Alltop, confirmation that I kick ass

It’s Friday again. And well, I’m personally relieved. It’s been a week full of UPS and DOWNS with a good dose of guilt blended in. Randy the perfekt husband, who is recuperating from a rattlesnake bite, went back to work yesterday. While relieved, I also feel guilty that I was VERY BUSY with so many mommy things and work meetings that maybe I didn’t spend enough time with him while he was home. 

The whole swine flu thing put my mommy radar on high-alert. And while the WHO put the pandemic threat level at 5, scientists are now saying that this is proving to be a mild strain. WHEW!  So now I feel guilty that I might have overreacted to the whole thing by buying out the last of the wipes at Walmart and stuffing them in all of Julia’s pockets, her backpack and her lunchbox.  Oh well, nobody’s perfekt. Especially me.   

Anyway, in the hopes that this whole swine flu thing will FIZZLE OUT soon and leave us mommies breathing easier…literally! I present my mommy friend Johanna’s GIN FIZZ RECIPE!!! Always a big hit at our cul de sac gatherings! Enjoy!  


Johanna’s Gin Fizz

Add to Blender:

1/2 can of frozen concentrate lemonade (reserve the rest in an empty glass and use empty lemonade can as a  measuring cup)

1/2  can of gin

1/2 can of “half & half”

One egg

One heaping spoonful of powdered sugar

Fill blender the rest of the way with ice and blend


Pour into a tall glass and enjoy…..and try not to feel guilty about the calories!


Also, remember…. don’t feel guilt and drive!

Side note: Some of you have expressed concern about the raw egg in the recipe. As always, use your mommy judgment. If you stay away from things like Caesar Salad and Hollandaise sauce and you don’t let your kids lick the spoon when making brownies, this isn’t the drink for you.

  1. What about the raw egg in the drink or does the gin kill the germs?
    Not being critical, just asking? See, some of “us mommies” are afraid of all germs. lol

  2. A good point MomofMaci! I looked up egg safety at the USDA website. There was no indication that gin would kill any germs. (Only that it would kill brain cells). So if you want to be perfectly safe, the best bet would be to stay away from ANYTHING with raw eggs. This includes Caesar salad and Hollandaise sauce. For more info on egg safety check out
