I’m a heading out for a bit. Mike and I are going to meet up with a few friends for cocktails. My favorite lately have been watermelon kamikaze. They are simple and way to good. The basic Kamikaze comes down to 1/3 Vodka, 1/3 Triple Sec, and 1/3 Lime Juice. Some places substitute lime juice for muddles limes. I like the muddled version better. Speaking of alcohol, I saw a biography of Liza Minelli last night. She seems like such a fun person. She was describing what alcohol was like for her and why it is a problem. She said that, no I’m paraphrasing, everyone has a cocktail now and again. For some people, they get sleepy, some get a little giddy, for her it made everything right. I have friends with substance problems and this just made everything a lot clearer about how booze affects them. Time to get primped.
