Pink Shimmy

So we've really gotten into the virtual family game night.

Over our screens we gather from around the country to play trivia or a version of "Family Feud."

It's so much fun. Even more so when drinking is involved. Hey, nobody is driving anywhere.

This recipe is a favorite. It makes about a gallon, so feel free to cut down on the proportions.
