Here Ye, Beer Ye

ALE yeah, turning 21 is reason to celebrate.  And in the US, adulthood means you can legally raise a glass.  In honor of Denver’s craft brewing industry and those whose HOP(e)S and dreams are set by beer, I present two of my best BREW.ha.ha cookie sets.

Alaska

She wanted birthday cookies that were centered around the things he likes.  They have great taste (…as do these cookies).  I must admit that I rarely make the same cookies again and find customer’s diverse requests so interesting.  The hand knucks are new to me; learn something every day.  So happy to make Alaska cookies; we had the most fabulous time taking our kids to Denali NP and beyond a few summers ago.  Stunning.  Jaw-dropping gorgeous.  All that in more, Alaska!

“Be In Good Spirits” on your Birthday

When you turn 50, all bets are off.  You can ‘whine a little, WINE a lot!’  Milestone birthdays often bring around self medication in this socially acceptable form. Um.  Maybe any birthday???  So, here is my ode to said alcoholic category;  they may not all be considered “spirits” but they are all libations of a sort.  Happy 50th Akemi!  May your second half of the century be even better.
