Cocktail Club: Florida Blues

June 18, 2015

Florida Blues

Lots of different opinions on what’s the most bats**t crazy state in the country, but my bet’s on Florida, where our DJ Kingblind is visiting this week.

Paying tribute to our guy Morgan, of course, as well. Amanda did some figuring and Florida is the biggest citrus state in the country, and has the highest consumption of magical, delicious Rum.

So there you go: Floridita Daiquiri, Rum Runner, Rum Daisy, Agricole Punch, and thousands more. Challenge Amanda — cuz she can do it, I promise. Tonight, 6PM.

Heart,

Spiders, Ancient Egyptians and Comedy

June 15, 2015

Emmett Montgomery

Emmet Montgomery works that high-tension wire between the pure/lovely and the awful/wicked. That’s where comedy lives…”
– Brendan Kiley/ The Stranger

“When God closes a door, He opens a window and anything can crawl in. Not spiders, they are already there, they have always been there.”

Just a taste of the sharp, tongue-in-cheek comedy style of Emmett Montgomery, one of Seattle’s top comedians. Headlining “Just Laugh It Off” Comedy Night at the Feedback Lounge on Wednesday, June 17, 8PM (no cover), you ‘ll not only be treated to a barrage of Emmet’s insightful and twisty observations, but appearing with six more rising star laugh masters as well.

“If we switch our written language into all emojis we’ll basically be the ancient Egyptians…”

“As is tradition on one’s birthday eve, tonight I put the past year of my life under my pillow for the grim reaper. I hope he leaves candy…”

Also appearing is the fantastic Josh Chambers, Sarah Skilling, Randy Iwancio, Rick Taylor, and Mona Concepcion, and hosted by Ty Devaney.

Summer Tea, Swear Words, Sunshine

June 11, 2015

Summer Tea
Thursday
 night gals: “We’re making tea cocktails, cuz it’s f***ing hot.”
Me: “Sounds good. Maybe a little more detail, please.”
TNG: “Mia Thai Iced Tea. Blackberry Bourbon Black Tea. Watermelon White Tea Margarita. Ginger and Bitter Peach Green Tea-ni.”
Me: “Guhhhh, those sound really REALLY good…” (considers hanging up creative cocktail hat and handing off to TNG).

So, yeah, cool down with this magical booze. And also air conditioning. But mostly, the booze.

Tonight at 6. Yay!

Cat Cocktails

June 4, 2015

 

Cat CocktailsAmanda wants to do drinkies that relate to June’s holidays, but not the ones you’re thinking. Today, evidently, is “Hug Your Cat Day,” “Old Maid’s Day,” and “Applesauce Cake Day.” It’s also Rose Month, which goes pretty well with what we can do.

Floral is one of those flavors people think of as all sweet girly drinks, but there are flowers in Vermouth, Bitters, Liqueurs, and a bunch of other booze. That’ll be the base for tonight, but I still think you should make Amanda do a cocktail in honor of hugging your cat. Please let me know how that goes. Let’s say 6ish.

Love You,
– OMJ

Cocktail Club: Vodka Cop-Out

May 28, 2015

Vodka

During all the time we’ve been doing Cocktail Club we’ve pretty much ignored vodka on account of it doesn’t really taste like anything. It certainly can be refreshing though, and with weather like this, refreshing is what you need.

Plus,we’ve got a billion choices of things that will make vodka taste GOOD (Rose, Kummel, apricot, bourbon, scotch, etc…)

So, there’s  my cop-out post on vodka – we have ways to make it way more interesting. Oh, and also – air-conditioning. Let’s say Thursday night, 6ish?

There’s a million ways to make a martini, and Frank would be proud of FBL’s way. So…see you around 6ish?

Elevated Eighties: Old School Classic Cocktails

April 30, 2015

Elevated Eighties

Well, Amanda’s decided she’s abandoning us like we’re a blind puppy. Sorry, that’ll probably maker her sad. We love Amanda and wish her all the best, and she’ll be back to help out, she promises.

Meantime, tonight’s her last night, so she gets to make crafty versions of Elevated ’80s: Long Island Iced Tea, Grasshopper, Amaretto Sour, Appletini… It’ll certainly be a challenge for her, but Jordan’s here to help out. Make it tough for her, and give her lots of love, please.

6-ish
