new york in love

January 15th, 2010

Woohoo! We made it another week! That’s always a good sign. I came across two things that made me super happy this week and decided to combine the two. First, as I was flipping through Saveur (which I always forget that I like so much) I found a recipe for the New York cocktail, a combination of Rye whiskey, lime juice, confectioners sugar (?!) and grenadine. That sounded crazy and awesome all at once. The second thing that made my day was walking into the grocery store and seeing blood oranges. Oh how I love those beautiful, sweet oranges! Do you see what I’m getting at? It’s delicious and full of goodness.

I hope you have a lovely weekend!
