Sometimes you just need a good, tasty, girly drink. If you’re me, you sometimes need two good, tasty, girly drinks. I “double fisted” these bad boys in the name of art.  I’m starting a personal photography project titled “leftovers” in which I eat food and then take photos and style whatever is left. There is something so satisfying to see an empty plate with a full belly.

So I drank both of these drinks in about 3 minutes. What a head rush. It had to be done.

I’m a lightweight so I quickly became giggly and started saying ridiculous things. Thankfully, Joe brought me a sandwich from an epic deli and I got something in my stomach to fight with the alcohol and make me coherent again. I’m kidding… I wasn’t that sloppy!

I’ve wanted to make a herb infused simple syrup for a long time so I finally just did it. I don’t know what took me so long, it’s just sugar, water and whatever herb you want.

This is one of my favorite photos from my new leftover series, what do you think? I’m in love. A little red lipstick mark would have been tops! or trashy, I don’t know.

It’s too bad I don’t have any lipstick to give it a shot.

This is the perfect cocktail for winter and for Valentine’s Day. I deem this Blood Orange Rosemary Cocktail the drink of February.

This sunny citrus fruit is perfect to help you forget the snow and to share with your honey.

I’m normally a bourbon girl but for this drink I opted for vodka. Mainly because it was snowing outside and I only had a few shots of vodka left in the house. I need to remedy this with a bottle of bourbon! Pun intended!

I mixed this drink with the help of my fancy OXO Steel Angled Measuring Jigger and my OXO Good Grips Press & Pour Cocktail Shaker. I felt like a real bartender… All that shaking,  pouring and garnishing with fancy herbs and fruit.
