day 160: spiced passion

365 projectJoanne ShihComment
Overdid it with the colors today... I clearly haven't figured out how to do background color yet! But my intention was to show that the drink is an opaque-ish off-white, which is why I felt I needed some color behind the glasses. Success in that regard? Also, I learned that I should probably not watercolor over my Copic brush pen, even though it's waterproof ink, it still bled a little bit.

Doing "research" for cocktail month is hands-down way more fun than my research for last month (aka, Googling for flower quotes that didn't make me cringe). I wanted to do a tequila cocktail today, so I did some searching for fun tequila drinks. This is one of them! Horchata + passionfruit + cinnamon (+ tequila)? Sign me up! Also, the name is great. May your passion always be full of spice ;)

I should probably throw some kind of cocktail party at the end of this month to taste all the new recipes I find (and also the tried-and-true ones, of course).

Original recipe here!
