25 Things, 16-17

This was the scene when I cleaned out the fridge recently. Though, in reality, the fridge is usually packed to the gills with fresh foods or recent leftovers–I cook more nights than not, after all, and use very few prepared foods, etc. At least when I’m behaving myself.

17. Todd was afraid I was a bit of a lush before he met me. I’d gotten a bar cart for Christmas, had sipped a glass of wine while in weekend chats and have an extensive liquor “cabinet” but, thankfully, he learned that I go weeks without an adult beverage of any sort and generally stay well under sloshed when I do drink. Generally. There are always exceptions.

Mixology 103

Here’s the text-only version:

Snarky Little Tart

1 Ice Cube
1 oz. [Gordon’s] Gin
.5 oz. Vanilla Cordial (recipe at the link, used spiced rum instead)
1 oz. [DeKuyper] Pomegranate Liqueur
Splash of Club Soda

Swirl it all together in a double-shot or cordial glass. (A martini glass would be fun and fit me, too, but it’s not really a martini so only use those in a pinch 😉
