3 of these are extra large eggs… One is M-EGG-A! Mumfry is a bit of an overachiever!
Cucumber Ricky – gin, mint, cucumber, lime juice, ginger beer.
Ellen made this one but, apparently, she could not be bothered to post it. Like all of the cocktails so far, it looks delicious.
Em: I “like” the way our pics go sideways…
W: They are only sideways on the phone version. I haven’t figured out how to change that!
Dammit – they are sideways on the iPad too!
Mid-winter marg. – tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, grapefruit juice, chile salt.
Em made this one but apparently couldn’t be bothered to post it.
Flat Ditch – dark run, lime juice, fresh ginger, ginger beer.
Doesn’t look very exciting here, I probably could have garnished it better, but it was tasty. It’s like a Dark and Stormy with extra ginger. I like ginger as much as I like good New Haven southern hospitality… a lot. (thx Dumb and Dumber!)
I think this is the one Ellen said she did not enjoy quite so much, yes…?
Minus the rhubarb! I do the best I can. Rhubarb is not something that I usually keep in stock.
Down Easter – bourbon, apple cider syrup, lemon juice
I think this is my new fav. Especially since I now have a little pitcher of apple cider syrup in my fridge… forever at the ready! It is a dangerous one though – could easily down one after another. I limit myself to 1 (ok, maybe 2) at a sitting.
Blackberry Fence Hopper – blackberries, honey, lemon juice, vodka, seltzer
Blackberries were on sale yesterday so I made this delicious one last night.
When we added the seltzer it made this weird foam on the top that wouldn’t go away. I mean, it went away when we drank it, of course. Otherwise, thumbs up.
Em: I like this one too. Light, slightly sweet, delicious! Plus I usually have the ingrediants on hand!
With the distinct aroma of skunk in the air, the little paw prints that have appeared in the snow around my front porch, and the recent sightings of our little black and white “friends,” I now declare the 2015 Trapping Season: OPEN!
Marshmallows have been purchased and the innovative design for my new trap tarp is almost complete! (Side note: do you think Chris PRATT will take PART endorse my TRAP TARP?? Seriously! How could he not?!?!!?) I will strike early and often!
I had worried that my Good Samaritan neighbor may have grown weary of his “skunk taxiing” duties over the long winter, but a recent encounter has renewed his interest, and he promised that if I do the catching he will continue to taxi and release! Hooray! There is no way in Hell I would ever carry a trap with a skunk in it, let alone put one in my car!!!! He crazy! Good thing my talents lie in the trapping portion of this operation!
GAME ON SKUNKS, GAME ON!!!

I got one!
I covered, lifted, and walked this guy across the yard to the other side of the fence so my neighbors, the letter carrier and our UPS guy wouldn’t have to face a skunk today!!!
