It isn’t that there hasn’t been plenty of Eating, drinking, and being Keri of late.
It is that there hasn’t been much writing about it.
Truthfully, new recipes have been few and far between – low carb laziness has set in.
Lots of ginormous slabs of meat grilled or sautéed in butter or coconut oil. Piles and piles of salads. Eggs all ways, for days and days. Zoodles until I fear repetitive motion syndrome might cripple my wrists forever.
Dry white wine, dry white wine, martini…. Repeat.
Not so much with the exciting, blog-worthy meals and drinks.
EXCEPT – that isn’t totally true.
Because let’s face it – ALL FOOD IS AWESOME!!
Andplusalso – WHO DOESN’T LOVE A NICE DRINK?
So, with that in mind – and in horror honor of my last week as a not-40-year-old (DEAR GOD,) I give you:
KERI’S FINAL WEEK OF PRE-OVER-THE-HILL DINNERS AND DRINKS!!
Excited? Of course you are not.
We are now officially within 7 days of the actual date, so I figure that I am entitled to get the last week of my 30s started off with a bang. Keri’s favorite cocktail EVER is, of course, the Revolver. Alas, I will be saving any potential for higher carb cheats for closer to the momentous occasion. (After all, this celebration is a marathon, not a sprint people.)
So to keep my hankerings at bay, I have concocted a handy faux version that shares a lot of the same flavors, without the Kahlua carb bomb.
Presenting, the Low-carb Revolver.
WHAT YOU NEED AND DO:
3 ounces Bulleit (or bourbon of your choice)
1 tablespoon sugar free caramel flavored syrup
1 dash bitters
1 or 2 tablespoons cold coffee (optional)
Combine all ingredients into shaker filled with ice and shake well to mix and chill. Pour into a chilled martini glass.
That gets things started right, I’d say. Tomorrow I will fill you in on what I am whipping up for dinner tonight.
