Welcome to the Square Waffle Friday Wind Down! The plan is to make this a weekly post with news from all around, a drink of the week to help you wind down, some of our favorite Instagram post of the week, and who knows what else may get posted.
Lite news week this time around. If you have something you want us to share please let us know.
Local things to do this week
Have you ever been hiking at Tom Dorman State Nature Preserve?
Even though it is winter, there are still great hiking trails in Kentucky. This past week we did the Palisades trails. One big advantage to winter hiking is you get to see the Kentucky river palisades so much better. We hiked about 4 miles in about two hours. Totally worth the quick trip to Garrad county. Look for a full post on this great hike.
Drink of the week
1 ½ oz dark rum
1 ½ oz pineapple juice
¾ oz Aperol
½ oz lime juice
½ oz simple syrup
Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake.
Strain into a glass with ice (garnish with pineapple wedge)
If you don’t have Aperol on hand you can use Campari instead. We’ve made several Aperol drinks so we always have that one on hand.
Any dark rum will do. We are a big fan of The Kraken dark spiced rum. It works really well in this recipe.
Instagrams of the week Top 3
Each week we plan on posting 3 or maybe more Instagram post that caught our eye.
