It’s possible we’ve been watching a lot of The Love Bug lately.
At home in Santa Monica
We made roads on the floor with black tape. The little boy picked up my scissors, put his fingers through the handles carefully and snipped the tape. So we got out his scissors and some paper and he snipped quite a lot in between racing his cars around the road as I finished laying it down.
Later, we went cake tasting with Gavin. I have a birthday party coming up, so went we to Sweet Lady Jane to check out their options. The slices were so big, we ended up with leftovers in our fridge. The green one on top is a princess cake.
It’s fruity and tart and mysterious.
To make it, mix together:
- 1 part Zwack
- 6 parts Jack Daniels
- 10 parts citrus juice (two of our favorite combinations are orange and grapefruit or lemon and tangerine)
- 2 parts simple syrup
Shake with ice.
Pour into a martini glass and add a couple of cherries and some cherry syrup.
