Space-Age Cocktails

November 20, 2014

Space-Age Cocktails

So the name of our bar has the word “lounge” right there. Second word. Yes, really. Go look if you don’t believe me. K.

Now, Morgan (aka DJ Kingblind) has decided we need to really LOUNGE the hell out of it Thursday night, like a space-age bachelor pad. Therefore, the drinks will flow like some sort of flowy thing along the same flowing path of…um, flow. Spherical, space-age ice cube thingies, A and J’s take on Sidecars, Old Fashioneds, Boulevariders, and things with sparkles in them.

I was gonna say “No new stuff,” but let’s be realistic; I can’t really stop them from being all creative. Lounge Classics. Yeah.

Thursday night, 6ish.

Pureed Cocktails

Pureed Cocktails

I keep forgetting that a.) bartender Amanda is, like, a super talented chef, and that b.) Jordan is as giddy as a schoolgirl when it comes to playing with his food until it becomes drinks.

This week, they also want to play with sharp stuff and are making a bunch of purees. Fennel, pumpkin, pomegranate, and other stuff that looks, you know, good. If there’s one thing I can tell you about purees, it’s that they’re not gonna appreciate themselves. So you have to. That’s the way it has to be. Love you.

Thursday night, 6ish, until someone loses a finger in the pureeifying machine.

Smoked Booze

November 6, 2014

Smoked Booze

Jordan and Amanda: “Hey, we want to do smoke for cocktail club this week.”
Me: “Uh, smoked ingredients or actual smoke?”
Them: “Both.”
Me: “That’s ambitious.”
Them: “Shut up. We got this.”

That may not be a direct quote, but you get the drift.

So there you go. Cedar Smoked Old Fashioned, Burnt Cinnamon Manhattan, Lapsang Smoked Caipirinha, and much more. If you’re scared, um….knock it off. Remember, you like smoke in food, why not in your booze?

Thursday night, 6-ish until J and/or A drop a smoking ember into a puddle of booze and burn the bar flat.

P.S. If you don’t like smoke in your food, then I’m super sorry. You’ll still like these drinks, though.
