In this transitional period, I'm a big fan of provisions that delicately toe the line between late Summer and early Fall — dishes like slow-cooker braised chicken with early girl tomatoes, or this scotch whisky cocktail recipe I recently discovered. Its orange dreamsicle-like front notes remind me of the last season's dog days.
At the same time, cinnamon and warming scotch finish remind me of Fall's impending arrival. Keep reading for a cocktail recipe that works between seasons.
Although the answer isn't definite, the book FYI: Does Size Matter? 15 Questions We Aren't Afraid to Answer lends an important clue. In 1578, the word appeared in the book The historie of man. It read: "A certaine Glandulous part, called Thimus, which in Calues...is most pleasaunt to be eaten. I suppose we call it the sweete bread."
That explains why, the first time I witnessed the word sweetbreads being used, I mistakenly thought they were dessert or breakfast breads. Did you ever fall into the same trap?

Coffee chain CEO Howard Schultz has reportedly hired the longtime manager of Manhattan juice bar Liquiteria to train staffers on the art of juice in Starbucks's Seattle headquarters. This all makes sense, considering Schultz hinted at Starbucks entering "entirely new categories" earlier this season.
With offerings like green juice setting back sippers anywhere from $8 to $11, this rumored venture, if true, could prove to be even more lucrative for the company. Would you buy freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices from a chain like Starbucks?
