Welcome to a special episode of the GRCH.
The Witch’s Jellybeantini
1 part vodka, ½ part each Black Sambuca and Cassis (or any berry liquor), 2 parts cranberry juice
Shake with ice, mutter an incantation, and enjoy.
Bulb forcing tips: All hyacinths force well, but Single Early and Triumph are the best tulip classes for home forcing. Do try other tazetta narcissus than the common Ziva for forcing. Old House Gardens and Brent and Becky’s have some great alternatives: Erlicheer, Grand Primo, Golden Rain, and Grand Soleil d'Or are some of the types. P.S. The witch is a bit optimistic—it takes hyacinths and tulips a good 8 weeks or better to come into bloom after they emerge from the chilling period.Posted by Elizabeth Licata on October 31, 2010 at 5:00 am, in the category Garden Rant Cocktail Hour.
