Yesterday, our alarm went off at 4:15 a.m. We got up, got dressed, packed a lunch, made breakfast, saw that the proper bags were packed with the proper items and drove The Young One to school so he could take a 3-day field trip with the 8th grade to Washington D.C.
We then went into the office – at 5:15 a.m. By noon, we were both like, “Okay, I’ve had enough of this…let’s go home.” But first I made Beloved take me out to lunch and then to the grocery store where I picked out a couple of nice steaks for dinner. Then we went home and watched Milk on DVD (not bad – Sean Penn was certainly very good) and took a nap.
Around 6 or so in the evening, it dawned on us “By golly – we have the entire house to ourselves!!” So as Beloved played solitaire on his laptop and I fed the fish and petted the dog we cavorted wantonly about the house, I asked Beloved to make me a “fun drink.” This is what he came up with, and I must say – it was darn tasty.
serves 2, or me
1 shot of orange/pineapple/banana juice
1/2 shot Cointreau
1 shot vodka
2 shots vanilla vodka
Rim a martini glass with sugar. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice; shake well and strain into glass.
Go “Yuuuummmmm, yuuuuuummmm” while you drink it.
