Before your minds begin to wander in a bad direction, Dirty Sue is a premium dirty martini mix. It arguably makes the very best dirty martini. Amazon must agree because they have it on their Subscribe and Save program for auto-delivery so you never run out. Wow.
My stress level has been a bit high lately. I shared my fall from grace when I devoured one of those innocent little Mallomar’s and broke my Lenten sacrifice. I could not go that way again.
So I settled Jack into his man cave (there is no school tomorrow); bid farewell to Chip and Amelia as they went off to shoot hoops and I bolted upstairs to run a hot bath. Not so fast, not without Dirty Sue.
I take my martini very seriously. I have a Vermouth mister for a pure martini; Rose’s Lime juice and vanilla vodka for a key lime martini and to bring it all together, a stainless steel shaker. I do like mine shaken, not stirred and I LOVE sharing a martini with my sister Amy. She is my martini soul-mate.
So I settled into that hot water and sipped that delightful martini and you know what? It felt good, not great, but good. I went to Spin class this morning at 5:00am and that intense class made me feel great. I think I will get up tomorrow and Spin again. I figure so long as I am looking for ways to de-stress, I won’t have time to whittle a shank and end up on Criminal Minds!
