Happy Friday

That’s right – it’s that time of the week again – weekend time.  Kick up them feet and RELAX or put your feet to the test and dance the wee nights away.  Graham and I will be doing a combo.  Probably lying low Friday night and then going to a Thanksgiving party with friends Saturday night.  Nothing like a big meal to bring on the holiday cheer.

I’m going to leave you off this week with a recipe for Persimmon Mojitos.  I haven’t tried them but with the final days of our San Francisco Indian summer upon us, I figured this is the perfect combo of summer and autumn.

Persimmon Mojito


Crushed ice

6 ounces light rum

8-10 mint sprigs

4 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice

Simple syrup (about 4 tablespoons sugar to 4 tablespoons water combined) to taste

2-3 tablespoons persimmon puree, (fuyu variety)

Club soda

2 lime slices


Puree persimmons (remove skin), in a blender or juicer.

Place ice in a beverage shaker, add rum, bruised mint leaves, lime juice, and sugar mixture. Shake well and serve over ice in a high ball glass. Add the persimmon puree and combine gently, and top off with club soda. Garnish with a lime wedge and mint leaves.

What are you up to this weekend?
