It is very hot here, and we just put shade sails (TM) over the patio, making it the perfect place to hunker down with a thermos full of cocktail to share with friends. Or myself. I like to keep things simple so that I don't have to do too much work before I plop down in my lawn chair, so I'm limiting myself to three ingredients per cocktail for the next couple of weeks...
Makes one drink
Juice of half a lemon
1.5 oz. gin
Stir together in a glass and guzzle.
12 oz cream cheese
5-6 tablespoons pickle juice
1/3 cup finely chopped dill pickle
1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
Mix cream cheese with pickle juice, chopped pickle and fresh dill. Serve with celery sticks.
