Ash or No Ash, Lots of Ice!

Our Swedish friend has been and gone (on to Luxembourg by train). See yesterday's post for an explanation... Volcanic ash continues to cause chaos over the skies of Europe and Copenhagen airport is still closed for the foreseeable future. Which means that DH has had to bite the bullet and reserve a train seat for tomorrow afternoon. He has a court case on Monday on the Danish mainland (we live in Copenhagen, on the island) and there's little to no chance of him getting there by plane as he usually does. Incredible that a volcano thousands of miles away in Iceland (which, as it happens, formerly belonged to the Danes) can affect us here!

But in times of crisis we cling to our Flylady routines, right? ;) It's 5pm here in Wonderful Copenhagen...time to start our Saturday tradition. Ash or no ash! ;)

You start with a nice glass. Crystal is good. Nice thin lip. It just doesn't taste the same in a normal glass, believe me ;)



Add ice. Lots of it. Be generous. This isn't just so we're really chillin'. We need to get the acoustics right! Do you love that 'ching ching' too? ;)




One part gin. Bombay Sapphire and Tanqueray are our staples.




Three to four parts tonic, (depending on how long you want the night to last).




And then it's 'bottoms up'. And maybe a toast for plane plain sailing? ;)

Hope you have a simply super Saturday! :)

Hi girls! Do you like the smell of gin? Nice and fresh, almost good enough to splash behind the ears! LOL
