The new website is here! The new website is here!
After weeks of agonizing over domain names, logos, background images, fonts, and whatever else I could find to agonize over, I’ve finally made my decisions. If you’re reading this it means you’ve found the new home for my blog. Good job!
Seriously, I am a Libra so this was no easy feat. I scoured over 112 logos that looked almost exactly the same before I picked the one I did. It all became a dart throw in the end, really. I do hope you like it because I think it’s pretty darn good. Of course, I had help, but I did a lot of work all by myself.
Of course, it’s time for a drink to celebrate my accomplishments. I don’t know why, but I’m having a major love affair with the classic cocktails lately. By classic, I’m referring to prohibition era drinks. So glad I wasn’t alive then. I’ve heard they are making a comeback because people drink them on Mad Men. I can’t vouch for that, never having seen the show, but I can vouch for the fact that they’re damn good.
- 1 1/2 ounce brandy or cognac (I used St. Remy brandy which I had on hand for a cookie recipe. Not bad at all)
- 1 ounce Triple Sec (or cointreau if you like throwing money around)
- 1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
You know the drill. Pour it all into a shaker with ice and shake, shake, shake.
I’ll admit that when I first read the ingredients for the sidecar my stomach did an unsettling flip. “Brandy is wine, right? With lemon juice?” Well, I decided to try it anyway and made a wonderful discovery. This baby is smooth as silk.
