The grocery store delivered and now we have fresh mint! So, to celebrate I made us some French Pearls (gin, mint, simple syrup and Pernod). I still am a little too violent with my muddling as you can see from the flecks of mint, but I am working hard to improve. Little by little, practice makes perfect. Of course this will only last as long as my supply of lemon and lime juice lasts. Remember all that powdered lemon and lime peel, well; what did you think that I did with the juice? I froze it into nice little usable portions that all melted into one usable portion on the way over here.
On the downside, the grocery store sent us cilantro instead of parsley, and flat water instead of Pelligrino. The very nice customer service representative explained that most people don’t really know the difference. I kid you not.
And here’s the morning mountain update: We woke up to some nice icicles, it’s stopped snowing although there is more in the forecast for later today and tomorrow. The powder skiing yesterday was outrageous, face shots, over the head plumes, yeah, it was that good.
