School starts for us today, so I had to celebrate the last official day of summer yesterday in style. Which means I pretty much spent the day drinking wine coolers and pretending like I don’t have to deal with the shit storm that is distance learning. While you’re pretending to be rich, childless and in Palm Springs (is that just me?) it helps to have a vintage 1970’s kaftan. I can’t decide whether this is more 1970’s cruise wear or really chic cult leader… Either way the kaftan is from a company called Mary. Juana, I kid you not, and was purchased by my father in Mexico some time in the ’70’s. The earrings are a mystery, but the shoes are Anne Klein from at least two years ago.
This is more of a drink recommendation than a classic cocktail recipe since this drink came directly from a can. Original House Wines makes my favorite canned wine, and while I’m partial to anything that has bubbles in it, they also make some very tasty cocktail inspired wine coolers. This one happens to be the Casa-Rita, their take on a Margarita, but the Paloma is very good and the Tropical Spritz is great too!
Keep scrolling to see how I like to drink my Casa-Ritas!
