Making a Cookbook Part VII: Cocktails

My husband loves to read and experiment with different libations. We tease him that if his current job doesn’t work out he would make an awesome bartender. Not sure about all of that risky business, but he sure does make some good drinks.

The day we shot the cocktails for the cookbook Gary could not believe that it took six hours to snap pictures of six cocktails. The time was worth it.

The cocktails are so refreshing looking. My favorite photo of the shoot that day was the Peach Sangria. What a perfect beverage for a warm summer day.

Although we enjoy cocktails, red wine is our beverage of choice.


When we do have a cocktail my favorite is Gary’s Cosmo. We have a routine of enjoying this cocktail every Wednesday. Weird, I know, but it breaks up the week by having something to look forward to.

Our mascot, Frenchie – a life-sized macaron, was so excited to have all of his friends join him at the 4th Annual Cupcake Eating Contest!
