That's Carrie's Easter Gin Martini. She swears it goes well with foil wrapped chocolate.
Easter is magical even to us hard souled ne'er-do-wells because it is a combination of all things important to little infantile hearts: Tragic Mythical Death at the hands of Villains, Flowers, Fancy Chocolate in Shapes you can only get once a year, and Fuzzy Baby Animals. Any holiday with this combination is guaranteed to be a success.
Possible New Holiday Ideas: Martin Luther King Day, with black and white chain shaped candies, lots of magnolias, baby doves.
Anne Boleyn Day: red roses, hard candies in the shape of royal jewels (we could wear them!), cocker spaniel puppies.
Ghandi Day: Lotus blossoms, cow shaped caramels, peacocks and calves.
John Lennon Day: Dandelions, pink colored sugar elephants and peanut butter filled globes, kittens.
Chico Mendes Day: Orchids, cinnamon and chili spiced Brazil shaped chocolates, baby parrots. Cause adult parrots are sort of scary.
Euripides Day: peonies, almond and pistachio wafers shaped like dogs, baby lambs and goats.
Tsar Nicholas II Day: Chamomiles and daisies, white chocolate revolvers and horses, bear cubs.
