I started a personal photography project titled “leftovers” in which I eat food and then take photos and style whatever is left. There is something so satisfying to see an empty plate with a full belly.

So I drank both of these drinks in about 3 minutes. What a head rush. It had to be done.

I’ve wanted to make a rosemary infused simple syrup for a long time so I finally just did it. I don’t know what took me so long, it’s just sugar, water and whatever herbs you want.

This is the perfect cocktail for winter and for Valentine’s Day. I dub this Blood Orange Rosemary Cocktail the “drink of February.”

This citrus fruit is perfect to help you forget the snow and pretend it’s June!

I’m normally a bourbon girl but for this drink, I opted for vodka. Mainly because it was snowing outside and I only had a few shots of vodka left in the house. I still think vodka made the most sense for this drink. 

I mixed this drink with the help of a fancy jigger and cocktail shaker. 

I felt like a real bartender…

All that shaking, pouring, and garnishing with fancy herbs and pretty fruit!
