This year at A-Camp, we’re tasting whiskeys that are or have been historically piloted by women. No boys’ club spirits this year!
Pair the Americano with the English translation of Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan series. Happy May!
A Negroni is perhaps the easiest cocktail in the world to make—it’s three ingredients and can be built all in one glass.
The Sazerac isn’t for the faint of heart, because really it is only liquor (including that green fairy, absinthe).
Seasonal but hopeful for Spring? The Abbey is delightful and orange and has your back this February.
I found this recipe for Red Wine Hot Chocolate and tweaked it a tiny bit. Here’s how to make it.
Bears, tacos, the horseshoe crab’s lot in life, QUIDDITCH BEER PONG, mental health on campus, suburban churches, queer zines you need to read, talk of Britney Spears, migrant workers’ rights, and so much more!
I’m not interested in the kiddie theme park variety made of cream soda and syrup from a squeeze bottle; I want hot, alcoholic, grown-ass woman butterbeer.

In which we make a refreshing pear, vanilla and vodka concoction that signals Autumn while acknowledging the heat of September.

I should really just buy all these and mix you drinks, right?
Here’s what you do if you have 18 pounds of highbush organic New Jersey blueberries.
(or the Bee’s Knees? I’m choosing to go with the plural possessive because no one bee is responsible for the honey. Or we could call it the Beeses Kneeses.)
Limitting a tasting to one specific distillery is like reading something you like and then picking up every book the author ever wrote. Becoming familiar with one distillery’s whiskeys gives you the chance to talk about their body of work as a whole.
“I could not wrap my head around having to jump back into the dating scene – sober no less. Where would I find suitable dating candidates? How do I “come out” as sober?

When you’re Staycationing, a cheese plate is a wonderful thing whether you’re hosting company or you plan to eat that entire board all by your fucking self (I support you in this).
“Optional: grab a chive and tie it around its tiny penguin neck like a wee scarf.”
