Hi everybody! First off, thank you so much to everyone who participated in the Craft Cocktails at Home giveaway. Congrats, amyfaith, you are the winner!
I feel extremely fortunate to have not one, but two close friends who are dedicated cocktail enthusiasts, so I’ve been able to sample all sorts of lovely new flavors, aromas, and textures over the past few years. But I always end up coming back to the good ol’ sidecar. (I like it on the sour side without a sugared rim — I like my margueritas w/o salt too!)
Well, that and manhattans (with Maker’s Mark and a Luxardo cherry, thankyouverymuch).
And for those of you that would like another chance to win a copy, Eva of Adventures in Cooking is going to be doing a giveaway this month too!
Now, in other, super exciting news (which you might already know about if you follow me on Facebook): I was featured on Saveur’s Sites We Love series this week! Ahhhhh!! I’m not even sure I can fully express how I’m feeling right now. I have been having so much fun in this space lately, and the Saveur feature is the icing on an epic, amazing cake. I’m getting a little choked up thinking about how much a love being here, sharing and talking with all of you. And just how darn good things are right now. The sun is shining, the snow is melting, the ground feels soft beneath my feet. I’m tweaking on the impending Spring, and everything is inspiring, exciting, and awesome. I love you guys, and I hope you all have fantastic, sunny weekends. :)
