Happy long weekend everyone. With today being an observed holiday, I hope that the majority of you are ready to start day drinking. As they say: "You can't drink all day unless you start in the morning!" Given that we're in the middle of summer, and I have plenty of
One of the fun perks of writing this post is the amount of suggestions I get from friends who read. This week's drink is one that was suggested during a socially distant movie night. It's also another cocktail that calls for an egg white.
Raw egg again? Damn right. If it's
Welcome once again everyone. This week, I've decided to deviate a bit from the theme of simplicity I've been writing about over the last few weeks. I have a fairly extensive list of drinks I've found either in my cocktail books, or the internet that I've been adding to every
It's always interesting when you get a text message like this: "I need a second / third opinion on this cocktail". Checking the link, I was surprised when I saw it was a split base cocktail. Not so much on the fact that it was a split base, but more

"Give me the coffee to deal with the things I can control, give me alcohol to deal with the things I can't"
I heard that phrase late last week. While I find it amusing, it also serves as a reminder that there are, in fact, a lot of things that are
Well, its Friday once again. That means we're mixing drinks again. Usually, my cocktail selection process follows one of two paths. I either search the web with a pre selected base spirit in mind to find an obscure drink or recipe I've never had before. The other method is to
Happy Friday...wait, is it Friday?
Regardless, it's a day that ends with "Y", so we should start drinking right? So let's get to it. Just like last week, I'm dipping into the "bench" and instead of using the canton again, I'm instead using elder flower liqueur as a key ingredient. But
