Its the holiday season! Christmas is coming! Most importantly, its so cold outside! Post a comment if you’re like me and just about ready to wrap up the year by staying indoors and just hibernating. Maybe, wrap a blanket, hold a glass of wine, and just Netflix it through.
I’m a lover of outdoors, but only when its warm. I always joke about friends who enjoy the cold are polar bears. Because they get out when the temperatures are low. Well, if there’s a valid reference, I guess I’m a grizzly bear. I’m hyper when the weather is warm. I’m pretty sure my Chihuahua, Cupid agrees with me too.
My husband, the polar bear, is excited about winter though. He can’t wait to get out on the mountains and start snowboarding. Here’s what I told him: “If you leave me at home, I promise you that you can come back to warm meals.” He enjoys us doing activities together. I enjoy it too. We do almost everything together, and I love it! Because I enjoy trying out new things. But sliding down snowy mountains? Probably not my cup of tea. I prefer a pumpkin spice latte in my PJs in this weather. 😉 (PUNS!)
Along with the cold weather, comes trying out new recipes, LOTS of cooking/baking, and plenty of home parties, I hope. After all, Idaho’s cold weather drags from November to early May. That’s a whole lot of time to pass before we can get out near the water for some good fishing!
Things that I stock up during winter? Eggnog, wine, vodkas, rum, bourbon. Hmmmm.. Yum. Well, I did mention baking above right? I’m using them for my fruit cakes… and… drinks… and.. cocktails. I love a good cocktail. Cosmo is like my go to drink when I’m out and ready to party. Wine is more of drinking to pair with food and winding down for the week.

What do I think of it:
I was expecting a small stick that could mash my fruits & herbs to release their flavors in my cocktails but I was pleasantly surprised at how solidly built this thing was. There’s a little bit of weight to the muddler due to the materials used to make it. I’m quite sure you can use this to mash other softer foods as well, maybe to make a herb butter or even herbal infusions.
It is so easy to use, take it out and mash it. It has a nice wide enough base that allows you to move through whatever you have in your glass quickly.
The best part for me, after a day’s of entertaining, when I’m exhausted with a full day of prep, is that I can put this into the dishwasher with the rest of the dishes and I’m done. Especially in the cold weather now, I really hate having to be in contact with tap water.
This is truly good quality, the materials will not rust or peel, which is a big concern especially when preparing beverages.
It has a beautiful stainless steel finish that will match any bar accessories that you already own. I can’t wait to show this off during our Christmas parties.
