Trader Sam’s Schweitzer Falls Cocktail Recipe

Thank you for visiting Focused on the Magic in our third Ultimate Blog Party 2013 (#UBP13 on Twitter) hosted by Susan and Janice at 5 Minutes For Mom! I'm so delighted you stopped by!  Let's kick off the celebration with a refreshing Trader Sam's Schweitzer Falls Cocktail (you can click the pic below for the recipe) and fireworks from the Magic Kingdom just for you: 

This is my third year partying with the Ultimate Blog Party. If you'd like, you can take your drink with you over HERE to read my introductory post from UBP11.

Want to know 
5 Fast Facts about my blog and myself:

1. My name is Deb. I live in the countryside of New Jersey very close to Washington's Crossing with my husband and 2 sons and a dog named Einstein.

2. We enjoy spending time outdoors and traveling. Some of us enjoy playing music, open wheel race cars, making wine from our homegrown grapes, gardening, scrapbooking, photography and cooking.

3. I've been a photographer for 40+ years. Yup, I'm that old;) My photos have been published in travel publications, magazines and the NY Times. I was (years ago in a galaxy far far away...) the go-to-gal for celebrities and their pictures in the Hampton's and NYC. I am not a professional photographer by any means but I am a serious amateur who is still learning everything there is to know about photography and having a blast doing it.

4. I am an uber Disney fan. I love the parks and Disney cruising. We have been Disney Vacation Club members since 1997 at The Disney Boardwalk Villas. I've been to Disney World too many times to count in the past 20+ years and have taken 4 fabulous Disney cruises. I am not a travel agent but enjoy sharing my Disney expertise with anyone who will listen.

5. Here at Focused on the Magic I share my love of all things Disney with photography, travel tips, corporate news, Disney dining reviews and recipes. I have a strong connection with my friends in the Disney online community and enjoy meeting with them in the parks or online. Each week I host a Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop for bloggers to share their Disney pictures. It's a lot of fun to share memories and visit with other bloggers.
