Myself, I’ve had barrel-aged Negronis, Manhattans and Boulevardiers, but I’ve never made one until right now. My favorite of those I tasted is a Manhattan, so for my first foray into barrel-aging, that’s what we’re going to go with.
I tried to keep this pretty exclusively gay (though I did think about doing a “Larry,” which was just to get the saddest, plainest beer and drink it straight from the can while frowning).
See, swirl, sniff and sip!
It’s that time of year again. The time of year when we get a bunch of people at A-Camp to go in on a few bottles of whiskey and we all taste them together and talk about how great whiskey is. And, as with every tasting we do, we encourage you to follow along at home!
In which we stock a bar that is meant just for you and yours.
There is no drink simpler than a gin and tonic. Which means it’s the perfect opportunity to (easily) get a little fancy.

I couldn’t find a drink called “The Power Suit” and I kind of want to invent that now?

We’re going to update you on all the whiskeys our group will be tasting on the mountain so your presumably now-formed queer whiskey tasting friend-group can taste along with us. And our brand new obsession? Hudson Whiskey.
What’s the best way to get a girl to kiss you on a rooftop in Brooklyn? Make her homemade boozy popsicles! The French 75 gets the job done nicely.
I will never give you a red, white or blue (or all three) drink for Fourth of July, because I am cheesy but not that cheesy. That’s why I present to you the Hatter Day #2, a cocktail made of gin and beer.
Even if you’re not a tennis fan, this cocktail is perfect for dinner parties, garden parties, parties where you’d like to have a go at being fancy as fuck.
Ah, the power of buying alcohol in a large group of queermos – if you haven’t done it before, you should probably do it now. Why? Because you can get really amazing bottles to try that might be out of your budget otherwise and you’ll be trying those bottles in really excellent company.
MOAR COCKTAIL RECIPES!

Today, we’re making Silk Panties. Panties panties panties. Let’s make a vodka drink.
