This all sound both delicious and fun and just what the doctor ordered as a cure for a long, cold, nasty winter. I'll take two of each!

Thank you, Jamie, for making a Five on Friday just for me! I'll raise a glass or two in your honor as soon as I can get to one!

Cool theme and drinks...My dad's favorite line is "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" and his grandkids got him a t-shirt that says the same!
