It looks like the warm weather felt under-appreciated and hit the bricks, but that doesn't make the weekend any less exciting (especially if you're about eight episodes behind on Revenge).
For tonight's happy hour, I'm delighted to attend Wine Riot, a four-hour free-for-all with 250 types of wine at Union Station to pick up some pointers for your at-home wine nights - the sacrifices I make!
But if you're not at this or any other riot, don't you worry. I have a great happy hour for you - from soup to nuts, er... prosecco to feta - courtesy of the lovely Lilliam!
At a team building evening that turned into team building wee-morning-hours, Lilliam fed me and our colleagues some of the finest food I've ever had the pleasure of wolfing down between drinks. And the drinks weren't too shabby either.
With the help of her loyal assistant (aka husband, Amit), Lill served cocktails made with three parts prosecco to one part homemade limoncello. Garnished with a few blueberries, it combined my two loves - food and sparkly drinks.
But in her weak attempts to soak up some of the alcohol with food (fail), Lill made whipped feta, a recipe she created based on a similar dish at The Purple Pig. I haven't been, but can't imagine it's better. I distinctly broke lady rules and had upwards of four pieces.
I hope you'll enjoy these treats this weekend - the recipe is below. Send me recipes, pics and stories from your happy hour, and they might show up in a future post!
