New! Sweet Ginger Girl, a Drink to Warm Your Winter

A Sweet Ginger Girl in a blue-tinted glass.

I set up my first blog more than a decade ago and called it Blue Ginger Girl. I had fun setting it up. But then I couldn't think of anything to blog about: Imagine that!

A Cranberry-Orange Drink for the Holidays

Some drinks just taste like Christmas - or Valentine's Day. A Brandy Old Fashioned Sweet — popular here in Wisconsin — is one of them.

"The Faraway" from Christine Cooks is another.

Made with orange juice, cranberry juice, vodka and lime, it sounded so good, I had a difficult time waiting until Christmas Eve to make it. I made a pitcher that night and another on Christmas Day. I added a pinch of sugar and it was sublime. We finished off a nearly empty bottle of Absolut in the process.

You can read about the drink's provenance and the measures of ingredients at Christine's blog.

I highly recommend it.
