Happy Friday! The LYK has one of our favorite cocktails on the menu today.

This drink is almost a Moscow Mule, but it’s not. There is no Russian Vodka in it, although that would have been far more festive on our part to celebrate the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

This drink contains gin. I didn’t think I liked gin but perhaps it’s my love of lime that offsets that flavor because this drink was so good!

LYK Relaxation Station: Cool Cucumber Margarita

by Pearl


I don’t think anybody would argue with that the anticipation of the upcoming three day weekend has made this the slowest work week EVER!  Not to mention Mr. Golden Sun who has been teasing me all week through the window of my fluorescently lit cubicle.  However, it wasn’t until Wednesday night’s events that time actually began to stand still.

Deep in my laboratory (aka my kitchen) the fate of my weekend was sealed when I crafted the perfect Labor Day Read more...
