A white wine spritzer: The height of 1980s sophistication. Whether it was Dallas or Falcon Crest, the chicest of the chic let down their sprayed hair onto well-padded shoulders with a spritzer. And did that make an impression on me. Alas, I learned the truth when I came of drinking age: white wine spritzers are kind of boring. So we made them amazing. Mine are so dangerously delicious you might let someone talk you into getting a perm.
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 ❤️
