Hope everyone had / is having a happy holiday. I went to my friend Alyssa’s last night for Christmas Eve dinner. She made these delicious orange-peel-infused Manhattans.
And a duck with chestnut stuffing, which Alison is carving.
Alison’s salad of endive, pomegranate seeds, apples, and bleu cheese. And Kathy’s coquitos (Caribbean drink that tastes deceptively non-alcoholic!) in the background.
I think I’m the only one who brought something store-made (wine)! Oh well… food is not my forte.
From night before, Alyssa’s holiday party at Bowery Wine Company. She made these delic gingerbread cupcakes with peppermint-marshmallow frosting and candy cane bits sprinkled on top.
And Bowery Wine Co. bartender made us Cookie Dough martinis. Cookie dough martini FYI = vanilla Vodka, Frangelico and some pink stuff in a bottle labeled 43, which I’d never heard of before. Very tasty!
And after party having some pizza in the Village. Above, Alyss with some random guy we picked up and dragged off with us No, he’s not a random guy; he’s a BWC regular and his name is Dan. Funny, but when I mentioned my blog he revealed he’s friends with the people who run Gaynor Minden pointe shoes.
Okay, happy long (hopefully, for everyone) weekend, you guys!
