What better theme to start the new year with, than “new?”
For years I’ve been wanting to make a custom-flavored gin. Santa obliged this Christmas, and in cahoots with my husband, put a gin-making starter kit under the tree. The infusion process began today with a juniper berry bath. Tomorrow, we’ll start experimenting with the botanicals to create something new. (And tasty. We hope.)
(A little cardamom here, some black pepper there, a smidge of lavender or lime … the possibilities are endless.)
Other visions of new we liked:
- The new year as a blank sheet.
- A new day in Iceland.
- New direction!
- Bursts of light.
- Cuteness of newness.
- Brand new robins. Get us a worm.
