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.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
