cocktail adventures continued

Here it is!  My only successful attempt at cocktail-ing (per that hater, the drunken marxist).  I found this recipe on Sloshed – next time I think I will use a bit less creme de cassis – my B.R. was a touch too sweet, but definitely a nice bourbon drink for a hot summer’s day.  I’ve forgotten what those are like – it was so cold in SF last weekend I had to turn on the heater.  No whining from me though.  Ladles and gents, may I present you with

   

The Bourbon Renewal

2 oz bourbon
1 oz fresh lemon juice
½ oz creme de cassis
½ oz simple syrup
1 dash Angostura bitters

Mix ingredients and pour over cracked ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

the best

with 7 comments

On Sunday, I made the best cookies ever. I don’t have pictures of them. They look like any old chocolate chip butter pecan cookies, but they taste like THE-BEST-CHOCOLATE-CHIP-BUTTER-PECAN-COOKIES-OF-YOUR-LIFE. exclamation point.

The secret? Loads of butter. Lots of salt. That’s it.

Wanna try one? I still have some left I could send your way. Let’s be clear though, I’m not sending you cookies because I love you, it’s more because I want you to try them and lavish me with cookie praise. The cookies (and I) deserve it.

Jessica de Ruiter is very blonde and her clothes are very tailored and I really want her house in la.  and maybe her collection of pencil skirts.  most of all her leather bag.

finished: february house

"a bon bon of a book"

"an irresistible bonbon of a book"

 

verdict: charming. ish.

recommended? Yes – if you are interested in gossipy reads about bohemian literary-types.  I don’t care too much for W.H. Auden, Benjamin Britten, Carson McCullers or Gypsy Rose Lee — but I do like drunken house parties.  This book had enough of them to keep me interested.  If you take your literary types straight up and serious though, don’t bother.  February House by Sherill Tippins, is available here.
