We had two really warm days this week. By “really warm,” I mean, 50 degrees in Michigan in January. They were promptly and predictably bookended by several days of snow and freezing temperatures. It’s the kind of weather that makes me think about….well, running away to Tahiti. But also biscuits.
I love biscuits. Pillowy, fluffy, savory biscuits, dripping with butter and all the promise of delicious flavor conveniently transported to my mouth in one hand-sized package.

It’s my first week back to work after Christmas vacation. I know, I’m lucky I even get a Christmas vacation, but still, it’s hard to ease back into the regular day-to-day after a break.

This week’s cocktail is definitely my favorite thus far, and not just because I’m a huge fan of mojitos. It was also one of those Wednesdays that really, really called for a drink. I can’t wait til summer because this is going to be a perfect “sit outside on a sunny patio” kind of drink.
This fizzy mojito is a combination of the usual ingredients (lime juice, simple syrup, mint, rum), it also includes a dash of bitters and some sparkling wine. Because I was lazy and/or out of some ingredients, I subbed just a sprinkling of sugar for the syrup, which worked, and did a mixture of dark and coconut rum, which really worked.

Remember, life is better bubbly. And happy new year!
