One day when you are away, I'm going to sneak upstairs and move all of the bottles around.
Mwuahahaha!


You obviously know that would make me mental.

I would be interested in that actually.


Cool, I'll aim for next week.


Your bar looks so professional, I'm sure you guys are great hosts.
Around here socializing tends to be beer in somebody's garage.
(you know they like you if they order a pizza, hehe...)


We try. Most of our friends know they should ask for a cocktail and try something new and interesting.

So I was close to your neck of the woods last week in Kentucky, Louisville to be exact, and what was happening there? A horse race of some apparent importance. It seems everyone in that area of the state is horse-mental, but after speaking to them it's because they think the creatures have more sense than most politicians. So in honor of Derby we can do it's signature drink, The Mint Julep:
    2 ounces of over-proof bourbon
    1/2 ounce simple syrup
    1 mint sprig

    Add bourbon and syrup to a julep tin. Fill 1/3 full with cracked ice and stir. Fill almost to the top and continue to stir until the tin frosts. Add the mint sprig, a straw and then mound more ice to form a cone. Beat heavily on the longshot.

Not a bourbon fan (blasphemy here!) but, juleps are delicious and refreshing. YUM! I know a good drink for after work today.


Beat heavily on the longshot.

I would never beat on a horse
But, would bet on the longshot every time

Here you go...

Absinthe has a very interesting history, it was highly popular, then illegal for a good amount of time in most places and now is seeing a huge resurgence. The drinking of absinthe in France was a large part of the culture for many in the late 1800s/early 1900s. So much so that it spawned the original 'happy hour'; l'heure verte ("the green hour"). Chasing the 'Green Fairy' became so popular that it was soon blamed for all types of vile issues: murder, debauchery, drunkenness and Impressionism.

It was then banned in nearly every country until just the past decade when actual absinthe, made with wormwood, became legal again. The traditional preparation method is to pour an ounce of absithne into an absinthe cup, place a sugar cube on a spoon and then drip ice water into the glass (louche-ing) where the various botanicals that are water soluble are released. This opens up the absinthe and allows more flavors to come through from the typically high-proof liqueur which will taste mostly of licorice if drunk straight. The Traditional Absinthe:
    1 ounce absinthe
    1 demerara sugar cube
    5 ounce of ice water (you can use more or less depending on your taste)

    Pour absinthe into glass, place sugar cube on spoon over the glass. Drip ice water into glass for desired dilution. Quickly stir with spoon once sugar is dissolved. Drink. Chop your ear off and mail it to someone.

These two are courtesy of D&Co.



Since you don't like bourbon you can give these a try. One of the greatest drinks is the Negroni (gin/vermouth/Campari) and this is a spin on that with a 2:1:1 ratio but using caraway-flavored Aquavit for half if the gin portion. The May Fair:
    1 ounce London dry gin
    1 ounce Linie aquavit
    1 ounce Carpano Antica Vermouth
    1/4 ounce Benedictine
    2 dashes angostura bitters
    2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
    Orange twist for garnish

    Stir all ingredients over ice until well chilled. Strain into a rocks glass with one large ice cube. Garnish with twist.

The ladies loved this one; it's like a smoky and sweet margarita. It combines Mezcal, tequila's more flavorful older brother, Aperol and Chartreuse in a take on the Last Word. The Naked and Famous:
    3/4 Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
    3/4 ounce Yellow Chartreuse
    3/4 ounce Aperol
    3/4 ounce lime juice

    Shake all ingredients over ice and then strain into a chilled coupe. No garnish.

Well, if I had to pick ONE...I suppose it would be this one.

Okay then, I'll post a really awesome one later this week that we had while we were out an Cali and playing a friendly game of Stump the Bartender.

The bartender won.

That was in Healdsburg, but we stayed in Santa Rosa and shot over to Napa, Calistoga and St. Helena.

Nice. I usually like to play stump the gimp but stump the bartender can be as equally entertaining if it's a date night

If only there was a gimp there.

Fun trip though, wine was amazing.

Pour a small glass about half full of your favorite fruit-smoothie.
Throw in a double of Everclear.
Put a popsicle stick in it and freeze.
Good for cooling your brain in Texas heat.
