We had a very mild summer in southern California this year. We're making up for it this week. The temperature in Los Angeles broke all recorded temperatures. Ever, as in for recorded history. The thermometer stopped working at 113F. It's a bit cooler here, but this morning, when I looked at the predicted high for the day, the outside temperature had already surpassed that by two degrees and it was only 7 o'clock in the morning. I went in search of autumnal balm and found this photo on Martha Stewart's website. I know she appears to be a bit much from time to time, ( do we really need a craft section devoted to our storage solutions? ) but anyone that can make me believe it is really autumn deserves a little bit of slack.
There might be one more summer cocktail post if this thermometer stops working again. In fact, why wait. Maybe it's like a washing your car and rain. If I make it, maybe it will stop being summer.
Nothing like a little berry sorbet, club soda and some pear vodka to say,
