#happysunday my friends! This past week has been a brutal battle with my conscience over whether to take the risk and accept a job offer or play it safe and stay where I am. My 2 biggest concerns are rent where I would have to move and if I’m ok with not having the money to travel for a few years possibly more. Naturally I avoided making a decision just yet to make a new cocktail for everyone! #procrastination 😅 I call this Honey is Thyme! Muddled cucumber, lemon thyme, lime juice, and honey give this a subtle nuance of freshness. While gin (I used @suntory_rokugin ), @stgermaindrinks elderflower liqueur, and pear brand add complexity and strength. You can find the recipe on my website! The link is in my bio. Enjoy and share with me pictures of your Thyme is Honey moments! #theunpretentiouswineenthusiast #cocktails #summerdrinks #summervibes #caloforniadreaming #mixology #thehomebartender
Do you live alone and have an unfinished bottle of wine going to waste? Or maybe you have some leftovers from a gathering you aren’t planning on drinking? Don’t throw it down the drain! Wine makes an amazing braising and poaching liquid! Plus, you can’t ever go wrong with a white wine sauce 😉 My most recent find I’m loving is curtesy of @foodandwine magazine! They have a recipe for white wine pouched salmon with lemon, leeks, and tomatoes that is 🤤 I made a few personal tweeks such as adding some crushed garlic, a pinch of pepper flakes, and specifically using French cultured butter because OMG it’s f**king amazing! Waist not want not is key to sustainable happiness and it can be an oh so delicious mantra to live by! The link to the recipe is below if you too have some white wine you don’t want to waste!
