It has been the best weekend. We stayed home a lot. We went to see Birdman and loved it- you should check it out. It’s sure to be an Oscar contender. We made some great meals and we also started watching Transparent, which is *awesome* after a couple of episodes. I’m excited to be back […]

The Cocktail Diraires: Cranberry French 75 with Doug Fir Eau de Vie

Holiday Cranberry Champagne Cocktail | PDXfoodlove

I suppose this drink doesn’t really resemble a French 75 that much anymore. But that’s where I started, so I’m keeping the name. Also, hooray!

Ramos Gin Fizz | PDXfoodlove

It’s Sunday evening, and I’m mixing cocktail/making a huge mess again, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m fresh off a fun weekend full of activity.
