I’m still celebrating the launch of A Ghost in the Kitchen.
I wonder if Pip will ever learn how to cook. It seems like she always lands in hot water, but I don’t think that’s what Granny Phanny had in mind. As if Pip didn’t find enough distractions on her own, now there’s a ghost in Granny’s kitchen!
Sheiks and Shebas, those of you who have scheduled in the near future, and those who have already hosted my book launch have my heartfelt thanks! I hope you could tell, because I’ve found that WordPress has been eating a lot of my comments when I visit your stop on the trolley. I apologize for that.
Yes, I’m celebrating, so I tried to make a real life Roaring Twenties champagne cocktail! This one is a perfect match for the 1920s and for me. In that era, lemons were a big deal. So was slang. This drink is named the Bee’s Knees.
A 20s Tidbit
Most of you know that this time period was also the Prohibition Era. Making or selling alcoholic beverages was illegal. That didn’t put a stop to anything, particularly flappers and their goofs (boyfriends). Gin was one of the most common of homemade liquors. This 1920s cocktail uses honey and lemon to help with the bitterness of that homemade hooch. So, a Bee’s Knees is gin, lemon juice, honey (hence the name), and a float of champagne on top.
Saturday, I’ll be visiting the virtual bar at No Facilities, hosted by Dan Antion. You can guess what the bartender will serve me.
Launching “A Ghost in the Kitchen” has been so much fun that I’m including the book fair portion again today! Check out all the fabulous authors. It’s pos-i-lutely orchid!
