Easter Cocktail

The week leading up to Easter and now a couple of days 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’s car problems – are 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 a 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!
