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.
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.
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.
