It's five o'clock here!
Please head over to Beth Fish Reads to see what's on the menu this weekend.
For this last full day of winter, I thought I'd post a cocktail recipe. The brandy is kind of a winter drink. One pictures people in a comfortable library with their brandy, having a light conversation or reading. But the lemon juice zings the drinker into spring which begins around here tomorrow at 7:21 pm.
I posted my Sidecar recipe a couple years ago, and this one is rather a poor man's Sidecar. Brandy instead of cognac, and triple sec rather than Cointreau. It has quite a racy little name.
Between The Sheets
1 part brandy. I used Christian Brothers.
1 part white rum. I used Bacardi.
1 part triple sec. I used Bols.
and the juice of a lemon.
Just the ticket as we sit on the porch, watching the snow melt away, as winter melts into spring.
