Whew. What a week! Good thing we have alcohol to ease the pain.


This week’s drink comes from a recent eBay score: A fantastic bar book with a wooden cover called Here’s How from 1941. There are some great drinks in this book, and a ton of little illustrations which I love.


The drink also has the fabulous name of Whiskey Daisy. Love it.

  1. Put these ingredients in a highball glass, fill with crushed ice, stir until glass is frosted.

One thing that was actually really nice this week is that we have a much happier baby!


Laughing like crazy. So cute.


Even Tom can’t hide his grin.



Similar contemplation faces. Hilarious.

“How is it?”

“Good, actually. Tastes kind of like a whiskey sour, but better.”

The Verdict: Good!

From The Tasting Notes:

Tastes like a whiskey sour, but with with a fruitier taste and smell. Good, and one we will be making again!
