1/2 oz orange liqueur, cointreau
2 oz grapefruit juice, ruby red if possible
1 tsp *mascobado sugar

Mix all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice & serve immediatly. Salute!
*Mascobado sugar is unrefined sugar & has a sticky quality to it. It is also perfect with balsamic vinegar in salad dressings.

I don't know whether your girls told you, but we, too had thunder and lightning and rain, and a drop from the 80s to the 50s. I can imagine, though, being where you are, there would seem to be more of a feeling of vulnerability. Our electricity flickered instead of going out! We did have 1.5 inches of rain I guess it was Saturday night, but then the rain "all day" Sunday was fairly typical of here. This is the only place where I have lived where it can rain for hours and seem almost totally dry!
