I’ve been taking a few days to unplug, do some spring cleaning, and find time for relaxing with the family. Even though it snowed here today, I’m winding down the weekend with a warm weather-inspired g&t featuring blueberry-infused gin and cold-pressed watermelon juice. And after clearing out my shoe collection today, and donating 50+ pairs to Goodwill, I think I’ve earned a drink!
If you love books and cocktails, the Bad People Book Club is the subscription box for you! Each month they send a beautifully curated box with a novel and a recipe + ingredients for a cocktail inspired by the book. I had so much fun creating this month’s Bad People Book Club cocktail!
It’s finally April and Easter weekend put me in the mood for a fun rosé cocktail. I was inspired by my Bonne Maman marmalade to make something along the lines of a Breakfast Martini or the original Marmalade Cocktail, but one thing led to another and I ended up with this bittersweet blend of crisp rosé, lemon, Campari, marmalade, and orgeat.
I love creating cocktails, but my first culinary passion is actually baking. Today I was working on some beet tuile cookies and ended up burning the first few while I figured out the process. The smoky, pan-fried beet cookies were strangely appealing, so I decided to break out the peaty Scotch and turn my cooking mishap into a dreamy, smoky, beet cocktail.
Happy first day of Spring! ?
Let’s be honest, I’ve been celebrating the arrival of this day for weeks (months?) already, but tonight I’m enjoying an extra sunny little sipper to welcome the change of seasons with open arms.
