Most days my daily footwear is dictated by the weather.
My shoe of choice is my trusty Birkenstocks. I've been wearing the same style for almost 20 years, I replace them every other year (a standard B-day gift from The Best Husband In The World) because they are worn to the cork.
Early morning dog walks have me wearing these.
Unless it's raining, then I wear these.
When I am working (cooking) I wear these.
But every now and then
I wear something like these.
They are the perfect accessory to these:
Cosmopolitans: makes 2
1 cup vodka of choice (I LOVE Tito's. A small distillery out of Texas. If you can find it, try it!)
1/2 cup Cointreau
Juice of 1/2 lime or splash Rose's lime juice
1/4 cup cranberry juice
Fill a shaker with crushed ice. Add the vodka, Cointreau, lime and cranberry juice. Shake vigorously for 30 shakes. It HAS to be 30 shakes. Really hard. The perfect martini has tiny slivers of ice crystals floating on top. That keeps it cold from the first sip to the last.
Put your party shoes on and strain into two chilled martini glasses.
Repeat as necessary.
