PRETTY IN GREEN!


VODKA GIMLET

Now, for the most part, anyone who really knows Cyn knows she enjoys a glass of wine/champagne with dinner. Chardonnay, icy cold, or a new favorite, La Linda Extra Brut, a sparkling wine from Argentina.
BUT...
on occasion, nothing sits quite as well as a Vodka Gimlet!

2 parts vodka ( I use Svedka)
nearly 2 parts sweetened lime juice
Shake till your hands freeze, with lots of ice.
Into icy cold martini glass squeeze 1/4 fresh lime.
With lime remains, rub around rim of glass.
Pour vodka mix into glass.
Sit back and enjoy.
YUM

Side note: I first read about Vodka Gimlets this summer while reading "Julie and Julia", the diary of a gal named Julie Powell, who spent a year cooking her way thru Julia Child's tome, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" , and blogged about it.
Pin It!

I'm not a fan of gimlits but I love comsmopolitans. Since living in France, I crave margaritias. They have them here but they give you a thimbleful and charge a fortune-no chips and salsa either.

Uh, I am rather embarressed to say we are going through vodka here. The remainder of a bottle of Absolut, a small bottle of Pravda and now the Stoli has been opened.

Speaking of vodka, a professor I worked for once brought me a bottle from Russia. Like buttah.

I LOVE gimlets, but haven't had one in years. Should have had one in the U.S.....maybe next time.
I doubt they know how to make them here. I tried to have a Black Russian in England....they put Pepsi in it....
Happy New Year!
