#DOTW: Winter Blue

It’s almost over, this winter was pretty crazy, but it’s just about spring. It’s still cold though, still in the 30’s and 40’s (with the occasional 50’s!?!). We have time for one more winter cocktail. Winter Blue is super easy, Level 1 of mixology if you will. Three ingredients and one garnish makes this drink fool proof! This has some of my favorite ingredients, it’s super delicious. I hope you enjoy this one with me!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz VDKA (or quality vodka of your choice)
  • 1 oz Blue Curacao
  • 3 oz lemonade
  • 1 lemon twist

Combine vodka, curacao and lemonade over ice and garnish with a lemon twist. Easy Breezy!!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
