Smoky Potato-Pickled Tomato Bites and Savory Cocktails

Smoky Potato-Pickled Tomato Bites and Savory Cocktails

Greg Henry of SippitySup was one of the first people who welcomed me into the food blogging community a couple of years ago, just before I started Cooking On The Weekends.

I loved SippitySup immediately, and it’s no wonder that since I met Greg, he’s had his first two cookbooks published: Savory Pies and Savory Cocktails.  I love them both — like his blog, the books are full with stunning photography, incredibly creative recipes and magnificent writing.

I will quickly admit that I’m no mixologist, and I’m not a big drinker.  That said, Savory Cocktails really caught my attention, for the recipes inside this book are all brilliant blends of flavors, ranging from sour, to spicy, to smoky, to rich, and the list goes on.
