I love a good drink every now and then. Heck let’s be honest. After a long stressful day, I love to sit and relax with a delicious cocktail. A little more honesty, the day doesn’t have to be that stressful for me to look forward to a cocktail. Yet, I am too busy most of the time to make a special trip to the store for a forgotten or much needed item. I make do with what I have in my kitchen. That being said I have peeled a tangerine rind into a fancy curl so the first drink looked spectacular. Find a balance that makes you happy.
I have a few rules for cocktail making.
1. Fruit is your friend. Let’s not get scurvy.
2. Too much of anything is a bad thing. Moderation is key. I may think that I am a rockstar but the next morning I feel the way Keith Richard looks. ( a shriveled prune)
3. Invite a friend or loved one over to enjoy your creation and raise a toast to health and happiness.
4. Give your drink a name. Preferably not one that sounds like a frat house drink..
