The phone rings and I take a look.
Although the sun has been up for some time, the curtains are drawn. It’s my day off and aside from chronic insomnia, I’ve been pulling extra hours at work since lockdown ended- today I get to stay quietly in a darkened room.
The holiday season finally seems to be wrapping up which is nice, things got a little hectic for a while there, recreational homicide did cross my mind. More than once. Hopefully things can settle back into a manageable routine now.
It’s barely even spring and the weather is warming up already. Way to get ahead of yourself, seasons.
Fill up your ice trays, put the soda water and lime juice in the fridge, and the vodka in the freezer- assuming you have a standard domestic freezer set somewhere in the vicinity of -23°C to -18°C (the freezing point of 80 proof vodka being around -27°C), the trick is getting each liquid as cold as possible without actually freezing- excluding the ice cubes of course (fully frozen beverages would just be a pain to get out of their respective bottles).
What you want is a combination of vodka and ice cold enough to freeze the cordial and soda into a slushie-like consistency.
Dance it up with flavoured vodka or gin or whatever, maybe throw in some crushed mint or fruit, I don’t own you. Just remember to ask your parents first if you’re under the legal drinking age.
