Warning: I wrote this post after concocting and taste testing this cocktail, so my apologies in advance for any typos. As always, I blame it on the booze.
I’m obsessing over cara cara oranges. These citrus beauties may look like ordinary oranges on the outside but inside they are the prettiest peachy-pink and have a delicious, juicy sweetness. It looks, tastes and smells like the promise of spring. Cara caras are so appropriate for this season of love - cara translates across languages as beloved, friend, my dear one, face to face.

It's a valid question, especially at this time of year.
I'm not evaluating myself until I'm sober. Maybe January second I will take a look at what I am doing where wine is concerned.

I recently hit a new low (or high, depending on how you look at it). I smuggled the last half of a margarita out of a Mexican restaurant after my one-year-old's restless tantrum at the table forced my husband and me to make a swift and early exit.
