Rain,Rain Go Away

Firstly, Happy New Year!
It's been over a month since I have paid any attention to this poor, neglected blog.  Christmas and the Holiday Season have once again come and gone in what seems like a whirlwind and things should be settling back into a routine. But, with the terrible disaster that has been unfolding in Queensland and the bizarre weather we have been having here in Australia, it is hard to focus attention on anything else at the moment. Now that there is flooding here in Melbourne, it is all the more consuming, and it is still raining!
I will return to normal posting soon, but in the meantime check out some of these cute rain related vintage prints, while enjoying this very appropriately titled cocktail; 'Damn The Weather'.

Damn The Weather
(cocktail glass)

30ml gin
15ml sweet vermouth
15ml Orange Juice
Dash triple sec

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
