Welcome to The Entertaining House. We do hope you'll pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and linger for a while!

I'm a Sucker for Seersucker!

Spring is almost here... I can feel it! The past couple of days have been warm enough to leave the house wearing only heavy sweaters. Our daffodils are starting to pop through the ground. The robins have been by to say hello. The sky has been blue. Nevermind that it's snowing presently, I know that soon Spring will be here. I know that soon I can put away my boots, coats, heavy sweaters, scarves and hats. Soon. I must be patient. Patience is certainly not my virtue, but I have learned that good things really do come for those who wait.

I eagerly await the warm sunny days when I can put on a little seersucker. Fresh, crisp, summery and beautiful seersucker!

 
This adorable Dooney & Bourke seersucker purse is a perfect accessory to any Springtime wardrobe!

and you know I could not possibly have a post all about Seersucker without possibly mentioning this:

 
A perfectly preppy, pink cocktail with a most perfect name!

To make your perfectly pink and preppy Seersucker Cocktail you will need:
2 oz of Grenadine
1 oz Orange Juice
2 oz. light Rum
4 oz. Tonic water

Pour all ingredients except Tonic Water into shaker. Fill a Highball glass almost full of ice cubes, and dump ice into shaker. Shake well and pour drink into Highball glass. Add Tonic Water, stir well, garnish with a Maraschino Cherry, and serve.
 
 
Happy Seersucker Everyone!
