Cocktails I Kinda Want to Drink
Due to Pinterest and my love of bacon, I came across this drink. First I was like “What? This is just plain whack.” But quickly realized, “No this is genius!” Meat - it’s not what’s for dinner, it’s what’s to drink!

Maple Bacon Manhattan

First make Bacon Bourbon. Cook 3-4 strips of bacon until crispy. Add the strips to your bottle of choice. Let steep for 24 hours. Strain through cheesecloth and refrigerate.

2 oz infused Knob Creek Bacon Bourbon
1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth
1/2 oz 100% pure Maple Syrup
1 Dash Angostura Bitters

Combine all ingredients over ice in a mixing pint. Stir well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. More bacon? Garnish with a crispy strip. Serve with a brownie!

The Internet is full of meat-themed cocktails; I even came across a foie gras martini and a beef drink avec veal consommé ice cubes! You can really go hog wild.

Spring Fashion – Crochet
What is it about that boho ‘70s crochet look that we just can’t get enough of? I saw this trend three years ago and it continues to reign. Tops, bags, headbands – get into the crochet! Heck, you can waltz down to Heaven Stitch and Design and learn to make your next hot item yourself!

One outstanding designer that I have to mention is Anna Kosturova from BC. Well known in the international fashion world, with her crochet swimsuits featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and FHM, she’s a wonderful Vancouver female entrepreneur success story. Check it out. annakosturova.com
