Mellow Sunday

Today was the most mellow, lazy, ridiculously slow day E-V-E-R. I was pooped from working on Saturday, and woke up this morning feeling unmotivated. Sometime around 3 PM, I started thinking about feeding myself, but all I had the energy for was a fabulous cocktail that I am for SURE going to make again. Here it is, my friends.

The Mellow Sunday

Juice from 1 1/2 lemons


Simple Syrup*


1) Squeeze lemons and set juice aside.

2) Make simple syrup by boiling 1 cup of water with 1 cup of raw sugar until sugar is dissolved. This drink only tastes like it’s supposed to if you use raw sugar, not white. Otherwise it’s just, you know, lemonade with vodka 🙂

3) Allow simple syrup to cool until it’s room temp. I threw mine in the fridge in the pot for about 10 minutes.

4) Put ice in glass. Pour in lemon juice, then simple syrup, then a shot of grappa or vodka. YUM.

Enjoy the mellowest of all days of the week.
