It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

The weekend is enough to celebrate, even without the good news of today. But hey, you can never have too much to celebrate, right? So I’ve poured us some fancy champagne along with the usual moonshine brew, and I’m lifting my glass to such an auspicious start to the weekend. Let’s get the party going, shall we?

Did you all miss me? I missed you terribly while I was in Italy. Or, I would have if I wasn’t having such a good time on my vacation. I managed to see enough Renaissance artwork to tide me over for at least a month; I drove a rental car–stick shift–through the back roads of Tuscan hill towns; I ate enough gelato to probably keep the entire dolci industry afloat. There was hardly time to miss anything, so I made sure to take a lot of pictures for you, like the one above.

The moonshine grid is open, so come on in!

Since I usually schlep coffee drinks in the coffeehouse, I made a checklist to make sure I have everything I need to open this joint up. Let’s see: shaker, strainer, white towels to jauntily hang from my back pocket as I work, muddler, long-handled spoon, and my lucky “Kiss the Bartender” apron. Oh, can’t forget my fancy Joker card martini glasses. Yup, it’s all here. Now all I have to do is avoid thinking about all the fun our Natalie’s having in Bella Italia. You know what the Italians say: “Cocktails and mocktails made with jealousy quickly turn sour.”

Which Italians say that? Well, it’s a very common expression in the southeast near the Alps. You know, in the beautiful Makethingsuppia region. Near Bologna. Yeah.

And guess what? Natalie is on vacation for the next three weeks so you get guest bartenders. How exciting! It’s no secret that this California girl loves wine. It’s hot here in the Northeast so this weekend I’m at the pool bar pouring a variety of chilled white wines as well as fizzy fruity delicious nonalcoholic beverages. Not your thing? I’m sure I can scare something else up for you. I just poured myself a chardonnay so pull up a chair and join me.

Got your bathing suit? Towel? SPF 30 (or 50, if your undertones are Casperish, like mine)?  Because it’s Memorial Day weekend in the US, we thought a pool party was in order. Cold drinks and bomb pops are on ice, so grab yourself something tasty and settle into one of the lounge chairs while we get this party started.
