“Improving” a cocktail does not necessarily mean making it better. The term simply means something was added to the traditional combination of spirit, sugar, water, and bitters associated with an Old Fashioned style cocktail. In this case, Charlotte “improves” this tequila Old Fashioned by adding Maraschino and two types of bitters.
In anticipation of the return of Twin Peaks, we look back at the best food moments from the cult classic.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
Softened vegetables, including onions and bell peppers, amped up with spices like chili powder, cumin, oregano, and cayenne, form the base of this tortilla soup. Chicken broth and tomatoes are added, along with soft corn tortillas that meld into the liquid to make a hearty, thick meal. Finally, shredded chicken is stirred in, and everything is garnished with crunchy tortilla strips, sour cream, shredded cheese, and scallions (avocados, pickled jalapeños, and cilantro would all work too).
Easy Roasted Acorn Squash
Roasted acorn squash couldn't be easier, or more delicious. A little butter, salt, freshly ground pepper, and a sprinkle of brown sugar to emphasize the squash's natural sweetness, plus about an hour in the oven, and you have a gorgeously caramelized side (or main dish, if you stuff the squash), with a pool of glaze in the center of each piece.
