You know what’s awkward? When you’re sitting around your kitchen in your tights and a tank top when the landlord knocks on the door and you say come in not thinking about what you are wearing. Even more awkward when it’s a middle aged, dad landlord.
It’s been a painful start to 2014; I’ve been sick since Christmas fighting bronchitis, and then, some sort of head cold. My body needed rest but I gave it 6-day work weeks and a move. I’m good to myself like that. Plus, I’ve watched the first five seasons of Sons of Anarchy and have become overly attached. It was painful when Opie died. However, I feel like I’m finally on the road to peace and good health. Cocktails always help on these sort of endeavors.
January was a cold month, so it was time for tropical drink; this cocktail was the perfect choice. All the ingredients were easy to find and I have a big bottle of dark rum sitting around from making eggnog. The painkiller was smooth and surprisingly not too sweet. Take yourself on a mini vacation with this cocktail today!
