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.
Super-honored to be a part of the LA Times Festival of books this weekend. If you're in SoCal, stop by my presentation on Sunday (4/23) at 11 am. Info at www.latimes.com/festivalofbooks for exact location. (It's on the USC campus.) #free #ihateveryoneexceptyou #bookfest
