Just a little preview of next week's sweater. As you may remember, the buttons were going to be either these lemon ones, or a couple of bright oranges. Lemon won.
Later today, I'll be playing with the Bombay Sapphire itself and edit this post to give you a sneak peek drink to go with the sneak peek photo, so tune back in anytime after beer thirty and have your glass at the ready.
Hi again. I decided to experiment a little with blue here.
2 dashes of orange bitters
And it was a bad idea. Sipping that thing gave me a shudder that included a left eye twitch. Unfortunately, I don't think Curacao has any redeeming qualities beyond the food coloring property of bright blue. The only good thing about the Crystal Slipper is that it matches the blue yarn perfectly. Don't drink it.
However, the second cocktail was much better and my eyes have remained twitch free.
2 oz gin
juice of 1/2 lemon
4 oz ginger ale
This one's lemony and refreshing (like my buttons).
