I'm back again with another drink featuring mint. I still have multiple fresh sprigs so I want to make sure I put them to good use. I originally was thinking of a gin/mint/blueberry drink. Most of the recipes I saw were just variations on a gin & tonic. Though delicious
Back to reality is right. I'm back home after spending close to two and a half months down on the Cape. It felt good to be down there, like it was normal almost, but not quite there. It was a welcome break for sure.
In a bit of forward thinking, I
Oh yes. Just like Gob himself, I've got bees again this week. I came across a list of summer drinks to enjoy by the fire. The Bee's Elbow caught my eye, and decided to mix it up for you all this week. Before I get into the drink, can I
Hello and happy summer Friday everyone. For this week, I wanted to make something a tad bit simpler than the last two weeks, which featured dark rum based tropical drinks. Not to mention the supply of Goslings is running precariously low. So I went to work doing some "research" in
Rupert Holmes? Isn't he the guy who sang the pina colada song? Yes, yes he is. Also, you're welcome for getting that song stuck in all of your heads.
What does a song from 1979 have to do with this week? No, I'm not making a pina colada (yet). This week,

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
Hello and welcome to another summer Friday. Up here in the Northeast it is finally starting to get warmer and feel more seasonal. Like last week's spritzer, I wanted to focus on a lighter, easily drinkable cocktail. Mrs. Sharkbait and I are still on our self imposed quarantine, so the
How is everyone this week? I see the roller-coaster of suck that is 2020 is still going strong. Mrs. Sharkbait and I decided that we would head to our place on Cape Cod for a while. We usually rent it out for the summer, but our mid June to mid
I'm not going to lie, I'm still at a loss for words. This week has been quite depressing. I've lost count as to the number of times I've edited this post, because I don't know if I can adequately express how I feel.
