Well, we’re in it again. Today started the beginning of a huge snow storm blowing over DC and the surrounding areas. As of 10pm, we are under a blizzard warning until 10pm tomorrow Feb. 6 and they are saying we could get up to 30 inches of snow or more.
Now I love snow. And truthfully, I’m excited to be in my first blizzard warning. Of course I want everyone to be safe and warm all that jazz, but this is just cool. And obviously, this kind of weather calls for more warm beverages . . . preferably those of the alcoholic variety. In my last post, I gave you the Celestial Warmer.
5.0 oz African Roobios Tea, hot
1.5 oz Mezcal, I used Ilegal Mezcal
0.5 oz agave syrup
1 very long strip of grapefruit peel
Pour syrup and mezcal into a glass or mug and stir to combine. Brew the tea and pour into your container of choice, stirring to combine. Cut a long strip of grapefruit peel over the glass and throw it in. Enjoy.
Finally, I’ve had some folks ask me about how much snow we’ve had so far in DC. I decided to take a little video and share it with everyone. This video was taken on my balcony around 11pm Friday, Feb. 5 2010. The noise you hear in the video is the wind.
Tomorrow I’ll post another video that shows the overnight accumulation. And, of course, another warm drink!
