Happy Hour: Lemon Rain

Me and my big mouth.
I've been talking about how nice the weather has been, so naturally this weekend was icky, gloomy and rainy. However, instead of being sad by having to stay indoors, I decided to take the rain as inspiration and went in search of a good "rain" drink. I found this one by Bar Chef Daymon Smith of the swanky Roosevelt Hotel in LA. The drink, called Lemon Rain, brings out the best part of a rainy spring day, the crisp cool feel. To check out the recipe,


Lemon Rain
From Bar Chef Daymon Smith of Roosevelt Hotel and Star Chefs

Put all ingredients into a martini shaker and shake vigorously for 5 seconds. Pour into a 7 oz martini glass. Garnish with a cherry.
