Wouldn't you want to do that too if it looked like this outside?
I've resisted the lure of the sofa and the oh-so-warm duvet all day long. I've been a good girl working at my computer. I'm now about to cook dinner for everyone (which, in my house tonight, means four people). In fact, I've been a good girl all week long and now that the weekend is FINALLY here, I think that merits a drink.
Because it's so cold and dark outside, I think something warming is in order. I found this recipe on Martha Stewart's website, tweaked it a little to suit my mood and the contents of my fruit bowl/alcohol cabinet and created this:
Drinky poos, darling!
It's ever so easy to make.
Here's how I did it:
1 cup(approx 250ml) of cider
1/4 cup measure of whiskey
I juiced the pears (and made approximately the same amount of pear juice as cider).
I added this to the cider, then poured in the whiskey.
(If you don't have a juicer, you could just buy pear juice - as Martha Stewart recommends in her recipe.)
It's a little bit early but it's been a long week. I'm going to light the fire, curl up on the sofa and enjoy this deliciously fruity drink with a kick before everyone comes home. Cheers!
Addendum: when my boyfriend came home, I made him one of these. He thought it was a little too weak and added in more whiskey. (Dipso!) You can obviously modify your drink to suit your own taste.
