Still trying to figure out that one last trick to impress the in-laws on Thanksgiving? Well guess what...we found it. We are loving the Shake cocktail book (Bailey from Biscuit Home got us hooked!), and found in it a cocktail as beautiful as it is delicious. The best part? You probably don't even need to make another trip to the store for this one!
We're having a quiet Thanksgiving at home — just Willy, Louella, and I plus my pops. You can bet that we'll be throwing a few of these back. I'm not typically a big rosemary fan, but the herbaceous touch with the tart lemon and sweetness of the maple is amazing.
Cheers to lots of turkey and tasty drinks! Lots to be grateful for in 2015!
