I've been gone so long, and it's not because I don't love it here. It's because I've been so busy working, I'll upload some pictures I've taken recently over at NICORA, to show evidence to my busy-ness, you'll like them. I think/hope. <3 Anyway, like a million years ago I had a conversation with the good folks over a Tito's Vodka about all of the good they're up to rescuing dogs and the like, and as a crazy dog lady myself, I, uh, was pretty sold before even trying the vodka. To be honest, vodka isn't exactly my drink of choice, but I really loved this one, super smooth, small-batch, homemade-style, and no perceptible, infamous vodka aftertaste, which when it comes to vodka I didn't realize was optional. Someone should've told me in college (I couldn't afford anything in college, so never mind).
I made something with berries! I know its fall and pumpkins and spice, but that's not really my thing. So I made this Rose Berry Vodka Cocktail instead, and it's magical, not seasonal, but definitely lovely.
Muddle berries in vodka, and strain
Pour vodka over ice, half in each glass
Add approximately six ounces of lemonade to each
Garnish - optional
Do yourself a favor and peruse the adorable dogs of Tito's. I know my dogs have been enjoying their Tito's swag. They've already muddied a few squeaky toys. I'll grab some shots of how cute they are, one of these days.
