Infusion: Ginger Lime Gin

Current music: Sigur Rós - ()

A few months ago, I started making infusions. So far, I have done green chile tequila, strawberry mezcal, and apple pie bourbon. The apple pie bourbon is gone, so now the next one is being started: ginger lime gin.

- 750 ml bottle of Beefeaters Artisan Cut London Dry Gin
- zest of 2 limes
- 2/3 cup of chopped fresh ginger root

I am planning to infuse it for a few weeks, shaking it every few days.

Snowshoeing in Crested Butte

Lexey, Jodie, Dan, and I went for the weekend to Crested Butte. The skiing on Saturday was a good time. The snowshoeing on Sunday was also. A few photos from our snowshoe adventure are here.

Snowshoeing Mt. Evans

Lexey and I did a small snowshoe trip up the Mt. Evans road today. It was cut short by Koura. She was having serious icy paw problems. I need to get her the booties. When she was younger it never seemed to affect her, but now her paws get bloody. Not good.

A few more photos here.

Photofriday: The Lucky Shot

Last week, I just happened to be in the middle of these trees in Estes Park, CO just when the wind started blowing the previous night's snowfall off of them. Perfect snow-globe effect.
