The Suburban Blog Post In Which I Share A Recipe

(Originally published September 14, 2010 at


Hop, Skip and Go Naked.  That pretty much sums it up right there.

Here are the particulars: 1 can of limeade, 1 can of vodka (yes, that is as much fun to type as it to say), and 4 cheap light beers.  It’s perhaps best when stirred in a plastic pitcher of the ilk used for making Kool Aid and Tang.  Pour over ice.  Enjoy.  Hop, skip and go naked if you care to.

The recipe is not actually mine, and in true Barefoot Contessa style, I won’t be shy about my outright plagiarism.  A good friend brought the drinks to a board meeting during which we were voting on summer award recipients.  She prefaced the pour, “Well, if we’re going to be talking about people behind their backs, we might as well do it right.” (Like I said, she’s a good friend.)

So there.  Bring a pitcher of “skip and gos” to your next board meeting.  Or book club.  I would also imagine it would transport fine in a stainless steel travel mug to this weekend’s soccer games.
