Looks like the women-folk are taking over, lol...I'm sure the host won't mind.

Somehow I suspect that was his intention all along...

When I'm not working in big cities, I spend every spare second working in the farm garden. Zone 6-7

Oh that's beautiful! What a surprise to come in and find the sista's discussing flowers, lol.

Sadly you just reminded me that I have a flowering plant on my balcony that I forgot about (and haven't watered).
(I guess around here, if it doesn't nag me...it gets ignored...)

LOL! Well Zazz is hosting a Garden Cocktail Party, lets set the challenge for AUG to match a drink to the flower.

Here is his next challenge: my wild honeysuckle on the unkempt WILD east side of the property.

Hmm...Chirp seems to think our 'host' has nefarious plans...
(ugh, that word makes me think of parasites, lol)

I was raised in apartments, that's my excuse. I've had gardens...not successful gardens though.
As soon as I spot a spider I run back inside.

Edit: Zazz those are beautiful! I'm thinking the drink should be like a 'creamsicle'...orange and vanilla...?

Ah - I'm in zone 5.

We had a lovely spring bloom, but now we're waiting for the late spring/early summer stuff.

I bought some perennial starts -
lantana, campanula, (the pansies are doing okay but not thriving - I think there's a soil issue), and a couple of others - also put in catnip, cilantro/coriander, lemon sage....

my mom and I will be getting together next week to select some of hers to bring over here.....
her garden is 27 years old now....and incredibly beautiful. Nothing like "people with dirty hands" to beautify the world, eh?

But, like jacy - I tend to plant and then leave them to their own devices - "If you can't make it on your own, that's on you! I can't be bothered to water and fuss over and baby you!" And yet I cry when I accidentally mow one down or squash it.

zazz, my parents flipped a coin...Australia or Canada.
Canada won.

I can handle snakes, but spiders...omg NO! I've seen some of the creepy crawlies from 'down under' and I think I'd be in perpetual therapy if I lived there.

Bleeding heart part sun/part shade, very rich loose soil, there roots travel as far but don't like to push very hard, they set quite tender. Remove any rocks and make sure they have partial shade.

Top it off with sparkling champagne.
Garnish with a wild honeysuckle flower.

Sounds like what I had in mind when I mentioned "creamsicle"!
I love the idea of the flower garnish.


Aug...sorry, we had a hen party while you were out.

Okay, the first cocktail we did was the Sazerac which eventually led to the Old Fashioned which is the cocktail at its simplest. Base, sweetener and bitters. The name comes from this preparation method which led to people requesting a drink made 'the old fashioned way'. The historically accurate method of making this drink involves the use of only bourbon or rye without the use of muddled fruit which is a rather contemporary addition. I will give two methods for making a drink in the 'old fashioned' method.

The Old Fashioned:
    2 Ounces high proof bourbon or rye
    1 Ounce demerara syrup or simple syrup
    2 Dashes Angostura bitters
    1 Lemon and/or orange peel for garnish

    Or:

    2 Ounces high proof bourbon or rye
    1 sugar cube (preferably raw brown sugar)
    I ounce water
    2 Dashes Angostura bitters
    1 Lemon and/or orange peel for garnish

    First method. Stir bourbon/rye, bitter and syrup until well chilled. Strain into a double rocks glass with one large ice cube and garnish with lemon and/or orange.

    Second method. Place sugar cube in a teaspoon and add bitters. When they are full absorbed place cube in a double rocks glass with water. Muddle until incorporated, then add bourbon/rye and one large ice cube. Garnish with lemon and/or orange peel. Chill the eff out.
