You know by now I love mail - especially fun mail. This little beauty arrived today: Remedy Quarterly. I was immediately sucked into the incredible writing, pausing to read one article after another, standing in my doorway. My daughter thought this was pretty fantastic as well, since technically we were inching past nap time.
This is mine.
Remember this photo? Yep. Kickapoo Juice, for the Remedy Quarterly article.
Happy Hour recipe for a happy Friday? Ok! Personally I think it helps to know the story behind the recipe but until you can get your hands on a copy I'll give you the Redux version to tide you over.
If you want to make them ahead try this cleaver little trick: Drinks in a Jar!
Kickapoo Juice (or Martini)
1 oz vodka (a shot)
2 oz orange juice
2 oz pineapple juice
1/2 oz pomegranate-cherry juice or cherry juice
1 tsp agave nectar or honey (agave blends a bit better)
For a cocktail/martini style: add a splash of seltzer
For a blended drink or granita: add ice and blend in the blender.
Happy Friday, happy hour and happy weekend! Cheers!
