Savory Cocktails vs. Peanut Butter & Jelly

February 5, 2015

Savory Cocktails

The bow has been shot across now, TWICE IN ONE EMAIL.

Shot #1: Amanda and Jordan are getting you all savory: Rosemary, Celery, Curry, Fenugreek, Chilies, and all manner of “trust us, it’ll be delicious.”

Shot #2: new to the team is celebrated bartender Evan Martin, who has won a ton of meaningful awards and recognition but retains his humility and playfulness enough to tell me, “Hey, I want to do a Peanut Butter and Jelly cocktail.” 

Aaaannnnddddd…it’s delicious. Rye infused w/ PB&J, Lemon, Simple, and a float of Cabernet that goes remarkably well. He’ll make you one tonight and therefore win you over.

Tonight, 6ish. I love you.

Super Dark and Totally Evil Cocktails

October 23, 2014

Halloween Cocktails Pt. 1

Tonight Morgan (aka DJ Kingblind) is playing Goth hits as part of his Halloween series. What that means: Spooky shoe-staring, black- haired, easily-sunburned, vitamin-deficient ghouls playing legendery music that will make you want to drink even more good booze because staring at your shoes is f**king boring.

And your hosts Jordan and Rachel have some cocktails all lined up…

Bela Lugosi’s Undead
Bourbon, Ginger Snap, Rioja, Lemon, Mole

Black Heart
Black Strap Rum, Cynar, Crème de Mure, Lime, Ginger Beer.

And More
This isn’t a cocktail, it’s must me saying “and more cocktails.” Sorry for any confusion.

Tonight, 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.

Big Perfect Gin

April 10, 2014
Big Gin

If you’ve heard me talk about local booze, you know it’s a mixed bag in my book. Some of it’s terrible, some of it’s good, and a few are outstanding.

Cuz it’s how I roll, I finally got around to buying one of the absolute best – Big Gin and Big Gin Bourbon Barrel Aged. I’m a nut for gin and theirs makes my arm hairs stand up and tummy sleepy. And the barrel aged one is the best locally made booze I’ve ever had, full stop.

So, we’ll try not to hack it up too badly by making some drinks with it tonight

Perfection is: Big Gin Jasmine: Big Gin, Lemon, Cointreau, Campari. Just sayin’.

– Hugs, OMJ
