Secret Santa Soiree Update

I've been shopping for my Secret Santa Soiree partner, trying to follow all the rules posted by Suzanne of  ColoradoLady fame.

After reading my partner's blog, and her SSS Question and Answer, I started to plan for her surprise.  I seem to be finding lots of little things instead of one big gift.  It turns out my SSS partner has strange needs and wants. Who doesn't? I'm trying my best to surprise her.  So far I've been to the mall (didn't get anything there - I just like to go to the mall), the fabric shop, a bookstore, and a few other places around town collecting her Christmas treats.

After a long day, I've come home to make one of my favorite wintertime drinks.  I guess my family thinks of this as a winter drink because it was in the winter when our Baby made us watch "The Big Lebowski."  I can't recommend this movie, I didn't care for the language or the plot - if there was one - and something about John Goodman really creeps me out...  Face it, except for Sam Elliott and the White Russian - the movie is a total waste. 

Since it appears Mr. Elliott isn't able to join us tonight, we'll just have to make do with a White Russian... 

1 1/2 oz.  Vodka
2  oz. Kahlua
2 1/2 oz Cream (yes, whipping cream... don't worry, it's o.k., it's almost Christmas)

Hand full of ice

Put everything into a cocktail shaker. Shake until top is frosty.

Pour into your favorite old fashioned glass.


Tell me, is it really a White Russian if it's made with Texas Vodka?

A white russian is my FAVORITE drink! Sooooo yummy. Floyd and I like to have one at night after a stressful day. Love it! Like dessert in a glass.

We do secret santa in house church but I hate that the lists are always last minute.

I think it's really sweet that you are putting so much thought into being a Secret Santa. I'm sure the recipient will appreciate it! :)
