This week I read Bon Appetit 25, What to Eat, Drink, Cook in 2013.
Here are four things from the list I’m planning to try, buy or make in the upcoming year:
1. The Paloma, a cocktail with mezcal or tequila, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and club soda. I am a junkie for all things citrus but fresh grapefruit and grapefruit juice are my very favorites. This drink looks so good I may give up margaritas and mojitos.
2. Fresh horseradish. I love horseradish but I’ve never bought horseradish root. Apparently you use a Microplane grater and put the fresh shavings on everything from smoked salmon to ribs. I’m thinking fresh horseradish would be great on a bagel too.
3. Get a stovetop smoker to smoke salt for rubs. Smoked anything is another favorite flavor. Can I smoke a brownie? I’ll have to get this smoker and try.
4. Blondies, which BA says are the new brownies
