The Boulevardier originated in Europe during the great bartender exodus caused by Prohibition. Definitely NOT a Negroni with bourbon instead of gin.
It’s supposed to be back-to-school time, but it’s still warm! So let’s have a daiquiri while we fret over global climate change.
The De Rigueur makes use of my current favorite cocktail sweetener: honey syrup.
Froozen = frozen + boozy. Get in here for some froozen popsicle magic!
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.
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.
My very first Liquor in the ______ back in 2012 was my mulled wine recipe. Things change. Updates are required.
I shit you not, that’s how I do it. Does it look like I could frost a cake with it? Peachy, then I’m done mixing.
Autumn means hard cider, and (though I love cider) sometimes I find cider to be too sweet. That’s where a Snakebite is truly outstanding—the beer bitters up the cider as the cider sweetens up the beer, making the perfect combo.
In which we make a refreshing pear, vanilla and vodka concoction that signals Autumn while acknowledging the heat of September.
I am a person who thinks there should, on the whole, be more secret societies in this world. So. I’m not saying I’ve made a secret society just to have a secret punch recipe, but I’m not not saying that either.
I should really just buy all these and mix you drinks, right?
(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.
“Optional: grab a chive and tie it around its tiny penguin neck like a wee scarf.”
