Welcome! Glad you are here. Tonight we are having a cocktail party!

Tablescape Thursday with Between Naps on the Porch

I found these adorable cocktail napkins. They each have the name of a cocktail and then a cute little character for each. Click on the first one to scroll through and see all 8.

Are those cute, or what?

Grab a glass.

Cocktails on the porch.

Today’s Lagniappe: Cuba Libre
I wasn’t familiar with this cocktail when I saw the napkin. It is a drink with a story (gotta love that). If you prefer a non-alcoholic drink, just omit the rum and you will still have a very tasty drink.

The Cuba Libre (Spanish for Free Cuba) originated around 1900 in Havana, Cuba during the Spanish-American War. Patriots aiding Cuba often toasted the West Indian Island and its freedom with this rum, cola, and lime cocktail.

  • 1-1/2 oz. dark or white rum
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Ice
  • Coca-Cola
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add the ingredients. Stir and garnish with lime wedge.

    Those are very cute cocktail napkins and a great conversation piece at the cocktail party. I enjoyed watching the video of cocktail napkins, too.
