Sunday Supper

I had a couple of friends over for dinner and drinks on the patio last night. I love Sunday's spent in the kitchen, music on, windows open.
I rustled up a messy shrimp dish (there's nothing better than getting stuck into a big bowl of prawns covered in a garlic-y tomato sauce then licking your fingers clean), a big green goddess salad and panna cotta for desert. I decided to go with a more mellifluous appetizer, in the form of a light and floral cocktail (the best way to start a meal in my opinion).

My twist on a gin fizz: 1 1/2 oz. gin, 1 1/2 oz. St. Germain, 3/4 oz. lemon juice, 3/4 oz. egg white, 1/2 oz. club soda. Shake over ice and serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon and lemon zest.

  1. Hello Celine,
    You just described my perfect Sunday. Windows open and soft music wafting out, soft breeze fragant with orange blossoms, laughter and wine. Life just can't get any better. Thank you for the prawn recipe though I may wash this down with a refreshing mojito.

    PS. I call my friends "fiends" as well :-) In any case, must have been a very interesting dinner.

  2. I'm really really tempted to try that Gin Fizz...
