It's 5:00 somewhere....

Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade
 
 
 
 
 
PREP TIME     
TOTAL TIME  
 
YIELD: Serves 4-5
 
 
INGREDIENTS
For the Blackberry Simple Syrup:
  • 12 ounces fresh blackberries
  • ½ cup sugar
For the Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade:
  • 7.5 ounces whiskey
  • 7.5 ounces lemon juice
  • 1 large rosemary sprig
  • 6 ounces blackberry simple syrup
INSTRUCTIONS
For the Blackberry Simple Syrup:
  1. Put the blackberries and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until blackberries have softened and you have a thick syrup.
  3. Strain syrup through a mesh sieve to separate any seeds or lumps from the syrup. You can discard the leftover pulp, although I like to freeze it in ice cube trays and pop a cube or two in smoothies.
  4. Let syrup cool on the counter for 20 minutes or so before you make the drinks.
For the Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large shaker and add a handful or two of ice cubes. Depending on the size of your shaker, you may have to shake the drinks in two batches.
  2. Shake to combine and chill drinks.
  3. Pour over ice into glasses and serve.
NOTES
Lighten the drinks up a bit (and stretch them to serve more people!) by topping each drink off with a splash of tonic water or sparkling wine.

Miss Mustard Seed Paint Products

 
 
If you like to DIY, you will love HEIRLOOM MARKET!  Tonia will be at B&L Saturday with her Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint products and will be demonstrating painting techniques using MMSMP.  I am really looking forward to learning these techniques.  
Tonia had a space at an event in North Platte recently.  I was so impressed with her painted furniture pieces, which she sells.  Tonia also has a space at The French Door in Sidney, Ne.   Please join us in welcoming her to Burlap & Lace Marketplace on Saturday June 20, 2015.  If you want to see more of her great items, head on over to Sidney and check out her space.

Coming to Burlap and Lace Marketplace...... Love Henry



Lynea has been weaving for about 5 years.  Lynea is very passionate about her weaving and it shows through her work.  Her woven pieces are rich with beautiful colors and textures.  Lynea is also a member of High Plains Spinners and Weavers.  I am going to have some difficulty in choosing one of these gorgeous rungs to take home.  Lynea will be bringing her smaller loom to demonstrate a weaving technique.  Her talents to do not stop there; she and her daughter, Mackenzie will be bringing treasures to wear, repurposed from vintage silverware.
