today i made up a barely sweetened lemonade spiced with a dash of cayenne pepper. served in an ice filled tumbler with a splash of tonic. very refreshing. after dinner or maybe before dinner, this will become a tasty cooler spiked with gin or vodka.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I have to say the addition of cayenne raises the bar--something about the way it bounces off the lemon-ness. Mine was barely sweetened, too, and absolutely refreshing. Inspired.

a hint of maldon salt will take it to yet a whole 'nother level
