Ring in the New Year with this shimmery cocktail made for American Housewife, a raucous collection of short stories by Helen Ellis. The stories are funny, often caustic, and present a portrait of the American wife decades removed from Mrs. Cleaver. One of the women you'll meet weeps because she has a drawer just for glitter, so for her I made this.
