Rosemerry Christmas

Several years ago Mat and I stumbled upon this simple and delicious holiday cocktail.  By request, the recipe is below.
 Rosemerry Christmas 

 Boil 1 cup of water
add 1 cup of sugar and
2 sprigs of fresh Rosemary

simmer until the sugar dissolves

let the syrup cool then remove the Rosemary

In a glass (old-fashioned is a good size)
add ice
pour 1 shot of Vodka 
2 drops of Orange extract
1-2 Tablespoons of syrup
top with Seltzer or Club Soda (aka Bubble Water)

adjust any element to your preference

and enjoy!!

One little cupcake for a sweet little girl!

 Who wanted to touch the candle more than blow it out...

...what is this?

More fun to play with than eat!

...and then icing on the camera lens.

After a bath she proved that the box is still more fun than the actual toy.



Can  you believe it?

Time flies.. and attends 4th grade, and wears size 7 shoes!
(and is still my baby)
