(PS – A week later, the snow completely covers the patio furniture and is up to the window.)
(PSS – Three weeks later, my back has about had enough of the daily shoveling. The driveway get longer and longer. I’m pretty sure it stretches for at least 3 blocks, now. Running out of places to put the snow…)
(PSSS – Six weeks later, the snow is still there. Why, yes, I do think I’ll have another Toddy. We’ve probably added at least another foot or two. However, spring is just around the corner. I can feel it in the air. We had some melting yesterday: our first 40F degree day since mid-December. Although, last night dropped below zero again, I
think hope the deep freeze temperatures are mostly behind us.)
A Winter Remedy
2 oz Whiskey
1/4 oz Lemon Juice
2 tsp Demerara Sugar
Lemon Peel studded with 4-6 Cloves
Add the sugar to a mug. Fill half way with the boiling water. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the studded lemon peel garnish and stir it around a bit. Next pour in the lemon juice and whiskey. Stir a final time. Enjoy.
Warding off the cold one toddy at a time.
Simple and delicious.
