a rosemary whiskey new years

I jumped over the pond this week and came to London to visit by best friend and my dog-nephew Tuna. London is a city that is full of magic and wonder. Something here wakes me up to life- it makes me feel full and adventurous and it’s quite dreamy walking the streets during this time of year. I spent two months here in 2014 and haven’t been back in a year, so I decided to spend both New Years and my birthday here. We’ve got plans at a darling champagne bar called Amuse Bouche for a roaring 20s party. But, beforehand, I’ve got plans to cocktail and toast the year’s end with one of my favorite whiskey drinks.

If you need some cocktail inspiration as you ring in 2016, try this festive and delicious rosemary whiskey cocktail. It’s delightful- and perfectly palatable for your NYE celebration. And, if you need a little bite for your celebration, these Apple Bites are an easy and beautiful addition to any snacky spread.

Also- if you still need gifts for anyone, these LIFT coasters are pretty rad- and a great last minute find. Get them at Alchemy Works in downtown Los Angeles!
