Nothing more graceful than the curtsy. Nothing more noble than the bow.

Two wonderful heirloom touches that are almost all but forgotten in our modern world of today, the curtsy has held up with the ballerinas of our world, while the bow is still a proper form of greeting among Asian cultures.

A lovely gesture for any host would be to entertain the idea of bringing back the graceful, dance-like moves that women & gentlemen practiced in another era.

kahluaToday’s featured recipe will be Grandma’s Kahlua, a very special treat that she was known for among friends & family.

Grandma’s kahlua was something that truly brought people together. Making it was no small feat as you’ll see by the quantities it makes on the recipe card, so she always ensured it was an experience had by all.

She would literally make a party out of the making of her kahlua each time she was ready to stock up. She’d invite friends over, having each bring their own empty bottles and throw a great big party as she entertained guests while making the drink and serving them snacks & desserts with kahlua in the recipe.

What an experience it was and friends always looked forward to her kahula parties and were thrilled once the recipe was complete and they had their own bottle full to take home & enjoy! I hope you will do the same.

Choosing an appropriate signature drink truly is an art.

Absolutely a southern tradition, and one worth continuing, consider selecting a signature drink for your event guests at your next gathering. There are many things to consider before making a rash decision. What is the occasion? What else are you serving in terms of food? beverages? Who are your guests and what do they like?

A signature drink can be one that you own and always serve when you entertain, truly a signature of yourself as a host that guests look forward to and know will be there each and every time. For this, I’d recommend you choose something that is truly special & meaningful in someway to you. Perhaps it is a Manhattan because that was your grandfather’s drink of choice. Or something with peach schnapps because you are from the fine state of Georgia.

Or, a signature drink can be one that fits the occasion. Like margaritas for a summer cookout, mint juleps for a Derby party or a flirty martini for a ladies night.

Whatever your drink of choice, having another special option for guests on top of wine & beer will help to solidify you as an expert in the art of entertaining!
