In writing about sandwiches all week, I realized their was an underlying issue that went hand in hand with sandwiches for me, which was comfort. This week was about comfort for me.
Whether it is a warm sandwich on a cold day, a pair of non-age-appropriate Ugg boots, the touch of my Mom’s old beaten up blue robe, ratty sweatpants, a good oldies jam, a Bruce Springsteen song, or cheese, cheese, and more cheese….
Or a classy cocktail that reminds you of a good friend’s comforting voice, while she is traveling the world and swigging Dom Perignon (you can tell I have never drank this because I definitely had to google how to spell it) from expensive Four Season’s balconies, and makes you feel like she isn’t that far away anymore.
Whatever it is that brings you comfort, embrace it and enjoy it.
Ingredients (makes 2)
2/3 Cup Frangelico
1/3 Cup Pinnacle Whipped Vodka
Chocolate Syrup and Sea Salt (for the rims of the glasses)
Make sure your liquors are stored in the freezer the night before serving to ensure they are chilled. Pour the Fangelico and vodka into a large shaker. Shake it like a Polaroid picture!
Dip the rims of your glasses in chocolate syrup then in the sea salt.
Pour and serve.
Happy Hour Friday everybody!
Thanks for making it through a month of blogging with me!
