For those of you unfamiliar with the project please let me explain. Seeking inspiration and some discipline I decided to begin a group that photographs a food item or recipe beginning with the letter in the alphabet corresponding to the week we are on. With this project I hope to see an improvement in my photography skills and become more familiar with a variety of food ingredients and dishes.
Of course there have been a few weeks in there where I simply scanned through images I have previously shot and hoped I could find some that start with the right letter. But when I push myself to shoot something intentionally that’s when I learn the most and am most satisfied.
Last week was “G” (moving on to “H” next week) and feeling particularly inspired thanks to an incredible workshop with Penny de los Santos, I set up my shot.
Using Grendadine as my “G” ingredient I made a cocktail called the Gin and Sin – which I think earns me extra points for using the letter “G” twice.
This festive cocktail is a wonderful way to bring even more cheer to this joyous time of year. Slightly sweet and sour and completely refreshing. I can’t help but think that the sparkling cranberries from Heidi at 101 cookbooks would look lovely floating on the surface.
See how much fun our flickr group is? Sipping cocktails while taking photos – join the party!
