Unexpected leave

Dear Internet,

Today TFBIM had a client wrap up a LOT earlier than expected, so she decided to take the kids to the County Fair (hardly believable that South Beach and a County Fair could be 20 minutes apart, but there you have it).

This has left me with a free afternoon, and I'm going enjoy some potable action.

The drink is a Limoncello Sour.

1 ounce Absolut Citron vodka
1 ounce Limoncello
1 tablespoon superfine sugar
1/2 lemon, freshly juiced
Ice cubes
OPT. Superfine sugar for rimming (oh, shut UP, Badger)
OPT. Twisted peel* of lemon

Put all with dry, cracked ice in a cocktail shaker, and shake as long as your patience will permit. Strain into a stemmed cocktail glass. Repeat as needed.


P.S. The shaker in the picture is my default shaker (which, along with the glasses is part of a Mickey Mouse set I got in WDW. Below is the best one, ever, which is also the one Poppy gave me when I turned 40. It's only fit for use when company arrives.

* I save my peels for making yet more limoncello.

Hey! How come *I* get a "shut up" when YOU'RE the one talking about rimming? Huh?
Joke said…
'cause I know what you're like.

Are you actually cranking Ted Nugent's music to Ted Nugent levels? And is there air-guitar involved?
Joke said…
At the mo' I'm cranking Madness's "Night Boat To Cairo" (live version) at Ted Nugent levels.

So help me, I am thisdamnedclose to taking out my guitar and scaring the squirrels out of the trees.

Rock on,

Joke said…
I could if it had a thumb.

-J., a big fan of the whole prehensile thing

Meyers don't grow so well Down Heah, these are "Amalfi" which are a bit more tart with a thicker peel.

Badger said…
My Meyer lemon tree appears to be doing quite well. And also, STILL no hurricanes. Or rust on our cars.

MsCellania said…
Hey, I said 'prehensile' before you did today. I posted about my toes.

I thought Amalfi was a Coast, or a brand of shoes. The things ya learn!

We make our own Limoncello as well - DIVINE. Chef even made a coffee liqueur at Christmas that defied belief. So very very good.
Joke said…
And....why haven't you availed us of the coffee liqueur recipe?

-J., tapping foot
