Backyard Pond Sample or Tasty New Cocktail?
G is dreaming of slicing down snowy slopes, and I’m already dreaming of barefoot time … fresh-cut grass, warm rocks, trickling water fountains … and my favorite sorbet, Cucumber Jalapeno. Instead of sorbet, we recreated it this Thursday as a cool green, velvety cocktail. We brought the mixture to our friends’ new place (in a jelly jar, yes, and it did raise eyebrows) and asked them to help us name it. As we sipped in their dining room with the bamboo floors and eggplant walls, the name was a natural.
The Happy Hour Toast
To L and S, congratulations on making your place your own. May it always be filled with Cucumber Zen!
