Ukrainian Kompot (компот)

Ukrainian Kompot (компот)

Within minutes of entering Alona’s grandmother’s house I’m offered a cold glass of traditional Ukrainian kompot. This is a very simple drink, and one of the most popular beverages in the country. I’ve been having it for a few years now and finally decided to […]

5 Cocktails With Butterfly Pea Flowers

5 Cocktails With Butterfly Pea Flowers

About a month ago I decided to buy a pack of butterfly pea flowers. I’ve always liked drinking the tea when I would visit Thailand, and knew about the color changing properties. However I had never used them for anything other than tea. I decided […]

Star Wars Dalgona Coffee

Star Wars Dalgona Coffee

So about 12 hours ago I mentioned Luke Skywalker’s Blue Milk that today I would be posting TWO Star Wars recipes. The reason being that the second recipe uses the first. I’ve never made a Dalgona Coffee before, and to be honest I didn’t see […]

Luke Skywalker’s Blue Milk

Luke Skywalker’s Blue Milk

Is this a joke post, or is it just something to post on May 4th, internationally recognized Star Wars Day. I’d say it’s a little bit of both. I didn’t get to post an April Fool’s recipe so this ruddy blue milk will have to […]

The Jack Rose

The Jack Rose is a classic cocktail that was popular at the turn of the 20th century. No one really knows who invented it, or why it is named how it is, but there are many disputed theories. The recipe I’m giving for this cocktail […]

Event Horizon

Event Horizon

The Event Horizon is a drink I made a couple days ago to try out cocktails with a new bottle of Magellan gin. This is a French gin that is infused with Iris flowers, so it does have a light blue color. While I don’t […]

Hemingway Daiquiri

Hemingway Daiquiri

Perhaps one of my favorite authors (probably for his short straight-to-the-point prose) Ernest Hemingway is as much known for his literary works as it larger than life personality. A fan of drinking and fighting, it only makes sense he has a drink named after himself. […]

Blue Hawaii

Blue Hawaii

If you’re thinking, “Hey that’s green not blue!” you wouldn’t be the first. In fact the Blue Hawaii is a completely separate cocktail than the Blue Hawaiian, which is blue. This cocktail was created by Harry Yee, the bartender of the Hilton Hawaiian Village in […]
