this week’s cocktail is a version of last week’s blueberry french 75, only it’s made with fresh raspberries and lime juice (instead of blueberries and lemon juice.)
1/2 fresh squeezed lime
1 oz gin
a little sugar
prosecco or cava or champagne
muddle the raspberries and sugar in a shaker. add the gin and lime juice. throw a few ice cubes in to chill and shake gently. strain into a cocktail glass and top with your choice of bubbly (i used prosecco.) makes 1. and i’m tellin’ ya, one knocks me for a loop.
i went to the sundays only flea market this past weekend for inspiration purposes, as i have been uninspired as of late. i haven’t crafted anything in what seems like forEVER. unfortunately, i didn’t get much inspiration. i did, however, find a set of two handmade vintage curtain panels with one valance in a great black and white and gray triangles fabric for $3.
why are you hanging curtains when you’re supposed to be packing up and moving, you ask? cuz i’m an idiot.
i also bought these:
they’re a tad danish-y and a tad teak-y, but then again, somethin’ ain’t quite right about them, either.
the price was right.
the sun has finally come out after a week of blech. i’ll be fighting the
paparazzi glare with my flea market 70s foster grants. they’re GIGANTIC. and PERFECT.
