Easter Cocktail

The week leading up to Easter and now the couple of day since have been wrought with angst and issues.

What sort of issues?

tow away

  1. Missing cats (found after 4+ hours of searching)
  1. Connor’s 1:30 AM backed-up kitchen sink – which led to apartment flooding, stinking, and day-long cleanup (not his fault, came from the apartments above him)backed up
  1. Connor car problems – still ongoing … now into day eight
  1. Quadruple water bills at our house (obviously a leak, but not one that has yet been found)water meter
  1. Ongoing care for parent who had surgery and a subsequent fall


With all that and the fact that I gave up alcohol for lent, it should come as no surprise that the first recipe I’m going to share from our Easter dinner is a cocktail recipe!
