Well, we blinked and there went summer. With haying, packing maple syrup, witnessing new calves, and making plans for fall and winter we haven't had a chance to post anything lately.

You agree? Try this: Mix one and a half shots of a good tequila with half a shot of lime juice and half a shot of maple syrup. Shake it with ice, then pour over fresh ice and serve with a squeeze of lime. Too sweet? Try a touch more lime. Too lime-y? Try a touch...
