Hi Bethenny

I loved this idea and am up now trying to reproduce my Girlfriends Brunch Holiday Brunch next week. When i poured the water and went to shake, the jar was too hot to handle. When I saw the show with Handy Mama it did not seem to hot for the two of you. Any suggestions on what I can do. Also the drink is really good, sweet ans sticky (i think i used too much of everything). Love your show. Keep coming from a place of yes! Dania
