We all need a cocktail after this weekend. Hurricane Irene was nice enough to drop by, she didn't to much damage, acted more like an angry lady, did her stuff and left. Anyway, I need a cocktail to keep me going and this one is my all time favorite. I call it the Anne-Frid. Named after my favorite singer in ABBA.

  1. So, you start with muddling some fresh berries and a rosemary sprig in a glass.
  2. Add the juice from 1/2 lime.
  3. Add 2 cl simple syrup (it's just equal amounts sugar and water boiled and cooled), and as much vodka as you want.
  4. Top off with some soda water, and voila... you have a cocktail that should keep any hurricanes well away.
