I'm Making Gin!

My aunt and I are in touch with each other every day. My aunt is only 12 years older than me, making us closer in age than were any of her three siblings, so we have a different aunt/niece relationship than probably what is considered normal. We exchange texts every morning, and I’m not going to sugarcoat it, we do so in order to make sure that one of us is not dead. The rule is that if we don’t hear from one another by noon, we call, and if that call is unanswered, we reach out to each othersoffspring. I am happy to report that the latter has yet to occur.When you text someone every day, it can become a bit boring, so I like to throw some interesting one liners at her, including what I have planned for the day. This morning I sent her a text that simply read, “I’m making gin today, what are your plans?

 I am indeed making gin. I’m always curious as to how things work, hence the mushroom growing kit (that turned out to be a delicious success), and because I am a gin girl, making gin seemed right up my alley. I will be using this kit, and according to the instructions, I should have results in less than a week. I’ll be back to report.

Oh I'm a gin girl too! Can't wait to hear what you think. What did your aunt reply?

I can't wait to hear about it and how you used it. Gin is my choice for a great dirty martini!

I love gin. Usually a Sapphire Bombay person but thought I would try a new to me small company gin one time when I was in a grocery store in California. The shelf talker had rave revies on this gin (some guy's name)so I bought a bottle of it. Back at the hotel mixed one gin & tonic with it and poured the rest down the drain. It tasted like a swamp. LOL. I am sure yours will be much better than that one.
