Honeydew


Happy Friday!  What a week........what......a.......week.  Every day seems to have been insane and filled with stuff to do.  Starting Tuesday of this week my remaining 3 children that have been home, started school!  Yeay!!  Now I have 3 children in school 5 days a week (one of which is only a half day since she's in kindergarten) and our fourth child goes to preschool 2 days a week for a few hours.  I officially have no children in the house for 5 hours and 40 minutes a week.  Yes...I counted.  When you have 4 kids, you count those things.......trust me! 

Tonight is opening night for soccer which our oldest daughter (5yo) is SUPERDY DUPERDY excited about.  Then she has her first official soccer game tomorrow morning.....more excitement.  Our oldest has another baseball tourney this weekend as well, which means it will be another busy weekend.

Wait did I mention that this weekend marks our first official game of the season for our SF 49ers??  Oh, well it is!  Plus we are playing the Cowboys......which makes it fun because good friends of ours are......gasp......Cowboy fans!  Rivalry, smack talking, bragging rights, you know how those games go.  Go Niners!!

Anyways, onto today's cocktail!  I saw a post today of 13 vodka shots you actually want to take.  Sounded promising.  I chose a couple and decided on this one today.  I mixed it up, strained it and shooted it.  Ah, it was OK.  For some reason I could taste the lime juice more then I had hoped for.  I might leave the lime juice out next time and add more melon liqueur.  Either way, it was another day where I took a shot too early.

Here is the recipe for a Honeydew:

  • 1 ounce citrus vodka
  • 1/4 ounce melon liqueur
  • 1/4 ounce honey liqueur
  • 1/4 ounce lime juice
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a shot glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Hope you all had a good week.  Enjoy your weekend!!  Remember (at least in this house), it's pizza and beer Friday!!

Cheers!!
