Well, after several days of beautiful weather, a cold front moved in yesterday afternoon, bringing thunder, lightening and hail. I was going to post the video of the storm I took, but I can’t figure out how to get it off of my phone.
I has me some mad smart phone skillz. Not.
Then I thought I’d post the recipe for the marvelous beef vegetable soup I made a couple of weeks ago – since it’s all COLD again, and there’s a dusting of SNOW on the ground – but it occurred to me that some of you might actually have warm weather and why should I spoil your spring with a winter soup dish?
So, I decided to do something I hadn’t for awhile – let Beloved the Martini Mixologist save the day. I made the usual “Make me something fun” request last weekend, and he handed me this. VERY, VERY good.
serves me, and nobody else but me
2 1/2 shots vodka
1 tablespoon spicy vegetable juice, such as V8
2 or 3 drops Tabasco sauce
1 dash of your favorite barbecue rub
1 inner rib of celery
Place all ingredients except the celery in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well; strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the celery.
