My birthday drink
My birthday is January 1st and this year I celebrated in my usual fashion, quietly tucked into a snow-kissed cabin in the Catskills. My friend Kerry created this cocktail in honor of my aging self and I think its the cat’s meow. I’ve become somewhat obsessed with the elderflower liquor, St. Germain ( www.stgermain.fr), and this drink features it and my other liquid passion, tequila. Its delightfully tasty and a nice dose of vitamin C to keep your immune system boosted during those chilly winter nights.
