sewing and drinking, but not at once
Today I actually made two things, one of which was rather involved. I made a skirt out of two old t-shirts from my massive stash of old t-shirts that need to get turned into things. The sleeves of one shirt became pockets for the skirt, although they’re not deep enough to be terribly excellent pockets. It’s possible that the next thing I make will be a tutorial for making this thing:
To celebrate finishing the sewing of this skirt (because actually I do not really like sewing, although I feel very accomplished when I do it; I would rather be knitting, because I have never broken a knitting needle or caused one to smell like it was emitting smoke), I made myself a fancy drink using things from my burgeoning liquor cabinet and my pathetic refrigerator. The drink actually turned out to be delicious, so here is how you make it, if you happen to have the same strange assortment of booze in your home that I have in mine:
- 2 oz. Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
- 1 oz. gin (I used Leopold’s that someone gifted me but use whatever you have that does not taste like paint thinner)
- 1/2 oz. lemon juice
- 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Stir with ice and then I would tell you to strain it into a glass and garnish it with some stuff (a sprig of rosemary, maybe?) if I was that fancy, but I’m not that fancy, so just stir that stuff up and drink it in your face.
