I’m Jen. The voice, home cook, mixologist, and amateur photographer behind this blog.
I’m a Midwest gal at heart living in the Northwoods of Wisconsin since 2014, where I cook, eat, and dream up craft cocktails with locally grown, fresh ingredients.
Apéritif Friday is more about a feeling or a moment versus a location or a specific day. You can celebrate Friday in the kitchen in winter, on your patio while the snow melts in the springtime, around the fire pit in the fall, or most earnestly on a pontoon boat putting along a lake in the summertime. The location and the day matter little; it’s the people, conversation, music, drinks, and food that drive the Apéritif Friday spirit.
Pull up a chair, grab a cocktail, and join me as I unwind from the work week with an apéritif, the French word meaning “an alcoholic drink taken before a meal as an appetizer.”
