JULY 11–JULY 17 NATIONAL VODKA WEEK Toast to summer! Kick back and relax this week with a cocktail made with vodka—Americans’ favorite spirit by a wide margin! To celebrate, whip up a sweet, tangy Sea Breeze. To make a Sea Breeze: Fill a pint-size Mason jar with ice, then pour in 4 oz. of cranberry juice, 1 oz. of vodka and 1 oz. of grapefruit juice. Seal the jar and pop in the fridge to chill. When ready to drink, give the jar a good shake before removing the lid. This will create the “sea foam” effect that gives this delicious cocktail its beachy name! JOKE OF THE WEEK I still like to make handwritten lists. I also like to leave them on the kitchen counter, then guess what’s on the list while I’m at the…
