Recession Happy Hour
A friend of mine recently hosted a happy hour with the stipulation it was either two-buck Chuck or a bottle of $5 something. A worthy challenge!
I picked up a bottle of Lambrusco at Trader Joe's for 4.99. I love the stuff, and only discovered it after poring through a wine-pairing cook book. Like a little sparkle in your wine? Lambrusco is the ticket.
I had a bottle of rose hanging around, and even though I wasn't a fan, I brought it. Another guest, gifted foodwise, plopped a strawberry into her coupe, and it became the rage. And, what do you know, the rose was now a wonderful summer tipple.
