January Recipe of the Month

Today I had such a great surprise......I received a box from author Jane Porter that I won from her JaneBlog post, goodies from Hawaii.  In the box was a recipe card so I'm going to share with all of you.  The recipes are  from Jane's latest women's fiction Easy on the Eyes in which her heroine is Tiana, a Hollywood media celebrity.

About the book:

At 38, Tiana Tomlinson has made it. America adores her as one of the anchors of America Tonight, a top-rated nightly entertainment and news program. But even with the trappings that come with her elite lifestyle, she feels empty. Tiana desperately misses her late husband Keith, who died several years before. And in a business that thrives on youth, Tiana is getting the message that her age is starting to show and certain measures must be taken if she wants to remain in the spotlight. It doesn’t help that at every turn she has to deal with her adversary—the devilishly handsome, plastic surgeon to the stars, Michael O'Sullivan. But a trip away from the Hollywood madness has consequences that could affect the rest of her life.

Tiana’s Holiday Hollywood Sidecar

¾ ounces cointreau
¾ ounces brandy
¾ ounces lemon juice

In a shaker combine all of the above and shake vigorously.

Wet rim of a 3 to 4 ounce cocktail glass and place on a lightly sugared plate.

Strain liquor into glass and serve. Add festive curling ribbon to the glass and serve.
