This isn’t a very wintery drink, but when the sun peeked after a wind and rain storm last week, I was inspired to look forward to spring. Yeah, I know, it isn’t even technically winter yet, but a girl can dream, can’t she? So, here’s to a little looking forward to spring cheer. Sit yourself in front of a sunny window, ignore the snow, cold temperatures, dormant garden, and whatever other unpleasantries winter brings to your part, and pretend the baby birds are chirping, the bulbs are in full bloom, and new shoots of grass are green and vibrant in the warm sun.
Note: I’ve made this drink without alcohol, but if you want to spike it, I suggest using Vodka, as it doesn’t impart a lot of flavor. Mix in 2-3 ounces, depending on how big of a glass you’re using. (more…)
