Ahhh, Friday. I love Friday. Not because I don't love going to work during the week, I do, but because I get drink of the week, I sleep in a little on Saturday, I can look forward to coffee tomorrow morning, and I know I can have some time to read through some of my cooking magazines ( I have 5 I haven't looked at yet).
It has been a crazy week with the MIL. My sister in law came up from Anchorage for the weekend so we are officially "off duty" for the weekend. I am going to a CABI party at my friend's house (it is a home clothing party, beautiful clothes, excellent quality, and one of the few options for work clothes in Fairbanks). We have hockey on Saturday, and dinner out at a new restaurant opening in Fairbanks. That, along with all the housework I didn't get done during the week, will make the weekend fly by.
But, I am stopping for a few moments to have a break and a drink. I found a new way to get my "bubble" fix. Sparkling cranberry juice. I love it! Add a splash of lime, some citrus vodka and some pomegranate seeds and you have an awesome drink of the week...I think I'll have two. Cheers!
Citrus Cranberry Fizz
1 oz citrus vodka
1 tsp to 1 Tbsp lime juice, depending on your taste
