Welcome to the Drinking & Winning blog hop hosted by Reading Romances as a preparation for their party on March 29th.

So I'm a wine drinker (red wine) BUT I also love my Grey Goose. I came across the drink below one night and just loved it. It mixes both my favs together...check it out.

Chateau GREY GOOSE®.

Cherry Heering½Part
Amer Picon¼Parts
Spice Mix3Pinches


20 Allspice seeds
5 almonds
1 vanilla bean
1 cinnamon stick

Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and muddle well.
Add ice and shake vigorously.
Strain into a small wine glass.

To create the spice mix, place 20 allspice seeds and 5 almonds in a mortar and pestle and grind well.
Scrape the inside of a vanilla bean and grate 1 cinnamon stick into the mixture.
Place over a low fire and roast for four minutes.

Time for the giveaway! I'm giving away a copy Lover Unbound by JR Ward (it's a lil slightly used, but still in good reading condition). And why this book? because Vishous who is my fantasy dream man drinks Grey Goose too, although he drinks it straight.
