Plum Wonderful

Right now in Northern California is a great time for eating some ripe plums and cherries. And for picking them off your neighbors tree. And then running away so they don't spot you. And what to do with all of those "borrowed" plums and cherries? We make fizzy cocktail drinks that make us smile.

This is a five-step process so pay attention (very important!):

  1. "Borrow" fruit from neighbors tree
  2. Dice fruit into small pieces
  3. Combine 2 parts fruit to 1 part sugar in a sealed glass jar
  4. Let sit in fridge for 1 day
  5. Strain and mix 1 part "syrup" with 1 part vodka with 1 part soda water

Did you get that? Good. Now go prance down your street and get picking.

And don't you love that the pillows match the cocktail? I knew you would.
