Hello from the new base of cocktail operations. The bar has been put in its place, however the bar books are still boxed up, and the glassware is still buried somewhere in my kitchen. At least the booze is a bit more accessible...
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
Happy first Friday in December. This December feels a little bit different thanks to *gestures wildly* everything going on, But I'm going to try and be festive damnit, since Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. Another reason this feels a bit different is that the Sharkbait clan is moving
Happy Black Friday! I trust your Thanksgivings (or for our Canadian neighbo(u)rs Thursday) were happy and safely celebrated. We did a low key dinner with just the three of us, interspersed with multiple video calls so we can see family. Such is the normal for 2020. As much as it
The directors of the post hired to continue writing after the other people had been sacked, wish it to be known that they have just been sacked.
The post has been completed in an entirely different style, at great expense and at the last minute.
Ok, so maybe I wasn't sacked, and
My two weeks of self isolation down at Forward Operating Base Cape Cod are finally over! I'm healthy and back in Boston with my fully armed and operational home bar.
So, I've been trying to keep the drinks here as seasonally relevant as possible (with the exception of last week, that
Well, I don’t know about the rest of you, but election stress drinking still in full swing, despite being three days post election day. At the time of this writing the outcome is still in question, though hopefully it will have been decided favorably.
Anyway, with the need for booze to
Happy All Hallows Eve everyone! Keeping with the holiday weekend theme, and my desire to break out a drink I've been dying to try, I made Zombies this week! Also, now you have The Cranberries stuck in your head (in your head), You're welcome.
The Zombie is the brainchild of Donn
