Welcome to summer! I hope your Friday is excellent!
So, now that THE DARK STAR is out I can relax and enjoy work on the third in the series. I have four whole months of non promotion space here on the blog, so I thought why not get back to some posts Wishing For Horses style?
How about some recipes, book reviews, travel/packing, and craft projects? I could also dust off and post more of the Meet a Blogger series? Yeah?
To start let me share a very special summer time recipe! This comes from my husband, it’s our favorite cocktail.
JEFREY’S MINT GIMLET
2oz. Gin (we like Tanqueray Ten)
1.5oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1oz. Simple Syrup (more or less to taste)
3-4 leaves of Fresh Mint
Fill a cocktail shaker 2/3 full with ice and add measured ingredients.
Shake until very cold about 30-45 seconds.
Pour into martini glasses through a small strainer
Garnish with a single mint leaf.
Enjoy on the porch during a warm summer evening!
