Cocktail Hour

Appleton's Estate VX Jamaican rum. Schweppe's  tonic.Commercial grade ice from distilled water. A large wedge of fresh lime. Quality crystal glass with evergreens etched on the side.  Vintage wicker furniture on a screened porch.A view of Lake Colby in the Adirondack mountains. Evening sun lighting the birch and hemlock.

You're in my neck of the woods! You renting a place or are you some kind of independently wealthy tycoon?

JV: We rent a place every Summer..usually on Upper Saranac..but last few years on Lower Saranac at Ampersand Bay.
The view in the photo is from my friend's place on Colby. Their family has been in Saranac Lake region since the 30's.
Next time I am up I will buy you a beer at the Waterhole!
Your Blog is terrific by the way...been reading for a while now.

Superb pic! One of my favorite summer drinks.

But the glass makes it PERFECT!

Oh yeah? Well I just drank cheap muskat out of a paper cup in front of five a-holes at poker night, so I guess we're BOTH classy.

Love Appleton rums! Fond college memories of a sailing trip to the islands over christmas and bringing back several bottles of Appleton Black.
