We Are Almost There

It has been my mantra all week.

I am not sure if it is the less than stellar weather or the fact that my hubby has been traveling a lot lately but I have really been “feeling” every minute of every day like a heavy weight on my shoulders.

The weekend is a welcome reprieve and with that I MUST share a cool beverage to kick it off and melt away the stress of the week.

Try this chilly bevy or maybe one of these versions from Epicurious.



2oz Cachaca

1 Lime, thinly sliced 

1-2 tsp sugar (I like mine a little sweet so I use 2)

Use a low-ball glass.

Cut the lime into very thin slices and put in the glass.

Add sugar.

Muddle the lime and sugar together until they are well mixed.

Fill the glass with crushed ice.

Add Cachaca.

Stir (or shake if you have some aggression and a strong like for something cold – I like to get fancy and use my shaker).

Add ice – if needed.


Lime and Glass




Signature as an element


  1. Cheers! That looks refreshing and soul soothing.
