Are you dying to know why I won't be home for meals this week? Of course you are(n't). Well...my family is coming to town! How exciting is that? My mom, uncle, aunt, and three cousins will be making their way into Boston tomorrow for a few days of exploration, food, and fun before we all head to New York City for the weekend. And I'm so excited. I love having visitors in town.
So, instead of a Meal plan for the week I'm going to share one of my new favorite cocktails with you. And it's unbelievably simple. I'm almost a little embarrassed that I'm putting up a "recipe" for it because it's really not necessary. But let's play pretend and act like it's absolutely necessary, okay? Thanks.
It's called a Dark and Stormy. But I made mine with Light Rum...making it a Light and Stormy...and it was still delicious so don't feel stifled by the whole "dark rum" thing. It's perfect for a hot summer day so I suggest you call in sick to work, make yourself a cocktail, and head to the pool. You need a day off, right?
