I write a regular column on green-organic beverages for the new & awesome mag, SIP Northwest. It's an informative publication for anyone interested in sipping and supping across the Pacific Northwest. My most recent article is on one of my favorite cool season habits - boozy milk cocktails and egg-y apertifs. Years ago, my friend Colin threw a New Years day brunch with his parents (who were visiting from Napa) and reminded me about the luxury of a Ramos Gin Fizz. It's an annual tradition for them, but many moons ago I had my first sip of RGF at Freeman's in NYC with some in-the-know foodie girlfriends. All these years, I couldn't for the life of me remember what the name of the drink was, but it's floral tone and egg white finish haunted me. Thank God for Colin, because after that recent New Years I was hooked. I have since adopted the tradition of imbibing them for any celebratory occasion.
As for boozy milk drinks, the introduction to the article says it all. You can take the girl out of Long Island.......... To purchase a copy of the magazine's digital issue OR to subscribe (please do!) visit SIP Northwest.
