I’m taking a break from drinking until the end of the month, but I made this video a couple weeks ago when I was still over-indulging. It’s based on a drink I discovered at my friend’s wedding in June and subsequently enjoyed most for the summer. I’ve since added bubbly and apple cider to make it a fun larger scale harvest punch, but I will have to share that recipe with you another time. For now, this super simple bourbon and ginger could not be easier to make and it goes down dangerously well. I love it as a transitional summer-to-fall cocktail, and I hope you will, too!
Bourbon and Ginger
3 parts bourbon (I like Bulliet)
2 parts ginger ale (I like Fever Tree)
a couple of maraschino cherries (Jack Rudy bourbon cherries would be great, or Luxardo – which is the name I’m trying to think of in the video – would also work)
Fill a glass three quarters with ice, add the ingredients, stir, and enjoy!
Fast forward to now, September, and he is no longer sick but he still will not kiss me. He admitted that he’s afraid of getting sick again and that’s why he avoids it. I can’t ask him to kiss me because it just makes him not want to even more. I’ve tried to explain that if neither of us is sick, then he won’t get sick, but my words have no effect.
I miss kissing him, and I’m tired of still doing sexual things without kissing. I want the foreplay, but there’s none. He won’t even kiss my hand or cheek. He says that I need to give him more time, so I’m trying to be okay with not being okay, but it’s difficult for me. I hope you can give me some words of advice. — Not Sick of Kissing
