It’s Saturday Sips at Six…and Thyme Flies! Apparently, our day lit evenings will fly away after today too. Daylight Saving Time ends this Sunday at 2 a.m. and I’m taking no chances for keeping my normally positive mood in tact. It’s no secret to my family that I do not like the cold, dark days of Fall and Winter – in fact, I get down right annoyed! Let’s just say if human hibernation was a thing…
But what’s a sun worshiper to do? Eat and drink as many antioxidant, mood boosting and nutritious foods as I can find, that’s what! So in an effort to change my current state of irritation, I am doubling down with Angry Mussels from Ford’s Fish Shack and a Thyme Flies Pomtastic Martini!
Thyme infused Grey Goose Vodka, Pama Pomegranate Liqueur and a splash of Grand Marnier Orange Liqueur combine to calm the attitude of these Angry Mussels and the exceptionally delicious broth and ciabatta bread for dipping!
And, since we get an “extra” hour to burn calories on Sunday morning, I’m counting on all the health benefits from this Triple Chocolate Brownie (also from Ford’s) to keep me on a happy and satisfied track!
Thyme Flies Pomtastic Martini

2 oz. Grey Goose Vodka (Thyme Infused for several days or longer)
