|The Color of Money?|
Well, if you are at ALL like me, you were in the car at midnight. (Rose B, if you are reading this, you DO know I think of you every April 15 at midnight, right?) But here's the thing. In Charlotte, at least, "late hours" post office? TEN O'CLOCK. Ha. That is SO not late in my book.
Anyway, with all the paper flying, stamp-sticking and tears (there are always tax-time tears in this house), no drinks were made yesterday.
Today is recovery day. I've vowed to budget better. I've vowed to save more. And I've vowed to try this drink. Hey, whatever works, right?
The Money Maker is the creation of Mike Bell, Ritz-Carlton's Amelia Island mixologist. Pear vodka, melon liqueur, fresh lemon. I don't know if it will bring me more money in 2011, but I am pretty sure this will keep me quite happy.
