seetheworld and others..

It's Friday, and in the spirit of the weekend, I thought I'd share this:

Berry Blast

2 c. chilled vodka
8 raspberries
1 sprig tarragon
1 c. chilled o.j.
1 c. chilled cranberry juice
1/2 c. chilled grapefruit juice
1/2 c. orange flavored liqueur
Orange slices for garnish

In 2 cup glass combine vodka, raspberries and tarragon. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Discard tarragon sprig; reserve raspberries. In large pitcher combine vodka, juices and liqueur.
To serve, place one raspberry in each ice-filled glass: top with vodka mixture. Garnish with orange slice.

Celebrate the summer. Gas prices have dropped to $2.95 here, and L'il Kim has finally been released from the Big House.
cheers, J.

Faina~ I heisted the recipe from a magazine. Now if your going to get all huffy with someone who has 1/4 Russian blood, I will gladly mud wrestle you at the next big pow wow.
I prefer not to dilute either, btw!

The local wine shop has free tastings every weekend and they served this a few weeks ago. WARNING - You can't taste the alcohol in it.

Which, with hard liquor, is double trouble for me, kybourbon. Unlike beer or wine, it sneaks up on me. One moment I don't feel a thing, next moment I'm totally bombed

Haven't tried it yet but The Barefoot Contessa made this a few weeks ago...
sounds really yummy for a hot night...

Lemon Drop Cocktail (aka lemonade??)

2 cups frozen vodka
1/2 c fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 c superfine sugar
1 lemon, thinly sliced
ice

Combine the vodka, lemon juice, and sugar and pour into a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour into martini glasses and garnish with lemon slices.

We don't own a shaker or martini glasses so most likely will substitue with a ziploc plastic container and a margarita glass!

I'm lovin' this thread! Like my psycho spin class gal demands GIMME MORE!!

Also, between super sips, a simple yes or no to my VIP poll, unkay?

1. Do you believe aliens actually landed at area 51? y.n.

2. We know that drinking at high altitudes makes one more tipsy. What about space? Even more, if you are a rocket scientist, please elaborate. So, more drunk? y. n.

3. Star Jones, Barbara Walters. Who's really telling the truth? A. Star B. Babs

thanks, and I'll expect some cooperation. Your reward will be a naughty joke from Australia or another drink ress-i-pee. J.
