This week: It’s Complicated. I remember in high school, I’d eat like two navel oranges a day. Peeling the perfect orange really brings me back.
And I’ve used some of my favorite flavors (bourbon, maple, and orange), in this simple cocktail, because that’s what home should be. Inspired by Jake, played by Alec Baldwin, grabbing the lady parts of his ex-wife, post-coital, and declaring: “Home Sweet Home.”
The Home Sweet Home Cocktail
- 2 ounces bourbon
- .5 ounce maple syrup
- 3 hard shakes of orange bitters
- Splash soda water
- Stir, serve over ice with orange peel
