Hi there,

I am sharing with you a cocktail that I have named THE 2020 because the drink is complex in flavor with delicious bitter undertones. Sort of like the year, right? I have to give credit to my friend, Susan Murphy, who introduced me to Deep Eddy Vodka during the height of the pandemic in the spring and then shared the delicious oranges that I used as garnish.


  • Coupe glass
  • Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka
  • Campari
  • Crushed Ice
  • Trader Joe’s Dried Orange Slices


  • Fill coupe glass half way with crushed ice
  • Add Deep Eddy to the 2/3 mark
  • Add Campari to remaining 1/3
  • Pour into shaker and shake vigorously
  • Pour back into coupe and garnish with orange slice
  • Enjoy while meditating on the thought that not everything in 2020 was terrible and we all learned to appreciate simple pleasures.

Cheers, Bernadette, Xxx

  1. CarolCooks2 – Udon Thani – Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them. I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling. Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing. This is now taking me into other areas like deforestation, chemicals and preservatives in the food chain. Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!
