Cheers, Readers! This recipe is my own version of my dear friend Greg’s favorite whiskey drink, what he calls a “Back Forty.” Try it for yourself!
For one drink, I juice a half an apple, a full lime, and a half a lemon. Pour the juice into a cocktail shaker over ice. Add an ounce and a half  of whiskey, my favorites are Maker’s Mark or Bulliet, a squeeze of agave nectar, and a dash of orange bitters. Shake, shake, shake…
Cheers!!
It’s such a fun way to incorporate fresh-squeezed juice into your “5-o’clock somewhere” festivities.

Last night we made banana sorbet with Dad’s juicer. It’s just pure frozen banana. Like magic! I added some cinnamon on top for good measure.

From the road trip archives! One of my favorite things about driving through or staying in a new place is checking out the local coffee shops. Here in SoCal, it’s SO difficult to find anywhere other than Starbucks. 
I think my favorite coffee shop that we saw between here and Corvallis was this little drive-thru place called The Human Bean. The girl who made us our drinks was so friendly, and with every cup, you get a coffee bean candy!! So sweet.

I had lunch today at Nordstrom Cafe with some lovely ladies from work and THIS is the strawberry my friend Natalie got in her fruit bowl.  Lots of grapes, and this.  Amazing.
