When I was 21, I did not understand the appeal of Bloody Marys. Tomato juice, vodka, and celery did not sounds like a good time to me. Now, I’m obsessed. I can drink a Bloody day or night. They are packed with flavor, are a great savory option when gin or bourbon wont cut it, and they don’t clash with many foods. Continue reading
Although most of my Thirsty Thursday posts are recipes I came up with off the cuff, I was recently sent two bottles from Bodega Ruca Malen of 2016 Aimé Sweet Moscato for National Sangria Day on December 20th.

I’ve been posting Thirsty Thursday posts for a while on this blog. On a day off, my mind conjures up many kinds of mixed drinks, from simple to complex.

So, not knowing what to do with myself, I made a cocktail. I wanted something with citrus, though still bold enough to remind me that this is actually winter not July 4th.
