Fatherless Day Poolside Cocktails

by on Jun.20, 2012, under Food & Cocktails, Parties & Gatherings

This is a bit late…

For Father’s Day, my dadless friends and I drank tropical cocktails, floated around a Palm Springs swimming pool, turned about five shades darker, told amusing stories about our long-gone dads, and barbecued slabs of meat.

To cool ourselves in the desert sun, we chomped on frozen grapes, and also used the grapes as a garnish for our drinks. Two of our easy-peasy quaffs: a screwdriver with muddled grapes and the Gold ‘n’ Stormy, a mix of golden rum and ginger beer. (You’re supposed to use dark rum to make a Dark ‘n’ Stormy, but oh well. Golden rum works too!)

So, happy belated papa’s day to all the men out there who are fatherly to anyone…

    I think this is the best tradition. I’m glad you floated around in a pool with cocktails. The best way to celebrate, if you ask me. Big hugs to you! Love.
