Am I the only one that has a weird connection to a place despite barely having any sort of connection to it? That's how I feel about New York. I didn't grow up there, I've never lived there, and until very recently I didn't have any friends that lived there.
Happy Friday. This week I wanted to feature tequila, as I felt like it had been too long since I made a drink with tequila as the main ingredient. As luck would have it, my search for a not so run of the mill tequila cocktail brought me to the
Happy Friday once again. It's Valentines day weekend and a long one at that (sorry Canada). Being that this is a holiday weekend, I thought it would be fitting to feature sparking wine this week. Plus using sparkling wine allows me to finally break out the coupes I found during
Happy Hate Week Friday everyone! There is slow and steady progress in unpacking. Mostly the method has been "where the fuck is X?" and we go searching through various boxes in order to find said missing item. I took that same approach this week and made it a mission to
Yes we're still unpacking here. That means I still have not found my cocktail books. That is going to be the goal for this weekend, believe me. However, what I DID find while unpacking is an open bottle of Disaronno Amoretto, and decided to utilize the last bit of the
January is all about new beginnings right? This year it certainly is for me. New Year, new house, new president. What is a more fitting metaphor than a rising sun?
Now that I have a fully armed and operational battle station bar at my disposal again, I thought it was appropriate

So what does this mean for the drink
That's right, they took the whole fucking bar! By they I mean the movers because today is moving day for the Sharkbait clan. I forgot how much moving sucks. Nothing is where you need it, everything is packed and there are boxes everywhere you turn, which is not great when
Happy New Year! Finally, we're off of the roller coaster of suck that 2020 was. Not that the calendar turning to 2021 is going to immediately make everything better, but it does seem to have a little bit of optimism attached to it already doesn't it? Do I have any
Happy Christmas one and all. Hopefully you're all safe at home and making the best of this outlier of a Christmas. For those that don't celebrate Christmas, today is the beginning of a three day weekend at what is essentially garbage time in the year. So why not have a
Well, I don't care what the calendar says but it's officially winter now. The East coast got hit with a sizeable winter storm Wednesday night, and Boston got just about a foot of snow. So I spent most of my Thursday afternoon shoveling my car out. Thankfully, I had two
Greetings one and all. Once again we're attempting something festive here. While we're not drinking eggnog, eggs ARE involved, since this is a basic Flip. This recipe comes from the Waldorf Astoria Bar Book by Frank Caiaf, and couldn't be any easier. It's booze, an egg, and simple syrup. It
