Life List Inspiration from Go Mighty

A lot of good stories were shared on Go Mighty last week:

– Are you a hugger? Sara needs your help.
– “She was timid, fearful. She wasn’t sure of her place in the world, and she cared far too much about the opinions of others. The girl that sobbed on I-75 south from Cleveland, Tennessee to Atlanta in 2001 has been replaced by this woman who stopped waiting for her life to start.” Jessie, is beginning a new adventure.
– Sharon is on week 17 of her portrait project.
– My friend Jessica crossed something major off of her list. Congrats, sis.
– Sarah shares what she chose to do with her $1,000 Life List grant. It’s a good thing.

Go Mighty is still in beta, but we’re processing invitations within about 24 hours now, so come add your Life List and tell us what goal you’re crossing off next.

Mighty Thirst: Tangelo Cooler

My intent was to make this taste like a 50-50 bar, and? Nailed it. Here’s how you achieve the effect.

TANGELO COOLER

– Juice of one Tangelo (or orange)
– 1/2 shot Amaretto
– 1/2 shot Cointreau
– 1 shot vodka

Put a few ice cubes in your glass, add the booze, and squeeze in the juice of a Tangelo. Stir until the drink is chilled, sip, and try not to drink the rest in a single gulp. Seriously, maybe have a glass of water first.

Here’s to the water warming up, the light through the trees, and the guy at the fruit stand who always makes sure you get a good watermelon.

What are you toasting this week?
