About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


Cocktail Hour: Treat Yourself to a Pallini Fresco

Yesterday was spent chillin' around the homefront; enjoying the Spring-like weather and watching the Spartans beat the Huskies. The R&R was long overdue for us, and so was some happy news for the people of Michigan. A celebratory mood quickly replaced the dark cloud that has been hanging over this state. Even if short lived, I plan to bask in the glory.
I decided to break open a bottle of Limoncello liqueur that my friend Amie brought me a few weeks ago. It's really good stuff ~ lemon-y and very refreshing. You can drink it straight, but it's a little too sweet for me, so I decided to make the Pallini Fresco recipe that was on the bottle. It went a little something like this:
1 Part Limoncello
1 Part Cranberry Juice
1 Part Club Soda
Garnish with lemon or lime (I had neither)
The result was super refreshing and deeelicious!!! I think this is my new favorite cocktail. Surely I will be enjoying a few of these on a warm summer day.

That was an exciting win for the Spartans! Like you said, it's exactly what the people of Michigan needed! As a fan of the much darker shade of blue than UNC blue, I will be cheering for the Spartans on Monday - GO GREEN! :)

That drink sounds refreshingly delicious - I could go for one right now, despite it being not quite 10 am. :)

I may just have to try that myself, sounds delicious and great for the summer months ahead.
