Winter Sets in at Marjorie
When I think of what is enjoyable to eat and drink in the chilly, often wet winter months in Seattle, surprisingly for me, it isn’t comfort food. I so enjoy eating clean, fresh compositions, often pairing them with a glass that sparkles or a crisp, clean cocktail. It puts a spring in my step, and I feel lighter as I move through the winter months, hoping to “break out” of the cabin fever, not bury myself deeper.
I am always struck by how a sophisticated cocktail is the perfect pairing with food. Before I knew, I thought only wine, but as I grow wiser, I am well aware that food goes with many things. Cocktails, especially the Marjorie Vesper (pictured above) go wonderfully with food. This particular pairing feels like a clean, fresh start for the New Year.
