I got up very early on Monday morning and drove to Costco before their doors opened in the hopes of arriving before the crowd did. It seems that everyone else had the same idea. What was I thinking? Eleven days before Xmas! It was an adventure to say the least.
Fortunately, the rest of my day ran smoothly. And by the time evening rolled around, I was ready for a fun dinner with my friend. I decided to be adventurous, shake things up a little so to speak and have a Cosmopolitan which I have never tried! I’m not a fan of mixed or sweet drinks, especially when it involves vodka. But this cocktail was quite interesting. It was just the right balance of not being overly sweet or tart. It is made with vodka, cranberry juice, Triple Sec and lime juice. Of course, after having one of these, I declined on having any wine. So I sipped on water with my dinner!
It is a beautiful but blustery day and I have much to do!
Yesterday was another series of juggling and balancing acts. So, I was very happy to meet a friend at the end of the day to wind down, have a drink and laugh a little.
Perhaps it was the warm weather or my mood, but I felt like ordering something more festive than my usual “go to” martini. I ended up drinking a Ginger Margarita. Wow! It was delicious. It is made with Sauza Tres Generaciones Anejo Tequila, Cointreau and Ginger-Lime Syrup. Sometimes it’s good for the soul to shake things up a little. It certainly brightened my spirits!
I’m off to tackle another day. I hope yours is a good one!
