The Alaska Cocktail

We bit the bullet and picked up that needed bottle of yellow Chartreuse this afternoon. Might as well continue our weekly $80 Total Wine spend I guess. Like the green version, the yellow Chartreuse is mint forward. While the green tastes a bit like toothpaste, the yellow has a slight fish quality about it. If

The Gin is Flow’n

We love Gin in our house. And admittedly, Ryan and I skipped a few pages weeks ago in search of new ways to enjoy our Gin No.6 blend. But Spring has sprung here in Las Vegas and while that brings lovely flowers, it sucks for seasonally allergies šŸ™ With that, I had been tardy keeping

Adventures with Apricot Nectar

As predicted our St. Paddy’s day celebrationĀ fun ate up the weekend and now that the Ginger Beer order is on it’s way to New York I can get back to drinking! These next two recipes took some digging to figure out what in the heck they meant by Apricot Nectar. Did they mean Apricot juice

I was surprised and delighted to see so many different recipes for Absinthe in

Bartender! Another Round Please

Unlike the Abbey Cocktail which holds theĀ number one position forĀ both the first and 63rd edition of Mr. Boston’s Official Bartenders Guide, the Absinthe Cocktail was nowhere to be found in theĀ 1988 version. Though Mr. Boston’s websiteĀ lists a version of the Absinthe Cocktail recipe, it is missing what I think is makes this a special drink…

A Year of Cocktails

A copy of Mr. Boston Official Bartender’s Guide inspired what I hope will become this years blog series. Found in Ryan’s grandmothers pantry, the 63rdĀ edition published in 1988 holds 207 pages of cocktail recipes. I had dreamed on starting this cocktail adventureĀ at the first of the new year but alas we been recuperating from the
