#DOTW: Sip Of Spring

Spring is here! It’s my favorite season. Time for some light and delicious cocktails. I love to sip on a good Bourbon every now and then, so I found this recipe that’s perfectly suitable for a later afternoon sip in the cool breeze. Or in front of the TV on the couch after a long work week. Both seem like a perfect wind-down on a weekend day. The longer it swirls in the ice, the more delicious is gets, so take your time, and enjoy!

What you’ll need:

Combine all liquid ingredients in a cocktail glass over ice. Shave off a peel of an orange and twist it above the drink, so the bitters of the peel drip into the cocktail. Stir and enjoy!

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!
