The Classic Manhattan

I told my husband I wanted to call this the “Quarantine Desperado”.

But apparently this cocktail has a name already! Let’s get you going with the ingredients, because no one has time to go through the huge story about what we are going through right now, or where the Manhattan originated from, etc. Etc.

Ingredients:

3 ounces of Whiskey (I prefer Rye for most cocktails)

1 ounce Vermouth (mix dry and sweet in equal parts if you have it)

2 dashes of Bitters

1 tablespoon of cherry juice (from inside the cherry jar)

Maraschino cherries for garnish

This recipe could not be more simple. Once all ingredients are added to a mixer with ice, just stir and pour into your favorite glass and add the cherry for garnish. That’s it!

I’ve added a large ice sphere to mine here for the dramatic affect, but also because I love every cocktail to be super chilled. Your choice!

I’ve used coupe glasses for this cocktail because I love how elegant these look. Lowball glasses are also perfect for a Manhattan.

Cheers to another several weeks of Quarantine! However we get through this, is how we get through it. Hang in there, folks!

Shabby Chic Baby Shower

Now here is a baby shower for that momma who knows the trends. This adorable shower was brought together for a special mom-to-be, and took place at a local wine tasting room!

Everything about this space was perfect. There was wine, and wine… kidding. But the wine was a plus! The lighting was great, there was a perfect wall that fit our dessert table perfectly! And a large family-style farm table right in the middle of the room. Www.greatwineusa.com

We had most of our staple dessert options available on this table, including the famous macarons, cake pops and mini cherry cheesecake. My favorite thing about these desserts were that they combined together in shapes and colors to make the perfect distribution on the table! Not too much, not too little.

These cake pops were a specific request from the mom-to-be. She had seen this style online and loved the simplicity to it! I do too actually, I’m hoping to create a new post with how to make these shortly.

Hope you like it!

Let’s get this party started.

Wow. Why did it take us so long to start blogging?

I must admit, it was a bit daunting to imagine the effort that goes behind maintaining a blog. I’m a busy girl, with the events we have lined up, a stay at home mom, and a moonlighting as a baker, I hardly have free time to sit and chat.

And yet here we are! I’m excited to be able to give you a glimpse of what goes on behind the curtains in our crazy world. Hope you enjoy the journey with us.

So let’s start from the beginning.
