I don’t have a recipe today, but I thought I’d to check in to wish you a Merry Christmas. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve showed up here! I have been cooking, not to worry! For the past few months, I’ve been consumed by my other passion: KNITTING! Rather then styling, shooting and editing photos of food, I’ve been using the time to knit. I’ll post a few knitted project pics in the coming weeks. And, I’ll be back to posting recipes soon too!
Today, I wanted to give you a last minute gift idea. As you know, I managed restaurants for many years and was a bartender for quite a few of those years. One of my favorite hot drinks to serve was Blueberry Tea! There’s nothing “blueberry” about it. However, the combination of the liquors and the bergamot from the Earl Grey tea, suggest a faint hint of “blueberry”. If you need a gift for a harried hostess, an exhausted hairdresser, a busy neighbor or a good friend, THIS IS IT!
It’s so simple and cute to put together! Grab a festive mug, a small Amaretto, a small Grand Marnier, and a few Earl Gray tea bags. Place some shredded red paper in the bottom of the mug. Write out the “Blueberry Tea” recipe on a note card. Arrange all in the mug. Tie it all up with cellophane and a cute ribbon! You just might want to make one for yourself too!
Have a great evening and enjoy the holiday. Thanks for stopping by. See you in 2018!
