A Haiku or Two, on Bourbon

October 18, 2014

Haiku52:
Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats. 

Apple Peel Bourbon

Sarah:

Shop the Story

things i’d rather drink:
rosé, tequila, rum, gin,
dirty street water.

Marian:

We'd drink it, mixed with
ginger, in red cups. "Game Day"
was just an excuse.
