Toasting Irene and the October snow storm

As one announcer put it, “It’s like Hurricane Irene, only colder.” We didn’t lose power but several of our trees pruned themselves. So to toast the clean-up effort, two more drinks, each to serve two:

3. Ginger Margarita — 3 oz tequila, 1 oz Triple Sec, 1 tablespoon ginger syrup, juice of one lime, shaken with ice and strained (add more syrup and less lime if you prefer sweet over sour)

4. Cranappletini — 1/2 cup farm-fresh apple cider, 3 oz vodka, 1 oz cranberry liqueur, shaken with ice and strained
