Snow means lots of things in my book.
Today, it meant that I got to watch as the powdery stuff fell from the sky and covered the ground while I met with
12 11 students in a row without a break. It meant that as I finished meeting with those students (happily and filled with coffee! Bottomless cups at Arsaga's are awesome!!), I got to hear others tell me that the university closed at 2, which meant that I didn't have to work my tutoring shift.
Which meant that I worked my tutoring shift remotely (online appointments) on my new sofa with the cat in my lap instead.
Snow also means doing fun things. Like cooking dinner and drinking wine/cocktails and having friends over. Unfortunately, I no longer live within walking distance (as in, all my friends live in the same apartment complex--Duckpond FOREVER), so we all had to pretend like we were hanging out together, which meant making cocktails and texting each other about what we were eating and drinking.
All I know is that this Lillet cocktail is delicious, and I am sad that I could not share them with other people (besides L, who was happy to drink it). But I can share them with you, here. And if you came over, I would mix you a Snow Cocktail and try to convince you to walk with us as snow swirls around our slightly inebriated selves.
- 4 oz. Lillet (Rose)
- 4 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
- 2 oz. gin
Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until well chilled. Pour into two glasses and sip while waiting for the snow to fall so that you can go on a snow walk, as is tradition when it snows at night.
