Recipe: Yagoot Dark and Floaty

Recipe: Yagoot Dark and Floaty

I love Yagoot.  I don’t like desserts that are too sweet (indeed, I have very little in the ways of a sweet tooth but salty potato chips had better watch out), and Yagoot’s tingly-tart creaminess is right up my alley.  My standard order is their […]

Cocktail Hour:  True and Untrue and the Ramos Gin Fizz

Cocktail Hour: True and Untrue and the Ramos Gin Fizz

Another year, another Tales of the Cocktail on the record books. I attended, and will be sharing bits and pieces of what I learned over the coming weeks. The best session I attended was True/Untrue, hosted by David Wondrich (my favorite cocktail writer), Wayne Curtis (my new favorite […]

Cocktail Hour: Pisco Sour

Cocktail Hour: Pisco Sour

It’s time for Tales of the Cocktail, the biggest get-together for bartenders, cocktail enthusiasts and spirits in the country. I’m here for the second time, covering the event for my WMDM readers. You’ll see a few posts throughout the week! Do not be afraid of […]

Cocktail Hour: The Tales of the Cocktail Official Cocktail

Cocktail Hour: The Tales of the Cocktail Official Cocktail

It’s getting closer and closer to Tales of the Cocktail, my favorite event ever. Seriously. I missed going so much last year, and I’m so pleased to be attending this year. I haven’t made this cocktail– yet– but this is the official cocktail of the […]

Cocktail Hour: Homemade Irish Cream ( and chocolate syrup!)

Cocktail Hour: Homemade Irish Cream ( and chocolate syrup!)

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, and while I suppose I could provide you with a recipe for colcannon, or a recommendation for an Irish pub, I think I’ll focus on what everyone else seems to be concerned with on St. Patrick’s Day: drinking. Okay, not […]

Cocktail Hour: Homemade Cocktail Onions

Cocktail Hour: Homemade Cocktail Onions

I have more fun making cocktails than drinking them.    Everyone has their cooking niche, and though I think I’ve got some skills all around, I get the geekiest when I’m talking about creating items for cocktails.  I’ve made my own maraschino cherries, my own […]

wmdm’s Holiday Gift List: part 4 (Local(ish) Libations)

wmdm’s Holiday Gift List: part 4 (Local(ish) Libations)

To continue with our local holiday theme, I want to focus on some local libations.  Sure, Cincinnati is known for beer– but did you know that you can buy local whiskey?  Or, if you travel just a bit north, you can find some more micro […]

Cocktail Hour:  Hot Buttered Rum

Cocktail Hour: Hot Buttered Rum

(Guest post by The Better Half) A couple of weeks ago, Julie and I were sitting at the bar at Senate, having a late-night dinner.  Actually, I was there for dinner; Julie was just having a drink. As usual, the place was busy, and I didn’t actually […]

wmdm’s Holiday Gift List 2011: Part 1 (and a recipe!)

wmdm’s Holiday Gift List 2011: Part 1 (and a recipe!)

It’s Black Friday. Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to post a cocktail a bit later today so you can drink your cares away. Me? I don’t do Black Friday. I don’t actually buy many gifts– but I’m always on the lookout for cool ideas and […]

Cocktail Hour: Fragoli Liqueur

Cocktail Hour: Fragoli Liqueur

I often joke that the “booze fairy” occasionally visits my door, bearing samples for me to try.  I’m very behind in reviewing samples (and I’ve decided just to keep the reviews here, tagged “booze me, schmooze me” as it’s easier!).  This one has been staring […]
