Lemon Drop Cocktail
My friend, Stephanie, and I went out for cocktails and a tasty meal the other night (I got the mother of all comfort foods... mac + cheese). I love this girl, her sensitivity and honesty. She's just delicate enough in her care for me as a friend while also being straight-forward and firm in her dealings with me. She's a protector and a champion when I lack that for myself. Steph's a keeper but we hardly ever get to hang out anymore. So we made this night a good one to tide us over 'til the next one.
It should be noted that I've been the designated driver when going out with my friends for months... months! I wanted to enjoy a delicious cocktail or two. And, holy man, did I ever. We hit up Lucky's , where they mix the drinks in the shaker at your table (why? to show it's fresh? to be all sassy-like? I don't know.). Anyway, because I'm forever a six year old who most loves sugary sweetness, I got the lemon drop cocktail. And then I ordered another one. And then I was very thankful I didn't have to be the designated driver this time around so I could enjoy my new favorite drink. Want to try it out? Here's a lemon drop recipe. Don't forget the sugar on the rim. Must. have. the. sugar.
Add a bestie and the night is made.
