It's just too hot....
I'm melting. I'm not cooking...anything...I feel like I am in the oven myself. Glancing through cookbooks, flipping through pages trying to be inspired, and all I can manage to view are recipes for libations. Must be a sign.
2 tablespoons simple syrup or to taste (recipe follows)
3/4 oz. Absolut Kurant vodka
3/4 oz. Absolut Citron vodka
a splash Key Lime juice or regular fresh lime juice
a splash chilled Cranberry Juice
a splash chilled Sprite
In a chilled, tall glass filled with ice, stir together all ingredients.
(makes about 2 cups)
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups water
In a small saucepan bring sugar and water to a boil, stirring and boil until sugar is completely dissovled. Cool syrup.
**cooled syrup keeps, covered and chilled, 2 weeks.
