My mom was a big party planner. I’ve talked about this before, but she LOVED to throw parties, especially at the holidays. I spent a lot of nights peaking around the corners of the living and dining rooms with my sisters, spying on the grown-ups and listening to their grown-up conversations. It all seemed very sophisticated. These parties were where Grandma Beautiful’s Christmas Citrus Slush was born…the perfect drink for a holiday fete.
