You guys… It’s so cold in here, I could cut glass.
I’m not even kidding.
And in Vancouver, that means sopping wet, windy and dark.
The moisture just gets into the bone. And not in the sexy way.
I’ve taken to seeking refuge indoors, locked far away from the windows that make up one full wall of my apartment, with the heat cranked, and donning hand-knitted socks from this gem & sweaters that are so old and pilled and stretched out, they have no business being seen anywhere but the dark-by-4pm corners of my laundry room. With the door firmly closed.
TMI: Sometimes I feel the same way about my vagina.
Basically I’m just trying to keep cozy and not freeze my nipples off. Or have them poke an eye out. Because let’s be honest – when it’s this chilly and you have girls as – ahem, ample – as mine, it’s a real risk.
Much like having trouble finding dresses that fit in the waist, the bust AND the ass. Or accidentally recreating a scene from Baywatch while on vacation. Or letting one slip out in an unfortunate wardrobe-malfunction to get free french fries at the drive-thru, at 3am, after consuming oceans of whiskey.
Totally hypothetical, by the way.
I’ve also stored away the Summer Mint Cucumber & Smoky Jalapeneo Margaritas , Gin Old Fashioneds and Sparkling Rhubarb Shrubs in favour of more cozy drinks like the Winter Wonderjam Whiskey Smash, Fire Cider Hot Toddy and Nog-Casian.
Oh yeah! And today’s recipe: A maple whiskey sour with sage simple syrup.
Cozy? Hell yeah. Boozy? You betcha. Likely to land you in one of the afore mentioned precarious situations? It’s entirely possible.
Cozy is clearly the over-arching theme of this post. That, and inappropriate jokes about my breasts. And it was inspired by a group of bloggers I consider dear friends. The Connecting Over Cocktails club (#FBCConnectingOverCocktails). These peeps got mad skillz and I’m so grateful they’re part of our community. I really do have the best friends in the world – they’re supportive, talented, inspiring, challenge me to do and be better both on the blog and in life, and best of all, like to socialize over 1 (or 8) drinks. And I’m thrilled to share their “cozy” concoctions with you here today as well. Feel free to rub up against them – I do. They like it.

And if you want to cozy up to my ass (literally or figuratively), find me on Instagram or Pinterest or Twitter or Facebook. I’d love to have a drink with ya! And so would my ass. Though steer clear of my tatas – you’ve been justly warned.
Lascivious lover of good, “ethical” food & wine.
