Between the Sheets - my favourite cocktail!
1 oz Bacardi rum
1/2 oz Cognac (brandy for the cheapskates)
3 oz Cointreau (or orange-flavoured liqueur)
1/2 oz lemon juice
Combine in shaker with ice. Strain and serve in cocktail glass.
It's been awhile between drinks actually - mainly because my doctor had a chat with me...apparently my Blood Pressure ain't what it should be for a young whipper snapper (schnapper?) like myself. It seems that because I had toxemia with my last baby, I am now in a high risk group for blood pressure problems "later in lfe". Oops. Oh well, c'est la guerre right? Wrong. Dr says "eat better, drink less, exercise more"...Time for a new doctor methinks... (Dr Who??Oooh I feel better already, and such wonderful legs!!)
So, bearing that in mind we had a good friends 50th birthday party dinner to attend last night. I was the sober driver. (Yes, me!! I am a fast learner) We went to Tim's favourite Thai place for a meal. Great stuff. The chilli is still working it's magic on me today (I suspect no further explanation is necessary - or wanted?). We had a wonderful evening, had to scurry off early as the babysitter had an early start -at what point will the 13 year old object to a babysitter being called a babysitter??
I feel "hippy happy" today. Sorry.
