Very, very tired

Ugh. I just managed to slog my way through a previously promised Christmas ornament crafting session with Sister while the baby slept. Now I'm running her bath and taking a moment to blog. I am truly exhausted at this point after several nights in a row of extremely interrupted sleep. Dinner is not yet started. There is research on Poland plus a diorama to begin construction of for Sister's second grade class. Thankfully, Husband will be home shortly to help Sister navigate the vast wasteland that is Google so I won't have to.

In the meantime, will a delicious cocktail make me cheerful or just sleepy? Both, I think, but it would be nice to be cheerful at least once today.

Best Gin Fizz Ever

2 oz gin
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/4 oz Cointreau or triple sec
1/2 oz simple syrup
2-3 oz club soda

Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all the ingredients except club soda. Shake to chill and blend. Pour into a highball glass over ice and top with club soda. Give it a quick stir and drink it, woman, drink it.

Hi, NJG! I'm sorry to hear that you're sick. But yes, these recipes will remain up on my blog. In fact, one of these days I'll get around to linking to them in the margin so that you won't have to search for them. Hope you feel better soon, m'dear!
