Happy New Year
Happy New Year! I've been absent for a while, busy with the holidays and unable to speak for the obscene amount of cookies being shoveled by the fistful into my mouth at all times. I have for you, tonight, the night after New Year's Eve, the perfect cocktail to take the edge off the bummer of the end of holidays, to warm the cold toes of winter, to grow the heart of even the most devout Grinch. And it's easy to make. All you need is some ice, or snow. That will do in a pinch. And some vodka. Pour it over the ice, wait fifteen seconds. Be patient! Pour in some tea, left over from breakfast perhaps. Not hot, mind you, just some regular old tea that you brewed some time ago. Squeeze a lemon over it. Perhaps a sprig of mint. Or just forgo the tea, the lemon, and the mint and drink the damn vodka. It's a New Year, kid. Enjoy it.
Here is something else I wrote, not food related, but definitely related to all the drinking and cookie binging.
