Well, hi there!

This blog is to show to the world the hidden gems of life down south. There'll be a bit of gardening, a bit of cooking, a bit of nature, restaurants, shops, and scenes. I'll be doing some homemaking, some renovating, and some adventuring! And drinking. There will definitely be some drinking. If you like passing a good time, let us show you how we do it!

Come Fly With Me

Come Fly With Me

Today Alan and I ventured to Inglewood Farm for their weekly Saturday market, and what did we discover but a bumper crop of gorgeously juicy Meyer lemons. Tonight before dinner as we were listening to some old Sinatra, we decided to fix something that reminded us of the slightly hazy winter sky and the fresh, floral flavor of that tantalizing citrus.

Combine together in a shaker:

  • 1.5oz Gin
  • 1.5oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4oz Maraschino liqueur
  • 1/2 Creme de Violette Liqueur

Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled coupe glass. Rim glass with a lemon twist and enjoy!
