Garden & Gun (December 2013)
Sure, chicken is in our holiday survival bunker.
But so is whiskey. And it's already come in handy this year.
For Thanksgiving last week, we stayed in D.C. Our friends Trevor and Owen offered to host, and a crowd of nine of us gathered for dinner. We were asked to bring cocktails and dessert. We considered a second run at the pumpkin-y Pilgrimage Cocktail, which we had liked very much. But we always love an opportunity to try a new recipe.
So we chose this Holiday Whiskey Punch from Garden & Gun.
First, let's talk about the magazine. How is it, exactly, that we haven't yet talked about Garden & Gun with you??
We made mention of it over a year ago, and haven't quite circled back to it yet. If you haven't seen an issue before, the content is a mix of food, sport and Southern culture. There's not quite as much food in each issue as we might like (which is perhaps one of the reasons we haven't cooked from it before). But the magazine is beautiful and the photographry is absolutely georgous. If you have someone on your holiday list who loves magazines but might enjoy something a bit more unusual, give them Garden & Gun. Seriuosly. We have so many friends who have subscribed in the past few years, and they all love it as much as we do.
Don't worry, though -- there are no guns in this punch. Let's talk about it.
