While at the Corner House restaurant in Sandwich, NH, (which, by the way, is so quaint I almost died) I had a St. Germain cocktail which is a classic, but this one was loaded with lemons and it provided a much needed pick-me up.
Lord, champagne. The boy and I are planning on spending our 4th of July sprawled on a picnic blanket drinking it and eating sushi.
Because what's more American than that?
Speaking of lemons, here are a few recipes for citrus-y, summer-y drinks sent to me by a man that has been with the love of his life for 30 years who can now marry him in their home state. I was in NH surrounded by wooden roosters and plaid pillows tearing up when I heard.
Wooden cocks, plaid and gay marriage. What's more American than that?
