Sometimes pinterest is more than just pretty pictures…sometimes pinterest leads to freakin’ amazing cocktails created by badass writers.
If I was a blogging groupie I would be throwing my panties on the stage for this one. Bob Vivant (who is a woman, btw) features great writing, amazing photography and beautiful recipes on her blog. I believe that is what they call a triple threat, or was that dancing, singing and acting. I can’t keep it straight, hence why I am not actually a very good groupie. Broadway…Blogging…I can barely keep them straight.
This recipe was created to commemorate Julia Child’s 100 birthday and was accompanied by a letter written to a women who has been inspiration to so many. My favorite part of the post is where she compares the cocktail to a quote from Julia, “It’s so beautifully arranged…you know someone’s fingers have been all over it.” When I make anything (which is a rarity) my hands are all over every ingredient. I used to think that was because of my lack of experience in the kitchen. I am so glad to know that is common in the most professional of kitchens that when you want things to look perfect, you are going to fuss over it.
