EP 28 - I’m headed to America’s coolest small town, Lititz, PA with my friend and co-host Amanda. We discover a great burger doesn’t have to be fancy and can come from a winnebago of all places. Plus we explore quite a few unique gift shops, a butcher, and a quaint little bakery with a fantastic London Fog. Forgive us our holiday haze as we re-cap our lovely pre-Christmas shopping day and what the new year holds for us in a single word. 

This episode's signature cocktail is the Mistletoe Kiss (http://www.smells-like-home.com/2018/11/the-mistletoe-kiss/) To make yours you will need:

6 oz Vodka

1 oz Lemon Juice

2 oz Rosemary Simple Syrup (boil 1/2 cup sugar with 1/2 cup water until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and add a sprig of rosemary. Seep for 15 minutes and remove rosemary. Cool completely.)

Sparkling Water (we used Topo Chico)

Handful of frozen cranberries and rosemary sprigs for garnish

Mix all ingredients except sparking water and garnishes until well combined. Pour over ice and top with Sparkling water of your choice. For an especially festive cocktail add frozen cranberries an a sprig of rosemary to each glass. Serves 2 to 3 friends so bring them along.
