12 Days of Christmas Event - Day Three!
It's Day Three - Welcome Back!
Today's theme is favorite drink! This is going against the grain a little bit, becuase anyone that knows me well, knows that I love a margarita. I make them from scratch, with fresh pressed lime and orange and I am always trying to perfect it. I think mine are better than most.
However, about a month ago my husband and I toasted my beloved mother, who passed away right before Thanksgiving last year, with her favorite drink - THE OLD FASHIONED. We were astounded that it was such a well concocted drink. With hints of orange and cherry, fine burbon and bitters. So we've been on the hunt for the best old fashioned ever since. Here's the recipe.
1 sugar cube, or 1 teaspoon agave nectar
3 dashes Angostura bitters
2 ounces high quality bourbon
1 tablespoon club soda
1 thin strip of orange peel
In a rocks glass, combine the sugar cube, bitters and club soda. Muddle to a paste. Stir in the bourbon. Add ice and garnish with a two-inch strip of orange peel. One large cube or ice ball, don't water down with too much ice. Enjoy!

Golden Alexander is trapped in a nightmare.
Trying to flee her hallucination of a demon, she runs heart first into the brooding alpha male she’s been dreaming about for years, and then her nightmare really begins.
Kris Pietka is done with women...he’s broken. But when he meets Golden, an overwhelming need to protect her tests everything he thought he knew about himself, and the paranormal.
A bond forged centuries ago thrusts them together as they search for a way to break an ancient Druid curse prophesying their demise. Racing against the clock, they travel from Vermont, to the Carpathian Mountains in Poland, and the Scottish Highlands in search of answers and a way to break the curse.
But something evil watches—it covets, and time is running out.
Will fate allow love to prevail against unbeatable odds, or will Golden wake to find it was all a delusion?
