Your Memorial Day weekend may be brighter and sunnier, but here in Boston it's cold and dreary. However, I've found a few things to make the weekend feel a little happier.
One - Giant Box of Plucky
I've been picking yarns for a thing. Thinking about what colors go with each other, and what weights work in different projects. And arranging them in different lines and piles before deciding who gets to go In The Box. That's kind of pure joy.
Two - Another Drink
I had a few friends over to knit the other night, and decided that I still wanted my warm weather gin. And really, nothing could have gone better with cupcakes and chili and chips than this.
Grapefruit -Rosemary Gin and Tonics
2 oz gin
2 oz grapefruit (about)
4-6 oz tonic
sprig of rosemary
a few juniper berries
slice of lime (I added that later!)
Put the gin and grapefruit juice in a glass over ice. Add tonic and a couple of juniper berries.
Smash rosemary in your hand before adding to glass, spritz lime once into drink and stir.
Add lime slice. And drink.
Here's hoping tomorrow gets sunnier!
