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!

Sandi Grigg

Growing up in a small town in the foothills of North Carolina, Sandi always dreamed of living on the coast. In her youth, she was always by the water; she was raised tending a big garden and stomping around in the creek. She spent her adolescent days on a Jet Ski or fishing on Lake James, N.C., and she and her friends would camp and hike the Linville Gorge. Attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte she felt like she was getting out of my small-town box and living the city life; at the same time, she was getting a little closer to the ocean. Moving to Wilmington has been a dream come true, and the life she has created has been a blessing. She enjoys kayaking the Cape Fear, fishing the shores of Carolina Beach, and picking up seashells and shark’s teeth wherever she is. At home, she loves to cook and play with her dogs in the backyard. She also enjoys DIY home improvement endeavors. No outdoor shower, fire pit or flower bed is too big of a job! Being a part of the North Brunswick Magazine and South Brunswick Magazine team has taught Sandi that you really can enjoy your career.
