A Very Happy Hour

Oh dear, those were a bit potent...

As requested, below you will find the recipe for Saturday night's Cosmolitos - a refreshing and, as I said, highly potent summer cocktail.

Dominique and George, thank you again for opening your home to the recently-developed- Tryon-Farm-ritual, Saturday Happy Hour. When Tom and I saw the rain pouring down at 4:30pm we assumed everyone would cancel...not this group. A little rain was not going to dampen our spirit! Great turnout and great fun. Thanks also to those of you who brought munchies.

In the future, someone suggested that we gather in one of the garages if weather is a factor so we can keep up the impromptu spirit and not impose on anyone too greatly. Seems like a good idea.

The ceremonial jug has been passed to next week's cocktail couriers, Dwayne and Ann Waugh (my apologies if I haven't spelled names right but I don't have the list with me). A bit of advice..I filled the jug at least 3 times due to demand.

1 1/2 ounces of white tequila, 3/4 ounce of triple sec, 2 ounces of cranberry juice, juice from 1/2 of a lime, chilled martini glass. Combine the ingredients with ice in a shaker. Shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Clearly Saturday's Cosmolitos were low on presentation but high on spirit. See you next week.

Keep those recipes coming. I'd like to place a special request for the Honolulu punch from last night. Very tasty! Good job, Waugh's.

Also, Joan is up and at 'em again today. Out getting the paper at 8:00 and looking great. Thank God it just turned out to be a bonding experience.

Finally, let the record show the "girls" beat the "boys" (ok we had a ringer in George on the girls team) 5-4 in the intense wiffle ball game that broke out.
