After more than one year of understaffed chaos, I’m finally getting a new co-worker. My team has been down a man since April 2011 and all of us were getting burnt out. Break out the aloe vera kiddies because relief is on the way!
And since it is way too hot in Cayman to consider cooking, how about a celebratory cocktail?
You will need:
2 oz Grey Goose L’Orange
2 tsp Sugar
Juice from 1 lime
Splash of soda water
Dash of Angostura Bitters
Mint leaves (stems intact)
- In a tall glass, add lime juice, sugar and mint leaves stems down
- Add a splash of soda water and stir gently
- Push the mint leaf stems down into the bottom
- Add the Grey Goose L’Orange
- Fill with crushed ice and stir again
- Top off with the bitters
If you’re like me and would prefer a non-alcoholic version, cut the sugar by half and use Ginger Ale instead of the vodka 🙂
By the way, I want to say a huge thanks to Erin over at Dinners, Dishes and Desserts for sharing some Swanky love on her site earlier this week. And for those who had questions about soursop, wikipedia as a great description of its taste: Its flavor has been described as a combination of strawberry and pineapple with sour citrus flavor notes contrasting with an underlying creamy flavor reminiscent of coconut or banana.
