Squid Mixes: Boccie Ball
The drink combines amaretto and orange juice. The recipe calls for an orange slice garnish but I went with a section of clementine. The drink is quite lovely. Amaretto is scrumptious stuff. Technically, I have a nut allergy but I have also recently learned that an almond isn't really a nut. It is a droop, like a peach or plum. This is good because almonds are yummy, especially in liquor form! I discovered some time ago that it goes nicely with lime. Orange works, too.
What any of this has to do with the game of Bocce - Italian in origin, dating all the way back to Ancient Rome - I don't know. Maybe The Scamp knows. She's quite an expert at chasing balls rolling across the floor. Sadly, I think she's on the verge of outgrowing that short and precious time when a kitten will play Fetch.
