Cocktail Hour: The (Old) Old Fashioned

Cocktail Hour: The (Old) Old Fashioned

I’m a bit behind. Last week was Old Fashioned week, and I drank one in honor (the things I do for the blog…) but never posted about it. The old fashioned is called such as it is the essential cocktail: sugar, water, spirits and bitters. […]

Cocktail Hour: Creme Yvette

Cocktail Hour: Creme Yvette

Okay, just a disclaimer. I profiled Chris Seelbach back in May with the Seelbach Cocktail, and offered the opportunity for a similar feature to any other candidate.  Yvette Simpson was the only other candidate who I contacted who wanted to a) talk about her candidacy […]

Cocktail Hour: The Seelbach Cocktail

Cocktail Hour: The Seelbach Cocktail

Okay, just a disclaimer.  I picked this particular cocktail and the profile of the City Council candidate who shares its name because a) I like the cocktail, b) it’s Derby and appropriate and c) he’s a neighbor.  So as not to be partisan, if any […]

Cocktail Hour: The Hurricane

Cocktail Hour: The Hurricane

For those of you that love cocktails, I’m revamping booze me, schmooze me (okay, fine, I’m really trying to get it off the ground). I’ll always link to Cocktail Hour posts here, but they’ll be housed on BMSM to make it easier for those who […]

National Margarita Day

National Margarita Day

There’s a day for everything, and today is National Margarita Day. I fully support this day. Want to support it? Make a margarita. I wrote about them last year during my soon-to-return Cocktail Hour series, and here’s the recipe. If you want more background on […]

Gift Idea: Drinks by the Dram

Gift Idea: Drinks by the Dram

I get a lot of liquor pitches these days, and am slowly amassing products that I need to review (mostly on booze me, schmooze me– you’ll see an uptick there in the next few weeks).  I got this pitch and it was almost as if […]
