Is it summer yet?

To say I have been uninspired lately by my eating and cooking experiences is a bit of an understatement. Hence the lack of blogging. I think it has something to do with one day wanting to curl up on the couch with a bowl of soup because buckets of rain are being dumped from the sky and the next day wanting an ice cold salad because it is 80 degrees and my air conditioner doesn't work. As soon as I decided to cook a winter meal, the weather changes and I am all thrown off. The result has been bad takeout.

Damn this global warming.

The good news is that the husband isn't uninspired when it comes to cocktails.

Last weekend started off with a mint julep. I will get the exact proportions, but the ingredients are mint, sugar, and bourbon. How can you mess that up?!? The answer is you can't. This was delicious and I love that you don't have to stop drinking bourbon just because it is summer.

When you are outside at a baseball game all day, enjoying the spring/summer weather it is almost impossible to resist the offer of a summer cocktail.

Say hello to Mr. Mint Mojito.

Again, I will get all of the proportions for this one and post soon. But it was as refreshing as it looks.

One other mention - my new summer drink has been elected. The proud winner is a gin and soda with a twist of lime. So good. As much as I tried, the G & T never worked for me - but the soda mellows it out and makes for what I think is a perfect cocktail.

Ok, back to work.
