2 pt Pama

Over Clover

1 jigger 100-proof vodka, chilled
2 small-to-medium fresh sweet basil leaves
4-5 fresh mint leaves
4 oz. chilled lemon-lime soda (diet is fine)
1 small scoop lime sherbet

Place herb leaves in a shaker glass, add vodka, and crush the daylights out of the herbs. I mean, really mash them to smithereens. Allow this mixture to sit as long as you can stand. Add three or four ice cubes (not crushed!) and shake vigorously. Strain over a glass. Add 4 ounces of lemon-lime soda, top with a scoop of lime sherbet. Garnish with fresh, washed clover! (Or anything green you have on hand, but I don’t recommend twisting lime peel over this — it’s too acidic.)

I’ll post the rest of the recipes in a separate entry, so check back soon!

    How much do we love a plethora of drink recipes?!

    This episode was so great, I plugged in the headphones as I was cleaning the house Sunday afternoon and by 10 minutes in, had to pour myself an Absolut Peach martini just to keep up.

    Looking forward to the How Much Do We Love cookbook!

    Keep up the good work you two!

    What a way to start the day! Even though I am sick, tired, had a busy travel and tequila-filled weekend before heading back in to another Crisis week at work, I am so so so happy to receive an honorable mention.
    I had listened to the episode yet, because I was convinced that I would lose, not even be mentioned – and my little boozy heart was going to break.
    All the other drinks you mentioned were so gimmicky and frou-frou, I didn't think my manly cocktail would go over.
    Thank you SO MUCH!
    As for Stirring Blood Orange Bitters, I really can't recommend it highly enough. It's a beatiful thing, not all gross like normal bitters, and it really balances the sweetness of the Cointreau. It was actually the basis of the cocktail, because I found it in a regular mall liquor store south of the Mason-Dixon line. In fact, it was the only Stirrings product they had.
    If you private message me with your address, I'll send some to you – with my compliments.
