Whiskey in a Teacup

Whiskey in a Teacup

If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen my post from this morning highlighting the new Brenne Whisky. What I love about this whiskey is that it combines the bite of the South's favorite drink with the elegance of French distilling (this single malt scotch is made in Cognac, France).

If you follow me on Instagram, then you've no doubt seen pictures of my favorite green smoothie bowl peppering my feed. I have this bowl every single weekday morning for breakfast, and have been doing so for the past 2 years.
