What's gotten in to me? I am craving cocktails like no one's business. There's just something about summer that makes me want to sit on my deck and drink drunken concoctions. Normally I'm not a huge fan of alcohol - I drank my lifetime limit during college. But lately I've been wanting a little hair of the dog.
Saturday night at the Minnesota Blogger Party, I had a strawberry/basil martini that was just incredible.
New pal Cathy, in her boozeday features, has recipes for a Snicker Bar Addict's martini and something really heavenly called a Queen's Park Swizzle that I'm ready to Make.Right.Now. Except that we have no vodka. Who unknowingly runs out of vodka? Boring people like us, that's who.
Or perhaps I'd like a good Mojito? Lack of backyard mint is a hindrance. But I was gearing up - I made 2 cups of simple syrup and left it on the stove to cool. After supper efficient table-clearer Twin #1 dumped the whole pot out, right down the drain. I almost cried.
Yeah, I'm white trash but like my cupcake says "We're educated and INTERESTING white trash!"
