Bon Weekend, Plus Couture Cocktails

I hope you had a wonderful week!  The weekend is upon us and time to relax and have fun.
I plan to have dinner with a girlfriend tomorrow evening and, hopefully, have time for a bike ride or two in the beautiful weather we’re forecast to have.
I love this photo of Paris.  As I mentioned yesterday, I’m missing Paris… as always, but more so this week since it has been 1 year today since our last visit.  We’re looking at our schedule and hope to plan something but in the meantime, this girl is going to dream…
Couture Cocktails
Atty Cocktail
Atty Cocktail–a classic gin-based drink with absinthe and crème de violette
1 1/2 oz gin
3/4 oz dry vermouth
1/2 tsp absinthe
1/2 tsp crème de violette
 lemon peel for garnish 

Combine gin, vermouth, absinthe and crème de violette in a shaker with ice; shake for 5-10 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a lemon peel.

Wishing you a lovely weekend!  I hope it’s beautiful where you are!!
