irish candy cane.

family secret no longer: once all the food is prepared on thanksgiving morning, before all the guests arrive, we take a shot of baileys. to say “we succeeded in not burning down the house”. or the fact that we can finally sit down. either or. for those wondering, why a shot of baileys? three reasons. 1] we like to have fun. 2] but we have taste buds. 3] and don’t want to pass out under the table.

this cocktail is in honor of my family’s thanksgiving morning baileys shot.

cozy night in.

when it comes to winter, I prefer to stay in. especially at night. and now, while the weather is still nice, it is the perfect time to prepare my wardrobe, living room, and kitchen. the snowy nights are coming.

nothing over $27.

[don’t forget your man].

a bottle of peppermint schnapps is always a good idea too. delicious in hot cocoa. [and I’ll be sharing a few cocktail recipes that feature it]. whether we like it or not, the holidays and winter are sneaking up.

happy monday.
