My Boyfriend the Bartender - 9

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Big cat, little cat!

My friend Raquel found this book at a dollar book sale and gave it to me as a gift. Given the adorable Pink Panther theme and silly 50s illustrations, I thought it would be fun to leaf through and full of pink, fizzy, sugary fare - I wasn't expecting any mindblowing recipes. But guess what? This book has some seriously boozy, delicious drinks. (And you can buy the book on Amazon for $.01! So do it, good grief!) 

This is the Cat's Eye. 
Potent, clean, and a bit absinthe-y. 
Totally delicious, and not for the faint of heart.

1 1/2 parts gin
3/4 part green Chartreuse 
1/2 part dry vermouth 

Shake with ice, strain over ice. Garnish with an orange peel.

Crop Top: Zara | Dress: Papercrown (here on ebay) | Shoes: Piperlime |  Necklace: Lenora Dame 

Worn to work a while back. I keep choosing outfits all in one color family - pretty sure this was trendy about 2 years ago, but hey, better late then never.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Monday, April 13, 2015

I made chicken noodle soup on a foggy, chilled Sunday a while back. It was a conglomeration of this Baker by Nature recipe and this one from Picture Perfect Meals

(I learned that freshly squeezed lemon juice and a bunch of dill makes chicken noodle soup 1000x more comforting and lush - who knew?)
