back. By late afternoon, early evening we all had rosy red sunburnt cheeks and had all caught more fish then we could count. The rest of the weekend  was full of more drinks, food and bonfires.

I wish we had a larger cottage and could fit more people. The cottage is so much fun with friends. We are going to have to figure out a way to squeeze a few more people into our little two bedroom cottage….we also may need an extra bathroom.
