The church is grappling with a wave of disillusionment among members who encountered information that sabotages what they were taught about their faith.

There have been countless previous attempts to impress upon us the sheer, absurd mass of, well, things happening on the internet at any given moment. What with all the hundreds of millions of people online Facebooking and Skyping and blogging and Tumbling and Tweeting and god knows what else, it's a pretty consistently impressive display. But just seeing the numbers will never be quite the same as actually seeing each individual action laid out i...

Cucumber Lemonade Gin Punch!

Or the CLGP, as I like to call it. My favorite #summer cocktail. On a warm day out on the porch I just can’t imagine anything better. And because the cucumber lemonade is assembled before adding the gin, the base can be served without the booze for anyone not imbibing. The cucumbers become a sort of fresh pickle in the lemonade and should be devoured, not discarded.

Software:
4 whole lemons, halved
1/2 cup sugar
1 quart water
1 large (9-10 ounces) cucumber, trimmed and sliced into thin rounds on a mandoline
24 ounces gin
ice cubes

Procedure:
-Juice the lemons into a large pot and throw the bodies in there too. Add the sugar to the pot and muddle (or mash with a masher, rolling pin) with the lemon bodies and juice for 2 to 3 minutes.
-Add the water and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
-Strain into a 3-quart pitcher and add the cucumber. Steep for 1 hour.
-For punch: Add 24 ounces of gin and stir to combine. Serve over ice.
-For a single cocktail: Place 4 to 5 ice cubes in a rocks glass. Add 1 1/2 ounces of gin and 2 1/2 ounces of lemonade. Stir to combine.
-Serve immediately!

It should go without saying that this delicious punch should be enjoyed responsibly.
