In honor of Siete de Mayo we are having drinks today with some folks.


I'll have Trump send some chow from the café in Trump Tower to help with your cultural appropriation.


If I can get my crap phone to take a decent photo, I will post to your thread. It won't be as 'fancy' as your stuff though.



Pics are welcome, good or bad. It makes me feel like less of an alcoholic if other people are posting them too.

Hi chirp, my friend has a Margarita machine at his house. Everyone who goes over to his house is doomed. We always walk out with a Margarita buzz. Have fun at your party.

Sounds delicious!

I think that I will cover the 'snacks' since I won't be serving dinner. It will give me the opportunity to try several different things (recipes) without committing to a big meal.

They'll be talking shop anyway so, I will prefer being the food/drink wench! LOL

Well, in that case post some pics of the chow in my Food Porn thread.

I've seen one in clubs/pubs.

I didn't think people had them in their house.

Oh wait, I DO have one. A blender. I won't be making frozen ones though.

Glad to see you are a purist, I am not a fan of frozen margaritas or daiquiris.

LOL a blender works. My friend runs a club and he bought their old Margarita machine and now it lives in his kitchen. Scary.

YUM! I outdid myself!


The old man wanted to use his bottle of cuervo (Rolling Stone Silver) so I went along.
We tried DeKuyper and Sons 03 and it's not bad. It certainly isn't Cointreau or Grand Marnier but it's not bad.
Sort of on the sweet side so my sugar, salt, lime zest mix may not work except for the ladies


On a scale from 1-10, I give it a 8 1/2 Dick!


Okay off to do something with this curly frizzy mop I call hair!

*posting food in the porn thread first!*

I need that drink for tomorrow! I'll put on a feathered hat, clutch that drink in a pose, and watch the Kentucky Derby.

Those look good, I like the glassware. We need the recipe though.


So, since you got me in a tequila mood I made an interesting cocktail from one of my favorite cocktail bars, Death and Co. called the Oaxaca Old Fashioned. It has reposado tequila and, for added flavor, mezcal. Try to stay away from the cheap stuff as this one is all about the ingredients. The Mezcal I use is very smoeky and imparts a great flavor to the drink.

Oaxaca Old Fashioned:
    1 1/2 Ounces El Tesoro Reposado tequila
    1/2 Ounce Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
    1 Ounce agave nectar
    1 Orange peel

    Stir tequila and mezcal over ice until well chilled. Starin into a double rocks glass with one large ice cube. Squeeze orange peel in front of a match over the glass to ignite the oils. Drop peel into glass.

For the people who were afraid of drinking tequila and mezcal (lightweights) I made them a White Negroni. After we covered the standard recipe in a previous post this one shows how you can modify the drink by changing out some of the ingredients.

White Negroni:
    1 1/2 Ounces gin (I used Hendricks since it has extra botanicals)
    3/4 Ounce Dolin Blanc vermouth
    3/4 Suze Saveur
    1 Lemon peel for garnish

    Stir first three ingredients over ice until well chilled. Strain into a double rocks glass with one large ice cube and garnish with the lemon peel.




Suze Saveur is an interesting mixer that is made from wild Yellow Gentian from the Thuir region of France. It is a staple in most cocktail bars but is unheard of in most home bars. If you can locate it I suggest grabbing a bottle and trying it in various recipes, it is a standout ingredient and adds tremendous flavor and aroma to whatever you are mixing.

YUM!

Perhaps in one of my Knoxville or Nashville visits!

The stores there have a greater selection/variety.

I'll look.

If you can track it down it is great to add to your home bar. I can give you a few more recipes with Suze that make awesome cocktails.

Me too. Where is that barkeep?
Likely chasing all the serving wenches 'around the beer garden.

Am hot and bothered from gardening and have collapsed on my outdoor chaise talking to bumble bees and humming birds.

sigh.....

such a lazy player.

Yeah, I spent the mid-day painting the back wall of the exterior of my house - it's been a juggle with the yard being so demanding too. We've been at work on the house for 9 months - and I'm glad spring is here. Can finish up a lot of stuff -

but the yard!! The yard!!!

I know! It never ends, and we have had plenty of rain so the weeds are my nemesis (after the mason of course)

However, I have all sorts of lovelies coming up! If can be bothered to get up and take some snaps I will!
Keep on rockin it sister.
