3 shots out of 5
All I've been hearing in this house today is "Only 2 more days of school Mom. Only 2 more days left!!" The buzz of summer vacation has most definitely hit this house and will probably explode come Friday afternoon. I have to say, I'm pretty excited about it too.
I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5. I got tonight's cocktail comes from Jan. Thank You Jan for "The Skirt". I am in "almost" total agreeance with you Jan on the rating of this cocktail. Jan gave it a 3.5 and I gave it a 3! Jan had omitted the sugar completely from her recipe and I had downsized it quite a bit. All in all we made just about the same cocktail. I have never really had a taste for Brandy, but in tonight's cocktail I do not mind it at all!! The lemon juice in the cocktail adds a good flavor to it as well.
Check out today's run to the liquor store. I just couldn't help myself with the "Little Guys"!!
Here is the recipe for The Skirt:
- 2 oz brandy
- 1 oz triple sec (I used cointreau)
- 1 oz sweet & sour mix
- 1 oz sugar (which seems like A LOT of sugar, so I only added 1/2 tsp.)
- 1 tsp lemon juice
In a short glass, add ice, brandy, triple sec (or cointreau), sweet & sour mix, sugar and lemon juice. Stir up all of your ingredients really well and enjoy!!
