I had to take Holly to the doctor today for a little check-up. If you recall, I took her two weeks ago with a cancer scare. Turns out it was just a pimple (still so embarrassing) and while we were there we discovered she had a little ear infection. We had to go back today after two weeks of drops to see if she was better. She is better but not 100% yet so we're going to do another round.

After the vet I came home and gave Holly a bath. She was such a stinky girl!!! I usually bathe her every 5-7 days and I had probably gone 10 without one. About 20 minutes after I washed and dried her, I got a call from her groomer saying she had a cancellation tomorrow if I wanted the spot. Poor Holly! Two baths in two days. She's not going to be happy with me but at least she'll be all beautified for Christmas!

I have discovered a fun new cocktail thanks to Table Mesa in Bentonville. It's called the Hemmingway Daiquiri. Apparently this was Ernest Hemmingways favorite cocktail so it's been named after him. I don't typically like a lot of cocktails because I don't like the taste of hard liquor. However, this one is so delicious that I had to beg the bartender to give me the secret recipe. I've decided to share because it's too good to keep it all to myself!
---1/2 oz fresh squeezed lime
---1 1/2 oz dark rum
---3/4 oz cherry cocktail syrup
---2 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice.
Shake together and enjoy!

I really did freshly squeeze the juice. I just did a bunch at once so it wouldn't be a hassle. I don't think it would taste as good if it weren't fresh. What's funny is I don't like grapefruit but I LOVE this cocktail! You should try it! I know you'll love it too. Cheers!
