Who Is Anastasia?
- New Castle, Indiana Zone 5, United States
- When I was 55, I decided to embrace the things I love and hold precious and dear, regardless of anyone else's thoughts and opinion. I am a visual folk artist who loves flowers - my own flowers, grown and/or painted by me. I love good, hearty, exotic foods, and I love to prepare them myself. I love the secret garden situated in my backyard, regardless of how overgrown and wild it gets. No longer able to afford a vacation, this will have to be it for the time being. In the winter months, I still enjoy it. Anyway, here I am sharing my art, favorite recipes, cocktails, gardening tips, and just my usual vents and bantering. After all, I'm old enough to say whatever the heck I want to now ...

This divinely sour cocktail speaks for itself - crisp, tart and tantalizing on a summer's night on the back porch:
The Jasmine Cocktail
Combine in an iced cocktail shaker:
1 1/2 ounces gin
3/4 ounce lemon juice
1/4 ounce Cointreau
1/4 ounce Campari
Shake until very cold. Strain into a cocktail glass.
