Gorgeous, glowing garden sunset…

The weather in NH was perfect today. It ended with an evening on the back patio.
It was magical to watch the male, ruby-throated hummingbird visit every 3 – 4 minutes between 8 and 8:30pm ET.

Successful Hummingbird Watch in the garden tonight!

It was even more magical to see a gorgeous sunset that made the garden glow tonite.

All accompanied by a garden inspired cocktail – based on a Vesper Martini. Here’s my recipe (for each cocktail!)
2.5 oz Effen Cucumber Vodka
1.0 oz Tangueray Rangpur Gin
0.5 oz Lillet Blanc
Stir with ice for 2-3 minutes. Pour over freshly sliced, cold cucumbers (preferrably from your own garden or local farm) and enjoy!
