The Real Housewives Cocktail Contest Roundup

I'm finally getting a chance to post the roundup for the Real Housewives Cocktail contest. I'm on vacation right now and attending Pastry Camp( all Chocolate ) at the French Pastry School Chicago. Can I just say I am am having the best time and this course is changing my life. Literally! Stay tuned for some Glamh-a-rous pastries coming.

So back to the purpose of this post. Unfortunately I didn't get many entries. But they were all stellar! I did try to get prizes for the actual housewives and husbands to no avail. But I did find this great prize to give away to whomever wins the poll,The Williams and Sonoma Bar and Wine Guides. A great set of books for any bar.
Judy from No Fear Entertaining gave us this fabu CelloRita. A sinful yet refreshing concoction go Limoncello and Tequila inspired by the Barneys from Orange County.

Chris from Mele Cotte was obviously inspired by the local flavor of peaches and those sassy Atlanta wives with Sheree’s Sassy Southern Stance.

Michelle from Big Black Dogs gave us the Red Patent Leather Swinger inspired by the most flamboyant honorary 'housewife', Simon. Need I say more?

And finally my cocktail The Countess' Cherry Lime Gin Rickey. I will post mine in the polls, but naturally am not eligible for a prize.

On Twitter I got a great recipe from a non Food blogger, Nadiart inspired by the not one of Bravos Housewives, but a a more Desperate one Bree. Perfection in a glass. Rose Lemon Drop Martini in under 140 characters. She then advises how to garnish:

" it looks pretty garnished w/ rose petal, slice lemon & pinksugar rimmer - if I had the ingredients I'd make one and send u a photo"

So here are some great cocktails for the weekend. Enjoy and go vote for one on the left sidebar.

Definitely had to vote on that one because cocktails are always a good thing. So fun you're taking a pastry class! Sounds like a blast.

Courtney, you are so photogenic, but then again you are at cooking camp so how could you be sad. Great round up.

Lovely cocktails! I had a splendid one last Sunday - I'm not sure what all was in it, but some of the ingredients were Absolut, lemon juice, some grapefruit and hibiscus syrup. It was truly heavenly.

Cocktails at 10am I say! C-town, you're looking good in the chef's outfit.
