Friday’s Jug of Joy


It’s been a while since my last post – and this was not planned. As the saying goes… ‘Life happened’… A whirlwind trip back to Durban on personal matters, lead me through experiences good and bad – from indulgent spa sessions, to two hour hospital appointments and ending off with a beautiful wedding of one of my oldest friends. The sadness of leaving family back home, was quickly erased by the arrival of my second (and final) furry baby. Literally, I landed at the aiport – and then collected her at the same time. Thus, the week that’s passed has been a trying one and when the going get’s tough, the bar fridge get’s opened.

The sun is shining, it’s warming up and that calls for pitchers a-plenty. Pitchers, or jugs are some of my favourite things to make – especially in the recipe development phase…taste… hmm… more Pimm’s… taste… more Vodka…taste…

This is my recipe for an easy jug of joy. Have a fabulous weekend, one and all.
