Whooda thought it was possible?

But it is.... Ok, I've made 'em with gin or vodka, I've made em w/ lime, I've made 'em with lemon, I've even made 'em with orange (mmmm). But we have a winner - the Vodka Tonic with lime AND orange.

Now all I need is hot weather again, so I can be properly refreshed by my perfect tonic. It's damn cold again. Not sure what the hell is going on here in NE this summer. Cold, then freaking hot, then cold again. No spring, no 70s, no breaks for us this year!

So anyways, you make it like a regular tonic - 2 oz vodka, ice , take one lime, smush it and get all the juice in the drink, and then add a slpash of OJ. Fill the rest of the glass with tonic water - didn't have fresh oranges, but will do that next time. For now, about 2 oz did the trick. MMMM. If you use small glasses, you might want to use less vodka (or maybe not, depending on what you're going to do the rest of the afternoon (or morning, as who am I to judge??)

Next, what to make with pear nectar? I was given a bottle as a "challenge" - we'll see what we come up with. Still have many limes, but not sure that goes together so well.
lime and pear? Hmm. Stay tuned.

As for knitting, still having knitter's block. Have a few things arriving in the mail, am hoping something will inspire me. Got two swaps last week that are great, but didn't feel like knitting with either yet. In the meantime am doing lots of swatching, waiting for my crochet book to arrive, and trying out different tank top yarn candidates - but gave the finished Booga to my friend, who loved it (that always feels so good! )

Should have edited it clockwise before posting, but hey, you can see what it looks like just fine - tilt your head. Or make a vodka tonic, it might look just fine....
