When Life Hands You Lemons …

Artwork by Linda Kegley


Or as the more recent saying goes, “When life hands you a quarantine, make a quarantini!”

Even Ina Gartner, the Barefoot Contessa, recently posted on Instagram — at 6 a.m. no less — “It’s always cocktail hour in a crisis!”

The quarantini, as defined by the sharpest brains on the internet, is a drink easily made with just a few ingredients that you have lying around the house.

For those wondering which quarantini recipes are popular in Florida, click here for a list of favorites, including one made with an optional garnish of Charmin toilet paper.

And for those of you who haven’t seen the Barefoot Contessa’s early morning cocktail concoction, enjoy:



One thought on “When Life Hands You Lemons …

  1. Those of you responsible for the visual of the beach and the continued updates on the blog a huge heartfelt “THANK YOU”. We were fortunate enough to spend a family, memory making vaca a few years ago at your beautiful and I’ve never forgotten every frame of it!! We shared the nicest visit with a wooden toy maker from mid America. Gave our “kids” wooden toys he’d fashioned out of wood. It’s times like this pandemic when we truly appreciate those special moments! Thanks again !!
