It’s that time of year! Phew! A whopping 95 degrees yesterday, and it’s only going to get hotter in my neck of the woods – or desert – should I say. The benefit of living in the valley of Los Angeles is the amazing mountain views and sunny mornings without the marine layer. The drawback is weather so hot in the summer you could fry an egg on the sidewalk.
Let’s face it. I’m no mixologist. I had never even heard of vanilla vodka until 3 months ago. I am terrible with liquor and am just really beginning to understand my way around wine. So when I was thinking of a possible cocktail named The Great Gatsby I knew someone, somewhere had to have already created it.
