Spring is the time of year when we dust off our lawn mowers and prepare for the season of yard work. For me, the smell of fresh-cut grass and dirt goes with lemons. This is because of a memory from my childhood — working in the big family garden and sipping lemonade after all of our hard work. We would sit at our wooden picnic table that sat in the grass beside the garden with a feeling of accomplishment and anticipation of summer’s bountiful offerings.

This particular cocktail I created about 10 years ago while tending my own garden before I moved to the coast. I pulled all the weeds from the garden and mowed the lawn and it took me back to those days with my family. I went into the house to create a lemon drink similar to my childhood lemonade but with a big-girl kick. With the few items I had I created what I call a Whipped Limoncello.

I had already done quite a bit of work so I wanted to make something super easy. This very simple recipe consists of items that I typically keep in my house. Whipped vodka is so versatile, and limoncello is one of my favorites, and who doesn’t have ice cream? With my dirty hands and filthy clothes I poured it into a glass then sat on my deck overlooking my yard and garden. I plucked some fresh mint for garnish and sipped this delicious concoction that took me back to simpler days. Cheers!

Growing up in a small town in the foothills of North Carolina and attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, I always dreamed of living on the coast. After earning my degree in Marketing/Branding I moved to Wilmington and the life my spouse and I have created for ourselves is a blessing beyond words. Together we enjoy kayaking the Cape Fear, fishing the shores of Carolina Beach and picking up seashells and shark’s teeth. At home, I love to cook and write recipes, play with our dogs, and take on DIY home improvement endeavors. Being a part of the Carolina Marketing Company team has shown me that you really can enjoy your job. I am truly grateful to have a career I love in the city I aspired to be in. Life is grand!
