As of late, I have been finding it practically impossible to see my friends. Everyone is so busy. Girl Guides. Soccer. Field Trips. Band. Work. Holidays. Family Emergencies. You name it.
But, when I told a few of my friends that I was going to have a Birthday Party with lots of Molson Products, they all seemed to find a reason to attend. Plus, I gave most people 2 days party notice, sometimes last minute is the best way into a busy gals life.
Or my friends are just jerks.
I really wanted to try Molson Wheat , but it was sold out. So instead I stuck to my favourite’s Coors Light, Molson Canadian and Molson Canadian 67. I drank Molson Canadian 67 for most of the night because, well let’s be honest, I weigh 200 lbs and I have to MC an event in a few days and I’m borrowing a dress from a friend and I don’t want to split it!
My plan was to do a beer and cheese tasting for all my friends. But, as most of my friends know, that when it comes to beer, I would just rather sit back and drink with my friends and have a few laughs.
Okay, I am going to cut the bull crap. My kids were sooooo sick on the weekend. Fevers, runny noses, coughs and very tired. I just sort of whipped together what I could at the last minute, which was nachos and salsa, crackers and hummus, cheezies, a veggie tray, and cheese ball and later because my friends were apparently starving, I found some frozen and thankfully not freezer burnt samosa’s and spanokapita’s in the freezer.
I do what I can.
I even converted a few non beer drinkers during the night and made a few beer cocktails. I love mixing beer and pink lemonade. I know, it sounds crazy, and my friends were looking at me like I was out of my mind, but it is super tasty and they were totally digging it. And its so easy, fill a glass with half a Molson 67 and half Pink Lemonade and add some berries to it so you look super duper classy like moi.
I even spoke french.
Next time I get my gals together, I am going to be MUCH more prepared and try this;
It’s a Skinny Peach Sangria. It’s pretty a bottle of beer, half a cup of peach puree, 1 cup of Ocean Spray White Cranberry juice and toss in some lemon juice to taste. You mix it all in a pitcher and pour over peaches, lemons and blueberries.
That was Italian for those that don’t know how super duper classy I am.
Thanks to Molson Coors Canada for providing the refreshments and thanks to my friends for loving me just the way I am.
