Cocktail Of The Day?Newsletter | September 17, 2015 | Nik Manojlovich
Question – is leaving two of my sisters up north to enjoy their very own WEEK AT THE COTTAGE a good idea? Their submission for a COCKTAIL OF THE DAY may hold the answer!
My sisters Maria and Dana are up north as I type this. They’re enjoying a well-deserved vacation at the cottage with their wonderful spouses. Driving back to the city yesterday I was a bit concerned wondering what will they do up there without me?
You see, we’re coming off of a VERY productive weekend! We made a delicious Peach and Ginger Jam. We also made a tasty Corn Relish made with fresh produce that they brought all the way from Ontario’s famed Essex County. We even found time to make – and drink – a bunch of thirst quenching cocktails. A good time was had by all!
And then I had to leave.
Last night I received an e-mail from Dana, complete with a stunning photo of her cocktail of the day! If you want to get a sense of what I’m dealing with, take a look at her beautifully staged photo. Dana’s cocktail is pretty straightforward: serve up 8 ounces of lake water on the rocks (yes, those are rocks!) with a low-growing violet garnish!
Yes folks, my sisters are truly embracing the joy that comes with every Weekend at the Cottage, and I LOVE them for it! They’re also poking fun at me and that’s OK too!
PS – Don’t try this recipe! Hug a sister and tell them how much you love them instead!!!
Listening to great music is an important part of every Weekend at the Cottage! I listened to Love On the Rocks – Neil Diamond while laughing at my sister’s e-mail! Visit iTunes to add this classic song to your collection.
