The Classic Manhattan

Behold The Classic Manhattan.  Sitting perfectly atop an old, old, old cocktail book from my great grandmother, this libation is truly one for the ages, to be enjoyed for years to come.  I’m here to tell you that bourbon-soaked cherries were practically made to be paired with the finest whiskey, and they are just as addictive when eaten alone as they are in a tasty cocktail (you’ve been forewarned). 

When serving, I typically use large round ice cubes, but of course if you are a purist and refuse to let your Manhattan be watered down, opt for whiskey rocks.  Enjoy!  Truly, MKR

Tie A Scarf On It

If anything is off the shoulder, you can count me in.  I mean a dress like this is just so comfortable, so easy and so chic.  It only made sense to complete the look with a bandana silk scarf and my favorite Balenciaga wedges.  I’ve actually had this scarf since Christmas; it was a gift from my husband, and I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear it.  This seemed like the perfect opportunity to channel an inner safari-chic vibe for a super easy summertime look.  Truly, MKR
