|It’s HOT and It’s Happy Hour,
My graduating class from Lahser High School is celebrating our 25th year high school reunion this fall (GULP!), and I was asked by the reunion committee to produce a video invite for the party (NO Pressure). Since I am most comfortable in front of the camera in my kitchen whipping up plants into yummilicious things to eat and drink, I decided to include a cocktail recipe as part of the invite so that hopefully, everyone could enjoy cool drink in this summer’s heat.
Whether you are a LHS ’87 alum or not try this thirst quenching beverage the next time it’s happy hour at your house! Click “play” on the video player below.
My husband, Steve, and I had drinks like this at Pure Food and Wine in NYC years ago. We loved them so much (actually a little too much, as these easy-to-drink darlings made running in a Central Park race the next morning a bit challenging), and we have been making it as a summer cocktail ever since. Not sure if this is the exact recipe but regardless it’s pretty darn good anyway.
We make ours in quart Ball jars as our post gardening-all-day treat. Then we sit outside with dirt under our nails and up our noses and celebrate finally being done working. And, that’s one heck of a “Happy Hour” at our house.
