Rye Whisky, and Vermouth.  I just made this for my hubby to drink by the pool while watching our crazy Canadian kids go in for a swim.  It was 25 degrees out which is perfect Canadian weather for a swim.

Day 220 - Leisure


Leisure is a form of silence, not noiselessness.  It is the silence of contemplation such as occurs when we let our minds rest of a rosebud.

Week 32 - 52 Weeks of Cocktails - Berry Beauty

Ice, vodka, lemonade, raspberry and cranberry juice.   This was quite refreshing.   Eric was cutting grass when I gave this to him for a break.   He told me he could get used to this cocktail challenge.
