The Jessica Rabbit

I loved this refreshing and elegant cocktail, and I think it would make a lovely addition to a brunch spread in lieu of a mimosa or bellini. Oregano just happens to be rich in fiber, vitamin K, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants, and carrots are rich in vitamin A, and don’t forget the vitamin C from […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all you beautiful mothers, whether you be a mother of human children or of the more furry variety (like me). Even though I don’t have children I still love this special day to reflect on the love I have for my mother and to celebrate all of the amazing mothers I […]

Persian Warmer

I have to quote from the book as the description of this drink is perfect. “Green cardamom’s exotic perfume is drinkable aromatherapy. Paired with one of winter’s brightest fruits, it turns white hot chocolate into a veritable potion no. 9.”     Thank you Carly for this beautiful book. The Persian Warmer is the first drink I’ve made from it […]
