The New Cocktail

As we were making our way through the grocery store, it finally came to my attention that I was still allowed to have fun drinks and that not all fun drinks are taboo.  Surprisingly, I haven’t missed the alcohol.  Yet.  I usuallly have just one cup of coffee a day but I’ve decided to cut even that in half and top it off with milk, latte-style.  I’ve become reacquainted with orange juice as a breakfast drink and not just a mixer or a marinade ingredient.  I’ve even gotten on board with the horrendous-looking Odwalla Superfood drink.  A few months backs, I cut out my daily Diet Coke but I’ll probably still save it as a treat now and then.  Yet most of the evenings this past week, I resigned myself to just water.  I love water but half the fun of an adult beverage is that it’s something different and usually designates a treat or marks an occasion.  My latest cocktail invention involves a rocks glass filled with ice,  2 key limes, a teaspoon of honey, and topped with club soda.  I’m sure I’m not supposed to eat honey but it mixes better than sugar.  Plus, you can rim the glass with it!
