In a week or two, there will be a new post. It will be about either the late Richard Frisbie or a new book by John McPhee.In the meantime, we got two large lemons from a friend. The photograph of the lemons is below and has standard water bottles in it for a reference.
If a bartender had these lemons to make twists for cocktails and if a person ordered a martini, the bartender would likely say, "Would you like a little bit of a martini with that twist?"
These glasses, which my mother gave us a few years ago, hold eight ounces of liquid, which is a pretty good size. But even with that larger size, notice how the lemons extend over the side of each glass.
