Well, it’s Lent, so I’m not imbibing. That usually means I don’t have a Girlie Drink. But since I forgot to let ArmedGeek know, I shall feature what I have been drinking.
Ever since I got the Keurig from Hubby, it has been that bad. Except no coffeepot is actually involved. Nor fang-like nails. But the ease in which one can acquire a cup of coffee is directly proportional to the amount one consumes in a day.
Anyway, how do y’all take your coffee?
The prognosticators prognosticated sleet and ice and snow for my area today.
As usual, they were wrong.
Remind me to send them a Thank You card.
Seriously, Punxsutawney Phil Sowerby has a better track record than most weather peeps.
So, today I shall be doing chores at home, and trying to stay warm while the prognosticated temperature reaches its zenith. Basically what I am trying to say is, I have run out of excuses and must now clean house.
And how will you be spending this inglorious bastardly day??
First up is Hurricane Sandy, and I have been sending prayers up to my East Coast friends. Next, we have Halloween, and my girls just informed me this past weekend what they wish me to do for their costumes. After that, we have Día de los Muertos which coincides with All Saints Day, which means I have a cake to make for the feast of All Saints and prepare a few gifts for friends to take to their loved ones’ graves. Though I don’t observe Day of the Dead, I help my friends with decorations. Oh, and lest I forget, after that it’s All Souls Day, which means going to Mass and praying for those departed as well and honoring their resting place.
By the time those three days are over, I will feel like one of these.
- 1 oz pineapple juice
- 1 oz. orange juice
- 1 oz. lime juice
- 2 oz. light rum
- 1 oz. dark rum
- ½ oz. apricot brandy
- 1 tsp. sugar
- ½ oz. Bacardi 151, or other strong rum
Pour all ingredients except the Bacardi 151 into a shaker with ice. Shake well, and pour into an old fashioned glass with ice. Pour the Bacardi 151 to float on top, and garnish with orange slice, mint and cherry.
Too bad I can’t hand these out during Trick-or-Treating
Well, here’s the flip side to the Open Thread from two weeks back.
Personally, I don’t think any of you will ever be afforded this opportunity, but in the miniscule chance I may be a teeny, tiny bit wrong…
Who are the three people you wouldn’t piss on in Hell?? And yes, I did mean “wouldn’t”. Because if you DID piss on them, you would be doing them a favor now, right??
As y’all know, Easter Sunday is almost here, so I thought I would search for a pretty girlie cocktail to make to celebrate
being able to drink booze again the end of Lent and the most pastelly time of the year.
The Pink Bonnet
- 1 ½ ounces Gin
- ½ ounce simple syrup
- ¾ ounce lemon juice
- a few dashes of grenadine (for color)
- White of a small egg (or 2 tbsp. egg white substitute)
Shake all ingredients without ice to emulsify the egg whites. Add ice to shaker, and shake again until well mixed. Pour into a cocktail glass of choice. Garnish with muddled mint leaves or a lemon slice, if desired. Enjoy!
