bougainvillea cocktail

Sometimes you (and by you, I mean me) are sorting through old photos and you come across things that you've completely forgotten about. Like this beautiful bougainvillea cocktail my friend Kate whipped up the morning after my birthday last year. (And YES, we were drinking in the morning- it was my birthday weekend, fools. Judge away.) It was inspired by the gorgeous bougainvillea blooming on the patio of our Airbnb. That crazy, vibrant, pink color begged us to create an equally pink drink. Desert flowers have a way of hypnotizing you into doing things like that.

Posting these photos now also gives me the perfect excuse to promote Kate's newest adventure: Drinking With Chickens. It's pretty much the best damn cocktail drinking site ever. Because, well...Chickens...and cocktails. Duh.

I'm sorry to report I have no idea what the recipe is. Mostly, because I was more interested in drinking it than remembering the ingredients. Our only hope now is to pop over to Drinking With Chickens and barrage Kate with endless requests so we can whip up our own versions of this deliciously pink concoction. UPDATE - Our cocktail dreams have been answered! Check out the recipe here- there's bubbly wine and hibiscus tea involved, so yeah...
