Dragon Your Feet
According to the Chinese calendar, today begins the Year of the Dragon (Year of the Water Dragon, according to Wikipedia). It’s considered the luckiest year in the Chinese Zodiac, so I’m hoping the Mega Millions gods and the Shoe Fairy look favorably upon me (and all of you). If you’re celebrating on the East Coast, you’re probably dealing with some wet weather. A pair of rubber-toed, platform, lug soled booties in theme-appropriate red, like these Philip Simon Kevoik Boots (available at amazon.com for $116.76) are an on-trend choice. With their sturdy canvas upper, shearling lining, 4.75 inch heel and .75 inch platform, they say you’re both prepped for the weather and ready to party.
Once the parade is over, and you hit the bar for celebratory cocktails, enjoy a Lucky Dragon or two. Made with CAMUS Elegance VSOP Cognac, Grand Marnier and ginger liqueur, it’s a smooth, slightly sweet-but-spiced way to warm up and wind down.
.5oz Grand Marnier
.25oz ginger liqueur
Combine all ingredients with ice and stir. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with an orange twist.
Remember to enjoy this drink responsibly. Have to many too quickly, and you’ll change your luck for the worse.
