The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Dog Day Drinks!

From our School of Flaunt Handbook page on Fb - enjoy!

It is "Flaunt Foodie Friday" and we are in the hot Dog Days of Summer! Having said that we love summer at the School of Flaunt. Outdoor parties, lots of events to attend, drives up the coast, and vacations! And what could be better with all of these than a wine cooler/spritzer, wine cocktail, or sangria? Some would call them summer time drinks we call them "flauntilicious fun". BUT THERE ARE SOME RULES TO FOLLOW! Don't use the cheap wines but don't uncork an expensive bottle either. Your wine is the base for these drinks. Think sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio. A definite no-no on chardonnay, way to oak y. Spanish wines are a great choice for a sangria. That should be a no brainer since sangria is a Spanish invention. So where to begin? Here are a few "flaunt fabulous" drinks that we just saw in the Food section of our local paper this week. They should wow your flaunt fab friends!

4 ozs. sauvignon blanc

WATERMELLON BELLINI - makes 2 servings

3/4 cup watermelon chunks - seeds removed

1/3 cup frozen peach chunks

1/2 oz. lemon juice
