Something exciting happened this cold, blustery spring weekend…
The 2012 Spring Cocktail was tested and approved as the signature Not Quite Gourmet cocktail of this season.
A few splashes of sake, a few dashes of cucumber juice, splash of lime, and a dash of simple syrup are added to a shaker filled with ice. I had a cinnamon clove syrup on hand for this cocktail. Shake it up! Pour it out and enjoy!
Have a dinner party! We did and my job the entire night was to make this cocktail. You see, I was also demoted in my kitchen rank. I became the sous chef – I had the honor of carrying out such tasks as segmenting oranges, washing and drying lettuce, dishes and taste testing. What a deal! And dinner?
Sweet Z was the chef of the evening. He effortlessly threw things together in a cool, calm and collected manner. I admired those qualities as I was sipping my sake cucumber cocktail. Moments like these are time well spent!
