Mommy Drinks Because You Cry



We don't get invited to many "grownup" parties these days, but we were recently invited to a vodka infusion party. I am not sure how one goes about infusing vodka, so any tips are appreciated. But in celebration of my discovery of what's sure to be a totally awesome invention (vodka + other yumminess), I'm sharing with you my favorite way to drink vodka. Now I'm assuming I can somehow make this cocktail into an infusion of some sort...just have to figure out how. This was an especially great way to put the abundance of basil in our garden to use. Only so much pesto a girl can take...right?

Any partying going on in your world lately?

Sadly, no partying here but I am looking at my basil plants in a whole new light...

Enjoy!
