Writing a novel is slow and tedious, delightful and fulfilling. It takes years and draft after draft. Ron Carlson recommends that you write until you can’t stand it anymore, then stay 20 minutes. Do that. Then, go mix yourself one of these to celebrate…
The California Distraction
Rosemary simple syrup
(Boil ½ cup sugar, ½ cup water, and 1 small bunch of rosemary. Let cool.)
3 ounces gin
2 ounces fresh blood orange juice
Champagne or prosecco
Combine gin, juice, and 1 tablespoon rosemary simple syrup. Top off with champagne and a sprig of rosemary to garnish.
Sit in the sun for 15 minutes. Now take the rest of that cocktail and get back to work.
