Rooster cottage...Outdoor Wednesday...


Today is outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan
@ asoutherndayreamer.blogspot.com.
Please join the fun by joining the other participants and viewing their photos.

I spotted this little gem of a house across from one of our local parks.
Let's take a peak!

Please click on the photos to enlarge to enjoy all the cute little details.

The door is painted with bright and colorful flowers.
Can you see all those adorable bird houses waiting for Mr. & Mrs. Feather to take up residency with their little ones?

Who needs an alarm system when you have a big Rooster to rule the roost!

All this peaking has made me thirsty.
What better way to quench your thirst then with a cool glass of
Emeril's Red Rooster Cocktail.

  • 1 1/2 quarts cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1 (6-ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, defrosted
  • 2 cups vodka

Combine all of the ingredients in a large plastic container. Freeze for several hours. It will not freeze solid, but rather achieve the consistency of a slushy.

Scoop into punch cups or wine glasses and serve.

  18. I love your pictures and your cocktail. That much vodka would convince that cranberry juice was strawberry nectar :me -)Both are wonderful. Thank you for sharing. Have a great day.

  23. The rooster is fabulous. I wouldn't mind one for my cottage garden. Frozen cocktails are always very, very dangerous; it doesn't feel like you are drinking until it is TOO LATE!
