Two years ago on New Years Eve my husband and I had only been dating for a few months. We went out to a local bar with his brother to celebrate, but it was a bit bitter sweet. I would be leaving in a few days to move to Austin, TX for my music therapy internship.
As midnight hit this song came on… Go ahead and listen. It will get you in the New Years Eve mood!
Cheesy, I know. And we both just looked at each other, started laughing, and joined in with the crowd in the singing and dancing cheesiness to ring in the new year. It was a blast. Two years later, we are now getting ready to celebrate the new year as husband and wife and I can’t hear this song without thinking about that night and where we are now.
However you are celebrating tonight, I wish you all a safe evening filled with love, laughter, and excitement for what 2012 has in store for you!
Here are a few cocktail recipes for you that would be perfect for the evening and one to get you through the morning after.
- Cut 1 lemon into slices for garnish and squeeze the juice from the others into the pitcher.
- Add all of the other ingredients except the celery and beef jerky into the pitcher and mix well.
- Pour into 4 glasses with ice.
- Serve with celery stock and a large slice of beef jerky or bacon.
