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,

Teabagged Cocktails

March 5, 2015

Tea Cocktails

Name something that has a huge, rich culinary history and incredible range of flavors and importance that most people think is boring as s**t: It’s a drink. British like it. It’s in Honeybush and Red Rickey and…

Ah, screw it; It’s tea.

Jordan and Amanda are infusing vermouth, booze, syrups, and possibly ice with a wide range of tea to take this over the top.

“But Old Man Johnson, I like Manhattans, not just fruity stuff…”

Well, good. Lapsang will make it sing. So will green tea in the vermouth. And Hibiscus in the bitters. You sea where I’m going. Please believe me. I love you.

Thursday night, 6ish.

Vintage Cocktails

Vintage Cocktails

I pulled a fast one on some super nice folks who think I was a good candidate to bar cater a party thingy where I wear a tie and make drinks from the 1920s and not spill purple stuff on myself and others.

In honor of what I’m SURE will be a triumphant vest wearing, your loving caretakers will make you 1920s drinks as well. Why is that interesting? Well, ’cuz you couldn’t even drink in this country in the ’20s, much less invent. AaaaaHAAA!

Here’s a couple vintage cocktails that talented people who aren’t me will make for customers who are you:

SEELBACH: Bourbon, Cointreau, Bitters, Champaigne

TUXEDO #2: Gin, Maraschino, Orange Bitters

HOTEL NACIONALE: Rum, Pineapple, Lime, Apricot

BEES KNEES: Gin, Honey, Lemon, Bitters.

Whee. Tonight. Etc.
