friday on my mind

Ahhh the weekend.  Big sigh then a big cheer!   It's a question so often asked during the week by my little Ruby "Is it the weekend yet?".  Well, now it is and we love it.

This one promises us blue skies, no clouds and temperatures reaching 84 degrees C (29 degrees F).  Whoop Whoop!

A friend is hosting a rather big party on Saturday evening - the acceptances have grown and grown!  So she's delighted that we will be overspilling into the garden to enjoy the warm evening, with Mint Julep's being the cocktail for the night (Kentucky Derby style so I'm told!).  It promised to be a fun evening!  So looking forward.

Mint Julep

4 fresh mint (spearmint preferrably) sprigs
2 1/2 oz Bourbon
1 tsp powdered sugar
2 tsp water

Muddle mint leaves, powdered sugar and water in a glass.
Fill the glass with shaved or crushed ice.
Add Bourbon.
Top with more ice and mint to garnish.
Serve in a traditional silver or pewter cup if you have one
or just an old-fashioned or highball glass.
Pop a straw in.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

UK family and friends - enjoy your long bank holiday weekend too.
