lazy and happy

Today I’d planned to post a recipe using the rest of the poblano peppers, but plans changed. We went to a movie and dinner last night so the poblanos will have to wait a day. Instead, how about a lazy Sunday late morning – early afternoon cocktail by the pool? Sounds so much better to me!

Any orange vodka will work here, the Svedka just seems sexier than, say Smirnoff. There’s Absolut Mandarin, Grey Goose L’Orange,  Orange V, Three Olive Orange, Ketel One Oranje, and many more. So pick your own poison, swim up to the pool bar or relax in the whirlpool by the waterfall, and enjoy.

Madras Tropicana Cooler

2 ounces Svedka Clementine vodka
4 ounces cranberry juice
1 ounce Grand Marnier or Triple Sec Liqueur
Juice from 1/2 lime
Orange and lime twists

Pour the vodka, cranberry juice, and Grand Marnier into a tall cocktail glass. Add the lime juice and stir. Fill with ice and garnish with citrus twists.

Being lazy definitely = being happy

After I went to the gym early (with out any family members) I did enjoy the lazy morning in the pool sipping this very tasty cocktail!
