A Somm's Winter G+T
Infuse approx 2oz of fresh spruce tips in to a bottle of dry London gin (Bombay or Beefeater) for 24hrs
(May infuse longer, however, be aware the longer the infusion, the more bitter your gin will become from the pine resin, etc.)
Strain spruce tips, needles, etc. from gin + rebottle
- Shake 2oz (per person) of infused gin with ice
- Pour into large Burgundy wine glass
- Top with 4oz of delicious Cava -- like this one!

This week we nearly broke the internet with a Thanksgiving dish that a friend of mine created for our segment on a popular local daytime television show I regularly appear on.
Chef Corey Meier, from Create Catering, whipped up an English Muffin stuffing that made our talk show host, Jason Matheson, from The Jason Show 'oooohh + ahhhh' more than any other food segment as we chatted delicious Thanksgiving sides coupled to a variety of wines perfectly paired to the dishes.

Ramona ruby grapefruit/wine spritzer from Italy! You guys, I LOVE this canned spritzer so much. It has seriously become one of my favorite things to drink this summer.
