Miller Time Friday: At Last....

Come slowly—Eden
Lips unused to Thee—
Bashful—sip thy Jessamines
As the fainting Bee—

Reaching late his flower,
Round her chamber hums—
Counts his nectars—
Enters—and is lost in Balms

-- Emily Dickinson

In honour of the change in things around here, I feel a cocktail is in order!  This is from the wonderful blog A Beautiful Mess!

The Apple Flower Cocktail,

Serves One

Fresh juice (I used 3 small green apples and two limes)
Rose Water
Bénédictine Liqueur

In a medium sized glass, combine 2 ounces of Bénédictine Liqueur and one drop of rose water. Be very careful when adding the rose water because adding too much will make your drink taste like a bottle of perfume. The easiest way to get just one (teeny tiny) drop is to just dip an unused straw into the rose water and then use that straw in your drink, stirring it a little. Add ice and top the glass off with fresh green apple and lime juice. Garnish with a lime or an edible flower.

Happy weekend friends!  I will be gardening, Barry is hiking 56 km with friends, and champagne and house cleaning are in order here (along with book revisions!)
