Congratulations Graduates | Go forth with good habits

A friend stopped by recently to pick up napkins to give her graduate.  What was most gratifying about this visit was to hear that her daughter had ASKED for Hen House Linens napkins for her new apartment.  This sweet graduate wants a reminder of family meals around the table and she wants a civilized start to her new life.  She has her priorities straight.  I have no doubt her proud mother knows she is on the right path to a successful and happy home.

Momma's Lemonade | Fresh and Refreshing

Just in time for Mother's day.  This easy drink is sure to please.

lemon-bourbon-mint-cocktail-for-mother's-day

1.5 ounces of Bourbon (don't waste the top shelf sippin' stuff for this recipe)

1 ounce triple sec

4 ounces lemonade (don't skimp on the lemonade. You need the tart and the sweet to balance the bourbon)

Fresh mint.

Combine liquids and stir well. Pour over a glass of ice. Crush a few leaves of mint between your fingers to release the oil, then add to the glass. Garnish with sprig of mint.
