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.

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
