Lemon Bitter Friday
I love photos of food and drinks, and I love to really get in there, almost awkwardly close, where the color and texture and mini sweats of perspiration fill the frame and spill over. Yeah, love that.
So it’s Friday and I’m thinking a drink photo is in order. Actually, I quite like these days of the week themed posts. They are just so…easy, to love, in a completely self-indulgent kind of way, like Southern deep fried po-boys and salsa and old school reggae and New Orleans jazz. Yeah, I miss all that.
Lemon Bitters, according to wikipedia, originated in Australia, which is where I first had them. Haven’t seen them since I got back and it’s another thing I miss about the land down under (first being my twin, of course). Although google image search reveals only crappy pictures of such an amazing drink – fizzy, citrusy, sweet, bitter, unpretentious, cheap, and comes in a warm honey amber hue. What’s not to love?
Last weekend was productive and inspiring. This week has been flying by. Been writing lots. Tap-tee tap tap. Bergman and Tokyo Story this weekend. Are you excited? I am.
Cherrios, lemon bitter Friday.
p.s. Compelled to include some salsa to ease you into the weekend, courtesy of the kind sir James A. Reeves over at KinoSport, whose music taste alone induces a shade of verde in me, which is not always a good look with my yellow skin undertones.
Right, enough talking:
