Get Steamy with This Lucky in Love Cocktail Recipe That's Infused With Italian Liqueurs

Some people have all the luck—but the rest of us could use a few magic charms. Inspired by my Effortless Table place setting of the same name, it combines two aromatic Italian liqueurs (and we all know how amorous those Italians are!) with the not-too-sweet fruit of blueberries. Make this cocktail and your love life is guaranteed to hit a hot streak.

This will always be my favorite picture of my mom, because it displays the sheer joy in her face as she reaches for her favorite present-- a roll of twenties. Happy Mother's Day, Terri. You really are the best! ❤️❤️❤️ (And Happy Mother's Day to anyone else reading this, if it applies. And if it doesn't, have a fabulous Sunday!)
