Dining with the Bloggers - May 18th
An EASY one this week - beverages! At least that was what Cathy claimed it would be, when she suggested it a while back.
Well, and then not so much so! Not because of the theme though, but because this last week has been more than usually hectic for me, and while I knew exactly what I wanted to make, I haven't done it. Yet.
Hang on one second...
Wait, is it okay to mix alcohol with antihistamines?;-)
I love reading The Food Whore's blog - she doesn't put up a lot of recipes, but her gossiping posts more than make up for it, and I love - love - love her bitchy-ness! I often cry from laughing reading it, and am amazed at some of her stories! Seriously - who would do this?!
The Lemon Drop Martini is a drink she's written about a couple of times, so when she revealed the ingredients a couple of months ago, it was diligently bookmarked and definitely comes in handy here on a icky cold May evening where I needed a little pick-me-up. Studying too much pathology will do that to you! It works, and I love it! Used regular vodka and a homemade sugar syrup and did put both hands on the shaker - I am under the influence of antihistamines, afterall!
Cathy's returned from Sicily and gone the lemon way too - looks yummy to me!
