Where did my weekend go? It was packed with the opening of a new Pop Up Downtown Dog Park, wrapping up our voter registration concert on Thursday night and prepping for a night of mayhem at Elsewhere’s annual fundraising extravaganza! If you need a lesson or two about burning the candle at both ends – I charge an hourly rate for consultation.
I had some friends over on Saturday night (before and of course, after) the party at Elsewhere for cocktails and snacks. I kept it easy and made a ginger & lemon cocktail and a mixed mushroom and stinky cheese flatbread with truffle oil. It took almost no time to prepare – which left me time to nap and clean! This was a good investment because I was way to tired to clean on Sunday after our wild night out!
Crystalized ginger can be found at The Fresh Market and I advise you to stock up on fun liquors for creative beverages! Domaine de Canton is a great ginger liquor!
Enjoy at your next cocktail hour!
