Vodka + Cranberry Juice Dreams Dashed

The Cape Cod or Cape Codder is a type of cocktail made with only fruit juice and spirits. The name refers to Cape Cod, Massachusetts, a peninsula and popular tourist destination located in the eastern United States which is famous for growing cranberries. A Cape Cod is made with vodka and cranberry juice, and may be garnished with a lime wedge. Proportions vary, with sources giving a recommended vodka-to-juice ratio of 1/4, 1/3.7, 1/2 and 1/1.5, while other sources do not recommend precise proportions. Some sources recommend lime juice instead of a lime wedge garnish.

This is what I was hoping to down a few of this long weekend, while chillaxing at home. I imagined me, fried chicken for dinner, several glasses of vodka & cranberry juice. Knowing about the 4 day weekend in advance, I even purchased a set of long glasses for juice/cocktail drinks so I could enjoy drinking them in these glasses. Especially since I loved the way the vodka and Smirnoff Espresso vodka looked in similar glasses 2 weeks ago in Couchyn Bar. By the way, I actually thought I was buying just one single glass at Rs.412 + taxes and thinking it was expensive for just one and finding out that it’s actually a 6 glass set.

So anyway, I’ve had a bad cold and cough and phlegm infection since Tuesday and today the cold and cough is gone but the infection remains. Oh all the bad luck! 4 days off and if I cannot drink then I will go crazy. Well, I could drink but I don’t drink if I am unwell or recovering.
