M.'s Pimm's O'Clock

Talking Heads

"Everyone is trying to get to the bar.
The name of the bar, the bar is called Heaven.
The band in Heaven plays my favorite song.
They play it once again, they play it all night long.

Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.
Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens."

Hello FRIDAY! Hello friends. Hello sunshine and single digit temperatures.

I woke up to blue skies and plans for another weekend away.  J wants to squeeze every last bit of snow out of the dwindling winter so we are hitting our local mountain for the weekend. I love this man so much - we have it going on. Gush gush. We have plans to eat here in Waitsburg, did I tell you I love him? He sent me this link, he knows me. A day of play and then some serious eats and bevies. There is a room in the Jimgermanbar called Heaven named after the Talking Heads song (hense the lyrics). Brilliant. The cocktail menu had me swooning, the menu is simple. I am in love and haven't even stepped foot inside.

Snap. Off I go, swooshing down the mountain, no it all honesty it is more like skreech, wobble, wobble, whooow, splat, skooch, skooch.... I told you I can't sit things out, just like our sweet pup, I am almost always game, except for when I am not, then the couch is a completely reasonable place to spend the day. Not this weekend, I will give it all I have, an entire day outside is time well spent.

Since it is Friday, I happen to be in a chipper mood, I have a cocktail that I am all giddy to share with you.

Meet my new current obsession, Pimm's. It will knock your socks off then proceed to blow wind up your skirt - well if you are into those sorts of things. Classy - I know.

M.'s Pimm's O'Clock

makes one refresher

I used half a Meyer Lemon, 'tis the season!

2oz Pimm's
1oz Gin
Juice from half lemon

club soda

Lemon wedge

In a shaker combine Pimm's, gin and lemon juice with ice. Shake or swirl until well chilled.

Strain into a high ball glass (or your favorite drinkware) and finish with club soda and a lemon wedge.

Enjoy the weekend!

Some fresh new mags are making the weekend adventure just in case.... I get sick of eating s!@t all day. So will Pimm's.

If you are into answering random questions that I came across, drop me a line. Lets chat.


  1. I definitely want to make a trip to Waitsburg, it sounds wonderful. And consider this dropping you a line to chat........

  2. oh, I love Pimms but I have it so rarely! Usually I think of needing heaps of summer fruit in order to enjoy with it, but this sounds absolutely wonderful in a pared down way. I even have meyer lemons waiting... :)

  3. Melynda, Waitsburg is an awesome little town as well as Dayton. Plan a get away!

    Lael, Oh I can't wait for summer and the bounty it holds for us!
