Lennons and Lemontinis

Hope y'all had a lovely Thanksgiving. My family did. It was a smaller gathering than usual at my oldest sister's house but it was fun. There was much eating, drinking, and really bad karaoke. The Lennon Family we ain't. What I lack in talent I make up for in volume. I totally belted on Carrie Underwood's Before He Cheats. Any inhibitions I had were taken care of by the Lemontinis I consumed. My sister was in charge of the food; I was in charge of the booze. Let me share the Lemontini recipe - y'all, they are soooo good.

Absolut Citron Vodka
Lemon Concentrate
Simple Syrup - mix 1 cup sugar into 1 cup boiling water until sugar is dissolved.
Sliced Lemon

Mix in Shaker:
several ice cubes
2 and 1/2 jiggers of citron vodka
1 jigger simple syrup
1/2 jigger lemon concentrate

Shake well, pour into sugar-rimmed coated glass, add slice of lemon.


Now here's a fun picture of The Lennon Sisters doing their "strip" number. I'd have to drink way more to add this to my karaoke repertoire.

original Lennon Sisters reunited onstage

Over on the Welk Notes group and website, fans have posted about the special treat they enjoyed at Thurs. Nov. 1, 2007 show by The Lennon Sisters/Gatlin Bros. in Branson. Dee Dee and Peggy Lennon were both in the audience and joined their sisters onstage for a performance of May You Always. What a delightful surprise that must've been!

Check out Alice's photos of the event on Peggy's outfit is most unfortunate, but Dee Dee looks cute in jeans.

Here we have more pictures of the photogenic Lennon Sisters, courtesy of Katerina. The first two are just precious. Peggy's smile is so cute. They were adorable little girls who turned into real beauties.
