Eagle Lake is near a small town called Park Rapids, which has a really cute downtown area. They have lots of neat gift shops and candy stores. I really enjoy the art stores and looking at the creations that local artists have made. This year I even bought a necklace created by a local artist.
My uncle David makes some great cocktails. He makes the best cosmopolitans, using top-notch ingredients. Here is his recipe (my August Cocktail of the month):
1/4 jigger Chambord (a raspberry liqueur)
1 jigger Grey Goose Vodka
3/4 jigger cranberry or pomegranate juice
1/2 jigger Grand Marnier (an orange liqueur)
1/2 jigger Rose's Lime Juice
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a slice of lime, if desired. Serves one.
This sums our summer vacation. It was a beautiful, relaxing time for us and we are sad to be home.
