Just when I was getting in the Christmas mood... it's over. And what beautiful weather we had here in the San Fernando Valley on Christmas day! The perfect day went by in a blur of flying wrapping paper, oohs, aahs and eating.
My husband and I witnessed our second Christmas miracle; the first was that the icicle lights worked the first time I hung them outside. Our second miracle? My daughter spent her own hard earned money on gifts.
Later that evening, to break in my new glasses, I made Lemon Drop Martinis - 4 parts citrus flavored vodka, one part triple sec, mixed into a shaker of ice. Rim glasses with lemon and dip into sugar. Pretty, refreshing and really simple.
