March 19th - Meyer Lemon Cosmopolitan

It Can't Come Quickly Enough...
Finally, the weekend is here!  But, unfortunately, this is the last day of the nice weather here in Chicago-land for the next couple of days.  The clouds are already rolling in.   This week has been pretty blah for me so this grey weather coming is a great way to finish it off.  And, just in time, it's cocktail day! (ROUND OF APPLAUSE)  I'm going to savor this.  Next week is going to be a busy one for me.  But, let's not think of that.  Instead, lets think happy yellow thoughts like the color of this wonderful martini.



White Cranberry Juice: $3.49
Vodka: had (come on I'm Polish, I always have vodka)
Sweet & Sour Mix: $2.49
Meyer Lemon Juice: $3.29

Total: $9.27


FAST:  I'm no Tom Cruise in Cocktail, but I can manage to throw this together in at least 5 minutes.

EASY:  Like a Sunday morning.

FRESH:  Lemon fresh. 

Overall:  I like that they call it a meyer lemon cosmopolitan, but they really should call this a lemon drop martini.  Essentially, that's what this looks and tastes like.  I can get a little of the cranberry, but the major flavor is lemon.  Don't get me wrong, in either case this is DELICIOUS!   I'm just saying if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck....

Tomorrow is a pie that I've never made before.  I'm really looking forward to it.  See ya tomorrow!

"Easy - like Sunday morning." You've got me singing that song now! LOVE the Commodores! I think I just dated myself with that statement!

P.S. - please no more pig head pictures!
