And just like that … it’s March, and we all want to believe that spring has sprung. Not so, says the Lion! Winter roars through March with gusty winds and unpredictable weather. The biggest snowfall I’ve experienced in Charlotte was the first weekend of April!
As we bid winter good-bye, I give you a “farewell winter” cocktail. Although I’ve never been big on bourbon, my family is, and they’ve brought me over to the dark side with their irresistible bourbon concoctions. Another person big on bourbon is my new Kentucky friend, MK, whom I met at the Southern C Summit @thesouthernc. MK is an expert on all things bourbon! Double your final winter fun with EE’s and MK’s Old Fashioned recipes. And if you want more of MK’s beautiful bourbon concoctions and other fab recipes, go to inthecuriouskitchen.com. Follow her on Instagram too … @inthecuriouskitchen.
Stay tuned for next week’s newsletter! Even though there may be a chill in the air, I am starting to think about Easter and will help you think about it too … little bunny foo foo … here we come!
