Hello again one and all. In keeping on the autumnal seasonal trend I started last week, I went looking for cocktails that made use of one specific ingredient: apple brandy. I feel like it is a spirit I always seem to have but tend to underutilize. Plus, with warm fall
Happy Fall Friday! The Sharkbait clan decided to take advantage of a warm Fall Saturday (as well as get the fuck out of the house and do something) last weekend and we figured going to an orchard would be a relatively socially distant and safe activity. So off we went,
So we have come to the close of yet another week in this dumpster fire of a year. The last couple weeks, and this one especially were dominated by the news of certain individuals and their tax returns, and how much they did or did not pay. God, just typing
A successful trip to socially distantly see family in NH last weekend meant two things: 1) Legal sports betting (PRAISE GAMBLOR!) and 2) Cheap booze! A quick pitstop at the liquor store before heading to my father in law's resulted in a nice re-supply for my bar. I also (finally)
Hello once again. It's Friday and that means we're cocktailing again. Now that it is mid September, it seems Fall is once again bearing down on all of us and all the telltale signs are here: the evening air is getting cooler, football is back and I already hate my
Happy Friday! I trust we're all not cripplingly hungover from the return of football last night?

Happy Friday once again. I'm back with yet another drink suggested to me by a friend. I've been sitting on this one for a bit actually. Initially, I wanted to save this one for the week of Halloween, given the name "Skeleton Key", but I decided to move it up
One of my favorite things to do in the before times was sit at a bar. I don't mean just go to a bar, I mean sit at the physical bar. I love the people-watching, as well as seeing the bartenders work their mixology magic.
The best is on a slower
Happy Friday once again. This marks the first full week back at work after taking half a month off to watch Baby Shark while Mrs. Sharkbait started her new job. It was an educational experience for sure. Baby Shark certainly learned a lot of new words while dad had hockey
Happy August Friday everyone. After three weeks of more contemporary drinks (including a hybrid I made up), I wanted to go back to a more classic drink. I picked one from the prohibition era that has been on my radar for a little while: The Twelve Mile Limit.
A little bit
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
