In a semi-regular segment entitled Liquor In The ______ that can’t be too regular because I’m probably drinking right now, I’m going to write to you about all the different ways you can liquor. I recognize that it’s weird, especially for those of you who have actually had a drink with me, because I am what the frat boys would call a “two-beer queer” (what I would call a “no-beer queer,” as I’m gay all the live long day). But I get drunk very easily, is the point. Still, I really really like beer, wine and liquor and want to share that love for the artistry of alcohol with you all, my favorite queers. Let’s lift a pint to alcohol and our Autostraddle community– they go together like wine and soft cheese.

I love the Kitchn, you love the Kitchn, we all love the Kitchn. But for me, most of the amazing recipes are out of my reach. I look at the Kitchn the same way I look at my Pinterest board of what I want my apartment to look like: if only, if only. If only I didn’t burn soup that comes in a can. But this is the week. This is the week that I have a fighting shot at the recipes on the Kitchn. Because this week is Cocktail Week and dammit, I can mix a drink. I might not be able to microwave soy chick’n nuggets, but mix I can!
It’s only Monday night (at the time that I’m writing this) and they’ve already had a 3-Ingredient Cocktail Open Thread, a store profile of Cocktail Kingdom (a magical place), a recipe for Gin and Tonic Sorbet (which my girlfriend assures me I am making for her) and a post on pitcher drinks for a party that includes a recipe for Strawberry Basil Margaritas (om nom nom nom). Not to mention a Wine Words post. I truly cannot wait to see what the rest of the week will bring me/us/the world at large. Let’s shake it up, queermos!
