The Godfather

The Godfather

So I truthfully don’t consider this drink a cocktail, as there are only two ingredients. Technically it’s a mixed drink, although the fact that both of the liquids are alcohol can be mistaken for a cocktail. Actually, I could totally be wrong…call it whatever you […]

Summer On Corfu

Summer On Corfu

Corfu is probably my favorite of the Greek islands. I know many people dream of honeymoons on Santorini, or the beach clubs of Mykonos, but for me Corfu is the best island. Maybe it is because it was the first place in Greece I went […]

Classic Dirty Martini

Classic Dirty Martini

The dirty martini is one of the easiest cocktails to make, which is good because Alona asks me to make her one all the time. I do it as a standard martini of 2:1 gin and vermouth along with a few barspoons of olive brine. […]

Catamaran

Catamaran

The Catamaran is a drink invented by Shannon Tebay from Death & Co., a speakeasy style cocktail bar in New York. She describes the drink as a grapefruit gin colada, and that’s pretty much my first impression on taking a sip. While I did alter […]

How To Make Cinnamon Syrup

Cinnamon Syrup is an easy homemade recipe that can be used in a variety of dishes. While I decided to make some cinnamon syrup so I can make Don’s Mix, you can use it on French Toast, porridge, desserts, and more. It only takes a […]

The Jack Rose

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 […]
