I really want to read my book but I also want to watch 87 hours of Netflix and travel the world and and kiss someone I like and sleep for most of the day… And also I have a lot of homework
Cranberry Thyme Gin and Tonic
3/4 cup fresh cranberries
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
Splash of orange juice
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Fresh English Thyme leaves
Gin of choice (I used St. George)
Tonic of choice (I used Fever Tree)
1. In a small saucepan, mix together the cranberries, sugar, water, splash of orange juice and vanilla extract. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, pressing the cranberries with the back of your spoon until they pop (beware–they’ll splatter!). Add the fresh thyme and smash with the back of your spoon–this will release its aromatics. Note: The mixture should be much looser than traditional cranberry sauce. Pour the mixture through a strainer, discarding the solids, and reserving the cranberry syrup.
2. To assemble the cocktail, add about 1 fluid ounces of syrup to each glass. Top with a few cubes of ice, 2 fluid ounces of gin and then top with tonic. Mix and garnish with fresh sprigs of thyme.
Makes 4 cocktails
let’s spend our week nights eating cereal on the floor
when there is a perfectly fine table behind us.
we can go to the movies and sit in the back row
just to make out like kids falling in love for the first time.
we’ll paint the rooms of our house
and get more paint on us than the walls.
we can hold hands and go to parties we end up
ditching to drink wine out of the bottle in the bathtub.
and slow dance with me in our bedroom
with an unmade bed and candles on the nightstand.
let me love you forever.
My bf is so cute. He said Christmas shopping for me was hard bc it’s our first Christmas together & he doesn’t want to mess it up. Awe, I’ll love anything he gets me! The best gift is going to having him home for the holidays. He’s already bought our plane tickets to go home & he’s taking me to Disneyland too when we’re in Cali! He’s already gone above & beyond anything I could have expected for Christmas 🎁❤️ He’s so perfect & thoughtful. Gaahhh
