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
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!
