What’s Wrong With This Picture?


Something is seriously not-quite-right there.

Girl Time

This weekend, I got to spend some time with friends at the lovely Meadow Gardens B & B in Annapolis, MD. When I emailed the proprietress with some logistical questions, I also asked what her policy was on alcohol. When her reply was, “Bring lots”, I knew we were in the right place.

We did not give any of these drinks clever names (but we should!), and I didn’t take photos since they were just in disposable cups, but here’s what we had:

Drink #1:

2 parts Absolut Cilantro-Lime Vodka
1 part home made cilantro simple syrup
3 parts lemonade (we used organic)

Shake with ice & serve. (Yes, this is very similar to the herbalicious recipe posted previously, but this time, I measured.)

Drink #2:

1 part Stoli Blueberi
1 part lemonade (yup, that same organic stuff from Drink #1)

Shake with ice & pour into glass. Sprinkle with 3-4 drops of Bar Keep Organic Lavender Bitters.

And for our afternoon libation, creekside:

Drink #3:

1 part Malibu Coconut Rum
1 part pineapple juice

Normally, I find pineapple juice to be a little cloyingly sweet. But, as it turns out, if you add enough rum, it’s just fine.

And for dessert:

Jack Daniels Honey, neat

Always a perfect night cap.

So it’s getting warmer all the time here at the P & P Drinking Company, and you know that means that our thoughts are turning toward beverages best enjoyed on the veranda. (So very Gatsby of us!)

Lately, we’ve been leaning toward herbalicious cocktails. There was the Figenza fig vodka (oh yes, figgy vodka) with clove-cardmom simple syrup, club soda, and a few drops of bitters. Last weekend, it was the Absolut cilantro vodka with home-made cilantro simple syrup, lemonade, and lemon seltzer.

There’s nothing wrong with adding a little savory to your cocktails.

Trust us on this.
