And viola! It was a light tasting drink perfect for afternoon showers and parties but….I’d add more vodka for a night shindig ;-). Sidenote: my martini glasses pretty slick huh? Scored ’em at the Goodwill. BOOM!

The chili salted rim gave it a kick that would pair well with Mexican foods. This would also be great as an alternative to a margarita. It’ll save you some calories. A pink drink that’s for a good cause without the guilt?….

….I’ll drink to that!
