Alright.. it’s time for a little honesty. Most of my recipes and cocktails are made ahead of time so I can have them scheduled for the appropriate day. Yesterday was not one of those times. I woke up thinking I could whip this together and have it up before noon… until I realized we were completely out of ice. While impatiently willing water to freeze faster, I started on another recipe. I didn’t know it right away, but I was working with a faulty waffle iron, that resulted in a batch of soggy and yet somehow also burned waffles, and a destroyed kitchen. Things only continued to go down from there, so I decided to make myself a stiff drink, watch this adorable pig video (Chris P. Bacon! How cute is that?!), and try it again the next day with a fresh outlook. My day so far has been a hell of a lot smoother than yesterday and this cocktail was well worth the wait! Refreshing, tart, sweet, and STRONG! If you had a disaster of a day (or week), kick back and treat yourself to this delightful drink!
