Spring is almost here! After slogging through months of ice, snow and beard-ruffling wind, the anticipation of those first green buds has me practically climbing the trees to paint the damn things on. As an offering to the gods to—please!—make it come sooner, we’ve created a Spring Fever cocktail. Inspired by my Effortless Table place setting of the same name, it’s got dried cherries soaked in bourbon as the surprise ingredient—a favorite trick of mine to give a drink an unexpected kick.
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! 😘
