Burning Photographs…err Steady as She Goes

Today is a Ryan Adams kind of day…musically speaking. It’s a great song, so turn it up real loud. Oopsie, the video didn’t work. I guess that makes today a great day for The Raconteurs instead. THIS should definitely be played loud. Happy Friday! XOXOXO

Shaken, not stirred: The Winter Angel

Friday’s are the perfect day of the week to get your friends together, grab some liquor and drink a cocktail or two or three. Since there’s another storm coming I thought you’d appreciate ‘The Winter Angel.’ You’re welcome loves. XOXO

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 1/2 ounces vodka

  • 1 1/2 ounces Calvados (or any apple brandy)

  • 2 ounces freshly juiced apples (or store bought apple juice if you’re feeling lazy.)

If you have a Martini shaker fill it with ice, then shake, shake, shake. And if you don’t, fill a cup with ice and swirl it around. Pour into the eagerly awaiting glasses and toast to the weekend.

Happy Friday!
