Cocktail Cruise at the Lake!!

There are always lots of fun activities at the lake during the summer and a new one this year (partly conceived by my talented Husband) was the Cocktail Cruise (affectionately known as the booze cruise!!)

The idea is that six docks (three on each side of the lake) would host a specialty drink (one appropriate for kids and another for adults) and hors d’oeuvres for 2 hours on a Saturday might and then people could float around visiting the docks and cocktailing.

We were one of the hosting docks so didn’t get a chance to cruise ourselves but we had a ton of fun welcoming people to our dock!

Hosting families were told to mark their docks…..this was ours 🙂

Since we had had such a good response to our Raspberry Zinger Lemonade at the Cocktail Off (do I sense a pattern here??!!) over July 4th weekend we decided to serve it again.

We did two hors d’oeuvres – Melon wrapped with Prosciutto and Spicy Salami Stuffed with goat cheese – both were delicious 🙂

Strider and Sage were great ambassadors and thankfully behaved themselves and didn’t steal any of the food (or drinks!)

Mr. Big decided he wanted to go to the next dock too 🙂

Our neighbors across the lake made very fancy cocktail flags – that might be on the agenda for next year 🙂

For boats that were further away we created a system for drink delivery 🙂

There were participants of all ages!

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect

All in all it was a great success and we are looking forward to doing it again next year!
