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.

Baby Pappy

December 12, 2013

 

 

Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon

Okay, dinguses… First, I’d like to clarify that I wasn’t really calling YOU a dingus – that was aimed at my one buddy, the one with the thin belt. You know who you are.

Second, the elusive and wildly popular PAPPY VAN WINKLE BOURBONS (and one Rye) will be on the shelf tonight. In honor of them, we’ll be making cocktails with the more reasonable booze that is the baby that turns in to Pappy – WELLER BOURBON.

So, there you go, and I’m sorry again, except for that one guy. See you tomorrow.
