I found myself in shock after last weeks episode, The Devil’s Mark. This was acting at its best as well as writing and directing. I completely forgot that I read the book. Each scene was full of emotions ranging from disgust *Leghair, Father Bain* to suspense *cray Geillis* to downright reaching for a tissue as Claire was whipped and when Jamie turned and left her at the stones. I’ll admit I held on to my husband’s hand for the entire episode and tolerated his side glances whenever I sniffed.
When the credits scrolled by and next weeks preview played he finally looked at me and said (we have an agreement he can’t talk to me until the show is completely over) “I thought you read the book, why are you acting like you didn’t know what was happening?” Because babe, it was just that good. While watching this episode the book really did not matter. I was swept up into Outlander Starz world and boy was it a magical place.
Now as our favorite couple is heading to Lallybroch I need to chill out and relax. This episode should be smooth sailing right?! Nothing like getting a Welcome Home party thrown by family and friends. Like my 4yr old likes to say easy peasy lemon squeezy. So fans if you are able to join me in a cocktail drink this Saturday the recipe is at the end of this blog. I have named this drink Lemon Drop at Lallybroch. What’s in your cup? Slainte Mhath!!
Recipe is as follows. 5 parts Citron Vodka, 3 parts Sour Mix, 1 Part Lemoncello. (Sour Mix Recipe: 1 cup sugar, 2 cups Water, 2 Cups fresh strained lemon juice) Shake on ice; pour into a sugar rimmed glass
peace love happiness
