C Is For Cocktail

The Corpse Reviver II is a "hair-of-the-dog" cocktail that was invented in the 1930s.  I had my first one last Thanksgiving at a drinks party at friends in New York and I was hooked.  It has quickly become my favourite cocktail.  It's got everything going for it - it's sweet, it's sharp, it's tangy and it has a lovely hint of anise from the Absinthe.  Fair warning though:  it packs a wallop.  One is great, two is good but any more than that and you're heading into dangerous territory.

We always have some sort of music playing in the house and I love to customize music to mood or event.  Here's a 1930s inspired playlist to listen to while enjoying your Corpse Reviver II.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone and to those who celebrate, Happy Easter.

A Day In Bed

Today's post is short and sweet because we have friends visiting from New York and we've been busy being tourists in our own city.

One day soon, I'm going to treat myself to a day in bed.  Breakfast in bed, reading in bed, lunch in bed, napping in bed, dinner in bed, then sleeping in bed.  Sounds heavenly.  Preferably on a rainy day.

I wish you all a wonderful day.
