Cocktail of choice

Do you have a signature cocktail that you always order? In Glamour magazine's book, "30 Things Everyone Should Know Before Turning 30," they recommend you have a handle on your signature drink before entering your third decade. Sure—I have a signature wine (sauvignon blanc), but a signature cocktail? This has yet to be determined.

I will say, during my time in Boston, the Au Provence at Eastern Standard was my drink of choice. A mix of vodka, simple syrup and lime juice, it was a spruced up version of a gimlet.

Before I commit to the gimlet as my new signature drink, is there a cocktail you'd recommend? What's your favorite drink?

(Note: The clock is ticking—T minus 3(ish) weeks until the big 3-0!)


  1. I love a good bloody mary! However, I did fall in love with the Itty Bitty Pretty at Penrose that has vodka, honey, lemon and basil. So refreshing!

  2. Ooh, the Itty Bitty Pretty sounds so good! Lemon and basil? Those are two of my favorite ingredients.

    Did you order the plate of pickles while you were there, too? I did!
