Cozy Cocktail

With more time at home, I'm trying all sorts of new things.

 I'm learning basic photography, playing guitar 

...and shaking  up some tasty cocktails. 

The Grinch Cocktail

by Half Baked Harvest

 I enjoy sipping a flirty libation from time-to-time.  

I really enjoy drinking them in a beautiful bar, where there's a sleek drink menu and mixologists in waxed canvas aprons. 

Alas, COVID has forced the bars to closed. But, COVID hasn't cancelled FUN. 

I'm still here for it. 

I'm a novice cocktail maker at best, but I'm resourceful and went to my go-to source of all things delicious...Half Baked Harvest

Both of her books are a staples in our house. We've made so many of her recipes and we're never disappointed. She happens to live in Colorado (a bonus!).

I found a beautiful spicy and sweet concoction. It's name " The Grinch."
