Happy hours are a little different these days with everything being shut down. I know I personally have so enjoyed zoom and FaceTime calls with my family and friends. It is a nice way to connect and laugh during these times. With Mother’s Day this weekend and lots of quarantine birthdays we thought it would be fun to do a group virtual happy hour. One person sends out a drink and appetizer recipe and then everyone makes that same drink and app at home. We cheers and catch up! It is a fun way to try new recipes and cocktails (see both recipes at the bottom of the post).
Since happy hour is at home comfy clothes are a must. If you don’t own any Barefoot Dreams blankets or sets trust me you need them in your life. I just gifted my sister a set and she loves it. Chicos has a fab selection of loungewear and Barefoot Dreams apparel. These pants are a dream. I own both colors. Like wearing your favorite blanket. I paired them with this over-sized sweater for a neutral cozy look.
What’s On The Menu?
Black Bean Hummus Dip
- 1 container of black bean hummus
- Halved cherry tomatoes
- Diced cucumbers
- Slide green onions
- Olive oil
Spread a layer of black bean hummus on a plate. Top with cherry tomatoes, green onions, cucumbers. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper.
- Half a watermelon juiced
- 3 limes juiced
- 2 oz of tequila per drink (we did 8oz)
- 1 oz of triple sec per drink
- Chile lime salt (preferred, but not necessary)
In a blender combine the juiced watermelon, triple sec, tequila, and juiced limes. You can serve over ice or add ice in for a more frothy drink. Line the rim with Chile lime salt if desired.
Cheers, friends! Stay safe, happy and healthy. Sending well wishes to you and yours!
