Its Friday. I’m still sick. Definitely feeling a bit better today, although I’m not sure I’m going to enjoy this weekend as much as I would like. At least I don’t have to feel guilty about not being able to work for 2 days! In the spirit of the weekend (and maybe a bit of wishful thinking) I decided to make this yummy sounding citrus vodka that I read about on Top Chef Master, Marcus Samuelsson’s website. He called it an “an old swedish tradition called Aquavit” I call it awesome! Ok, it takes two weeks to steep, but I can’t imagine it being bad! My favorite cocktail of all time is citrus vodka with diet ginger ale, so I’m really excited about going artisanal on it (sort of)! Check out the full recipe HERE.
I just used a variety of fruits I found at Henry’s.
I’m pretty sure that if this works out, then you can probably flavor vodka with anything! Excited to see what happens AND to enjoy a few cocktails on Superbowl Sunday! I hope you all have a kleenex free weekend! Send me some good “feel better” vibes!
