Even though Sparky and I will be enjoying a

And while this version of making-do is in fact quite delicious, it just wasn't the perfection I was looking for. Plus, I wanted to drink this OUT of the house, not just while I was building blocks with the two year old or coloring with the five year old. Last October, I hit the proverbial jackpot at my good friend Kim's rehearsal dinner when the lovelies at The Ritz* knew what the hell I was talking about when I attempted to order my cocktail. FINALLY. So now I can enjoy it anytime I want, where ever I may be. And you can too. Cheers!
*I highly recommend the roast beef sandwich at R&D (the best you'll ever taste unless my mom makes you one) and if you feel like traveling back in time to a swanky club of the 50's visit The Ritz. Both are in Newport Beach.
