Lake time

We are spending the next two weeks at our cabin ...Emma Lake in Saskatchewan....

It is beautiful up here, and so peaceful. The sunsets are ALWAYS perfect!

And yes, I have a sewing machine up here too.! It is my Pfaff. I love it for piecing, but not for FMQ though. It is a great machine for sewing clothing, which I have used it mostly for.

But, even though I have brought lots of fabric and ideas with me, now is a time to relax....and what better way to relax than the perfect Lemon Drop Martini (made by my sweet husband.....of course he would prefer a scotch !!)

1 and 1/2 oz. Vodka
3/4 oz. Triple Sec.
2 tsp. Bakers sugar (extra fine sugar)
1-1/2 Tbsp. Concentrated lemon juice( or freshly squeezed)
Shake over ice cubes

Coat rim of Martina glass by rubbing the rim with lemon rind ( or lemon juice) and then dip in a saucer of sugar.

Pour and enjoy !!!

WARNING!! This is dangerous.. : )  do not attempt to operate heavy equipment or a sewing machine, rotary cutter, or an embroidery needle while drinking this!
