Another Foggy Weekend

Well, it's no secret that the weather here in
 Northern California this summer has been 
to say the Oh how I have been 
missing the sunny mornings and starry nights
 and even though the afternoons have not only been
 gloriously warm and sublime,
it is time to take matters into our own hands and...
get behind the bar to clear the air.

The first time (the ONLY other time) I've
had one of these devilish concoctions
was when celebrating our friend Patti's birthday
at the infamous Trader Vic's .
"Hell, after two of these, you won't even see the stuff"-

No matter what state or state you are in,
the contents are sure to invite
the sunny side of life.
