Absinthe Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

March 20, 2014

Wormwood

You what sounds delicious on a cold or hot or really any day? Wormwood. I mean, it just SOUNDS delicious. Like…well, an old, um, piece of wood crawling with… Yeah, scratch what I just said. It sounds ishy.

But, it’s been an ingredient in booze for hundreds of years. Vermouth, translated, means Wormwood. It’s in Absinthe. And also other stuff, probably. It’ll certainly be in cocktails, which we’ll make and you’ll drink. That’s how it works.

Tonight, 7ish. Love you.

How To Improve Your Cocktail

March 6, 2014

Improve Your Cocktail

I’m trying to self-improve lately (by “self improve,” I mean “not be chunkier than I should be”), and I shall demand that of classic cocktails on this eve.

They’re not gonna improve themselves, so we’ll do the work. You may have wanted to try a Corpse Reviver #2, for instance, but hate Absinthe like it wants you dead. So, let’s improve it for you.

Lemon Drop too pedestrian for you, tasting like spiked lemonade as it does? Use gin instead, and mayhap splash some orange bitters in there. Tell us what you are “meh” about, we’ll make it better. Just for you. Awww.

Tonight, FBL.
