I’m fairly certain that, your first day back at work after a 3 week vacation, a cocktail (or 2, or 3…) is mandatory. For sanity’s sake. My liver though…well it’s always been a wuss. 😉

I was watching the ACM’s the other night and Miranda Lambert was performing a song of hers that I love at the actual Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, and I was just singing along when inspiration struck, so here you go, my version of a “Bluebird” in her honor.

It’s a pretty simple take on a lemon drop, and I really loved the combination of sweet and tart.

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Blue Curacao
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
  • Mint for garnish

Mix everything in a shaker, strain and pour. Add a sprig of mint to make it pretty.

#Chinchin my lovelies and remember, if love keeps giving you lemons, just mix them in your drink!
