apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.

I’m in on this feud and I have chosen my side.

MARA WILSON, YOU HAVE MY SWORD.

SHAKE is out this week, and the fine folks at the Mason Shaker have given us the go-ahead to share a lovely summer cocktail recipe with you all - read, drink, and be merry!

The FRENCHIE: A good muddle and a quick shake infuse French Rosé with the essential flavors of summer in this Francophile’s version of a sangria.

The Particulars: (Makes two drinks)

  • 10 shots of French Rosé wine
  • 2 shots of Cointreau
  • 1 cube cane sugar
  • 6 fresh raspberries (plus 4 for garnish)
  • 6 fresh blueberries (plus 4 for garnish)
  • 4 fresh strawberries (plus 2 for garnish)
  1. Add the cane sugar cube, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries to the shaker.
  2. Muddle the ingredients in the bottom of the shaker until thoroughly crushed and the sugar has mostly dissolved.
  3. Add the Rosé, Cointreau, and ice to above the level of the liquid and shake briefly for 3 seconds.
  4. Strain the mixture into tumblers (not tumblrs!) containing large cubes of ice and garnish with remaining berries.
